Did you know injuries are the leading cause of death in children ages 19 and younger? More importantly, most child injuries can be prevented. Parents and caregivers can play a life-saving role in protecting children from injuries. That’s why HSHS St. Vincent Children’s Hospital is committed to improving child health and wellness in the area by focusing on child safety and injury prevention.

It’s our goal to provide parents and caregivers the childhood safety knowledge and tools necessary to prevent injuries in kids. With similar missions in mind, we work closely with Prevea Health and Center for Childhood Safety.
