Modern (western) medical treatment for children was first started in Korea when Kwan Hye Von (“The House of Extended Grace”: renamed Che Yung Won – “Universal Utility”) was founded in 1885.

The first lecture on pediatrics was first realized when a class called “Childhood Illness” was introduced into the curriculum at the Severance Medical College in 1913.

As pediatric treatment and education continued, the requirements for the condition of treatment and its system, in particular, increased, which led to the establishment of the Children’s Clinic in 1983.

And since 1991, the demand for the children’s hospital has become even stronger, since professors and graduates in departments connected with pediatricians even raised funds and donations for the hospital.

Thanks to such efforts, in 1999, a children’s treatment center was set up, the predecessor of the Children’s Clinic, where the children’s and youth department worked together with the relevant departments to treat young patients.

Pediatric Clinic Severance was founded in June 2006.

Since its founding in 2006, Severance Pediatric Clinic has reached a partnership agreement with the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), which is considered the best children’s hospital in the United States and holds an annual International Symposium. In addition, professors in the pediatric department recognized at an early stage the need for a specialized pediatric ward (i.e., respiratory, blood tumor) and continued education in America and France; later they returned to form the first group of professors in history specializing in the pediatric department in Korea. Also in the departments of surgery, including pediatric surgery, pediatric neurosurgery and pediatric orthopedics, the hospital is fully staffed by professors who specialize in childhood diseases.

The departments of the Children’s Clinic “Sevan” make great efforts to improve pediatrics in Korea, but also to become the best clinic in the world, based on its excellent clinical experience and research results.
