As of April 5, 2016, All Children’s Hospital, the Johns Hopkins Medicine pediatric hospital based in St. Petersburg, Florida, officially changed its name to Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital. The hospital announced its new name and logo at an event celebrating its 90th anniversary of providing pediatric health care and service to families.

The partnership between Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital and Johns Hopkins Medicine began in 2011, when All Children’s Hospital became the only hospital in the United States outside of the Baltimore/Washington metro area to join Johns Hopkins.

As part of this collaboration, a significant resource has been developed with the groundbreaking of the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Research and Education Building. This will help further pediatric health care in the southeastern U.S. and around the world.

Mark Stroud, chair of Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital’s board of trustees, says: “Children in Florida will now have access to a global leader in health care that has been on the front lines of fighting catastrophic illness, injury and childhood disease. We expect even more innovative health care options and economic opportunities to emerge from this relationship.” 

Anniversary Celebration Highlights New Name and Logo

The newly named Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital celebrated its 90th anniversary with a special event and logo unveiling held for more than 500 hospital supporters, staff, Johns Hopkins leadership and local community officials.

Celebrating 90 Years

Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital was founded in 1926 as the American Legion Hospital for Crippled Children to care for children with polio and other disorders. After the development of the polio vaccine, the hospital developed a new focus in pediatric care, reopening as All Children’s Hospital in 1967.

More recently, the teaching hospital, named to U.S. News & World Report'Best Children's Hospitals list, has led innovative research to cure and prevent childhood diseases while equipping residents with the training they need to become experts in pediatric care. In 2011, the hospital sought out Johns Hopkins Medicine as a new partner in its drive to discover, educate and innovate.

2016 marks an exciting time for the hospital, celebrating 90 years of caring for children, five years of collaboration with Johns Hopkins Medicine, and becoming Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital.
