The costs of antimicrobial stewardship programs (ASPs) in children's hospitals have not been described previously. We assessed ASP costs using an online survey administered to ASP leaders at U.S. children's hospitals. ASP costs varied from $17,000 to $388,500 annually (median, $187,400). Overall costs were not correlated with hospital size. Infect Control Hosp Epidemiol 2016;37:852-854.
