Since 1990, Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital has provided a childhood lead poisoning prevention and treatment program, which includes inpatient, outpatient and community outreach services.

The hospital's lead treatment team is striving to increase awareness of the risks of lead poisoning, to encourage all parents to have their children treated and to treat those children with lead poisoning by educating them about the various dietary and environmental modifications they can make to improve their condition. Since its inception, the program has treated hundreds of children.
