Children’s of Alabama

Children’s of Alabama has provided specialized medical care for ill and injured children across the state and throughout the southeastern U.S. since 1911. Children’s is consistently ranked among the best children’s hospital programs in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. Last year, patients made more than 653,000 outpatient and nearly 14,000 inpatient visits to Children’s from every county in Alabama and from 42 other states and 10 foreign counties.

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 outpatient and diagnostic imaging services provided at Children’s South and Children’s on 3rd. Primary care is provided at more than a dozen offices in communities across central and north Alabama.

Children’s is the only hospital in Alabama dedicated solely to the care and treatment of children. It is a private, not-for-profit hospital that serves as the primary site of the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) pediatric medicine, surgery, research and residency programs.  More information is available at
