Pediatric Specialty Divisions

Home to multiple sub-specialties, the UVA Department of Pediatrics strives to be recognized as a leading unit in the School of Medicine; to be a united team that embodies pride in the missions of the department and divisions, with an environment built on respect, teamwork, learning, and continuous improvement.

We are excited to announce that UVA Children’s is the No. 1 children’s hospital in Virginia for the second consecutive year as ranked by U.S. News and World Report — the first two years the publication has produced state-by-state rankings of the nation’s best children’s hospitals. In addition, we are extraordinarily proud that six UVA Children’s specialties are now among the top 50 in the country (an increase in ranked specialties over last year), proving that UVA Children’s is truly home to an elite group of compassionate pediatric specialists and care teams.
