Who We Are

Across three hospitals and multiple neighborhood locations, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is the leader for pediatric healthcare in Georgia. For more than 100 years, our purpose has been the same: making kids better today and healthier tomorrow.

From humble beginnings to national leaders, the Children’s story is one of persistence.

As we unveil the vision for our next 100 years, take a moment to learn who we are and where we’ve been.

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.

Our Foundation
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.

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is a 501(c)(3) organization, gifts to which may be deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes.
