Welcome to North Carolina Children's Hospital


As a top-tier academic medical center, UNC Children's protects the health of children throughout North Carolina and beyond, no matter how critical or rare their challenges. More than merely treating patients, we uphold a four-tiered mission to "CARE," aligning clinical care, advocacy, research, and education to deliver world-class, patient- and family-centered carealways regardless of a family's ability to pay.

UNC Children's offers complete inpatient and outpatient care at our state-of-the-art clinical home, N.C. Children's Hospital, a part of UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill. We also bring leading-edge care closer to home through more than two dozen satellite outpatient clinics located throughout North Carolina and a partnership with New Hanover Regional Medical Center in Wilmington.
