UVA Children’s Hospital
A network of pediatric health care facilities operating under the umbrella of the University of Virginia Health System, the University’s Children’s Hospital is a “hospital without walls,” dedicated to providing comprehensive inpatient and outpatient care for infants, children, and adolescents in a family-centered environment.
Last year, there were more than 3,000 admissions to the inpatient units of the Children’s Hospital and more than 60,000 outpatient visits to our ambulatory clinics, with patients coming from Virginia and beyond.
Inpatient and outpatient visits range from the simplest newborn check-up to complex medical procedures like liver, lung, or heart transplants and complex neurosurgery.
