MCG Children's Medical Center is the area's only children’s hospital, dedicated to serving the health care needs of children, from newborns to teenagers. As a part of an academic medical center, we are at the forefront of medicine, conducting the research that advances pediatric medicine and bringing the treatments and technologies of tomorrow to patient care today. Our team of pediatric specialists -- the largest number in the area -- uses their expertise and training to treat everything from common childhood illnesses to life-threatening conditions.
We recognize the importance of family involvement in a child’s healing process. That’s why we embrace a philosophy of family-centered care. Our staff -- from pediatric physicians and nurses to child life specialists and on-site teachers -- are specially trained to meet the needs of children and to work closely with their families, making sure they are kept fully informed and are involved in every aspect of their child's care.
