In Service to Our Smallest Patients

When you work at one of the foremost hospitals in the world, there’s an expectation that you’re always moving forward. Nowhere is this truer than at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) – a facility that serves an exclusively pediatric population, and one that provides the most difficult diagnostic and treatment challenges its staff have ever encountered. How do the labs at GOSH tackle these medical mysteries? By recognizing the unique needs of their patient population – and by working together across disciplines and specialties.
