About Us

Since the opening of Boys Town National Research Hospital in 1977, the hospital has been internationally recognized as a leader in clinical and research programs focusing on childhood deafness, visual impairment and related communication disorders. We have developed national medical programs that are now instituted in hospitals and clinics across the country.​

Today, the Hospital offers a broad range of hospital and clinic services, backed by 40 years of life-changing research to provide the latest, most innovative care to our patients. From acute pediatric inpatient hospitalization and surgical services to outpatient clinic visits to residential care for children and adolescents with severe behavioral disorders, our board certified specialists and highly trained pediatric nurses are focused on caring for the unique needs of children and their families.

Boys Town Hospital has two locations: 555 North 30th Street in Omaha and 14000 Hospital Road on the campus of Boys Town, Nebraska, with a total of 67 acute licensed beds. Clinic services provided at six locations in Omaha and Council Bluffs, Iowa, include general pediatric care with Boys Town Pediatrics, ear, nose and throat services (including audiology) at the Boys Town Ear, Nose, and Throat Institute, internal medicine, and pediatric specialty care in gastroenterology, allergy, asthma, and pulmonology, behavioral health, orthopedic and ophthalmologic care.

Boys Town National Research Hospital has assembled national leaders in research who are making important contributions in the areas of genetics, hearing, language, vision, speech and neurobehavioral disorders. Applying these findings with new technologies, distance learning and the exploration of new research frontiers, the opportunities for new medical diagnoses, evaluation and treatment discoveries are endless.

Boys Town National Research Hospital is dedicated to providing leading edge clinical care, pioneering translational research and improving the lives of children and their families through applied technology and educational outreach programs. The hospital annually serves more than 44,000 children and families from across the United States.
