UNC Health Care Children's logo

For more than half a century, the Department of Pediatrics at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine has offered excellent, cutting-edge care in our children’s units at UNC Hospitals. 2002 marked the beginning of a new era. For the first time, all pediatric services were provided out of a single state-of-the-art facility, NC Children’s Hospital. Located on the UNC medical campus in Chapel Hill, NC, the Children’s Hospital allows the Department to provide complete inpatient and outpatient care for children in one location, a true children’s hospital.
