About Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta
What started in 1915 in two rented cottages with 20 beds has grown into one of the nation’s pre-eminent pediatric healthcare systems with world-class professionals and a leading research program. For more than a century, we’ve fought to ensure all children have access to the specialized care they need.
Consistently ranked among the top children’s hospitals by U.S. News & World Report, we provide access to more than 2,100 pediatric physicians and allied health practitioners across more than 60 pediatric programs. Our system represents a committed movement of more than 11,500 employees and more than 10,000 volunteers.
As a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing high-quality pediatric care to the kids in our community, we depend on the generous support of our donors.
Every day, lifesaving work happens here. Your contribution helps us provide a wide range of necessary care, from pediatric cancer treatments to organ transplants, fracture care and appendectomies.
