Children's of Alabama

Children’s of Alabama has provided specialized medical care for ill and injured children across the state and throughout the southeastern U.S. since 1911. It is the only hospital in Alabama dedicated solely to the care and treatment of children. Ten of its divisions – pulmonology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics, urology, neonatology, cancer, cardiology, gastroenterology, endocrinology and nephrology—were recently ranked among the best children’s hospital programs in the nation by US News & World Report.

Children’s is one of the 10 busiest pediatric hospitals in the nation and is home to Alabama’s only pediatric trauma center and the only pediatric burn center in the Southeast. Some of its nationally-renowned premier programs include The Alabama Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders, the Lowder Blood and Marrow Transplantation Program, a comprehensive neonatal surgical center and the fast-growing pediatric rheumatology program. Outpatient care is provided through primary care offices and outpatient centers throughout Alabama. Last year, patients made more than 634,000 outpatient and nearly 14,000 inpatient visits to Children’s.

Children’s is recognized by the American Nurses Credentialing Center as a Magnet-designated hospital for excellence in nursing care. It is a private, not-for-profit hospital that serves as the primary site of the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) pediatric medicine, surgery, research and residency programs. A 750,000-square-feet expansion is currently under construction.
