"As a pediatric teaching hospital for Washington University School of Medicine, the medical innovations our team is constantly working on attract families from around the world to the hospital", says Gary Silverman, MD, PhD, pediatrician-in-chief at Washington University School of Medicine at St. Louis Children's Hospital.
