UVA Children's Hospital: Pediatric primary & specialty care
At UVA Children's Hospital, we know that outstanding medical care is about more than making the right diagnosis and offering the latest technology. It's making sure you and your child have the best possible experience, whether it's making an appointment or having a complex surgery.
As a top children's hospital ranked by U.S. News & World Report, we know kids often have the biggest hearts, the biggest fears and even bigger dreams.
We provide compassionate care in more than 30 specialties, with a dedicated pediatric emergency department, neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) and consolidated outpatient clinics at our Battle Building in Charlottesville.
Our pediatricians work with families to ensure the physical, mental and emotional well-being of our young patients from birth to age 21.
Learn what to bring, what your child needs to pack, lodging options for you and your family so you can feel less stressed about your child’s visit.
Our child life specialists help children and families cope with their healthcare experiences and ease their fears and confusion.
