What We Treat

Your safety is our priority

Because the health and safety of our patients, visitors and staff is a priority, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is:

  • Screening all patients and visitors for illness including a temperature check. No sick visitors will be allowed in our facilities.
  • Allowing two caregivers with each patient. No other family or visitors are allowed.
    • Some services within our hospitals continue to have one caregiver limits. These services include hospital radiology and laboratory services, as well as outpatient clinics for transplant, infusion, cancer and blood disorders, and rehabilitation, and our Center for Advanced Technology and Robotic Rehabilitation.
  • Requiring everyone to wear a mask at all times during their visit.
  • Practicing social distancing by staying 6 feet away from other patients and visitors.
  • Enhancing cleaning measures.

Children’s is home to one of the leading pediatric transplant centers in the country offering comprehensive pre- and post-transplant services to children, teens and young adults with end-stage diseases of the liver, heart and kidney.

What is a transplant?

A solid organ transplant gives your child a healthy organ (heart, liver or kidney) from a donor. A donor is a person who gives your child an organ.
