Since 1911, Children's Hospital of Alabama has provided quality, and comprehensive health care to Alabama's pediatric population. Situated in the heart of Birmingham
's southside, it also serves as the primary teaching facility for UAB?s Department of Pediatrics and boasts a medical research division that is second to none.
Children's Hospital is a 225-bed facility that cares for medical and surgical cases for newborn through 19 years of age. The 13 on-site outpatient clinics handle follow-up visits for these patients as well as referrals from health departments across the state. Last year CHS saw 12,000 inpatients, 540,000 outpatient visits, and nearly 50,000 visits to the level-one Emergency Department.
As the number of patients at Children?s has increased, so has the number of Children?s employees. Since 1979, Children?s has gone from employing fewer than 400 people who worked exclusively in Birmingham to a workforce of more than 2,500 working throughout Alabama.
