Since 1911, Children’s of Alabama has provided specialized medical care for ill and injured children. Ranked among the best pediatric medical centers in the nation by US News & World Report, Children’s provided care for youngsters from every county in Alabama, 42 other states and 10 foreign countries last year, representing more than 653,000 outpatient visits and nearly 14,000 inpatient admissions. With more than 2 million square feet, it is the third largest pediatric medical facility in the U.S. Children’s offers inpatient and outpatient services across its Russell Campus on Birmingham’s historic Southside with additional specialty services provided at Children’s South, Children’s on 3rd and in Huntsville and Montgomery. Primary care is provided at more than a dozen medical offices in communities across central Alabama. Children’s of Alabama is the only medical center in Alabama dedicated solely to the care and treatment of children. It is a private, not-for-profit medical center that serves as the primary site of the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) pediatric medicine, surgery, psychiatry, research and residency programs.
Children’s of Alabama Cardiovascular Services division has often been referred to as a “Heart Hospital within a Hospital” because it represents a five decade tradition of superior clinical care and research dedicated solely to children. The medical service focuses on making the patient and the family at the center of care. This single platform of care includes surgeons, CVICU, cardiology and many others, including nurses, social workers, child life therapists, counselors, nutritionists, occupational and physical therapists, and chaplains.
