What makes the Children’s Hospital of Georgia a leader in pediatric care?

For one thing, it’s our belief that family comes first.

It’s giving children the love and attention they need to heal. It’s helping parents and loved ones find hope in their darkest hour. It’s using the tools we’ve been given to make miracles happen every day. For 20 years, the Children’s Hospital of Georgia has been helping kids live their very best lives. That’s something to celebrate.

Celebrate 20 years of healing, hope and miracles on social media with #GAChildrens20.
