SPECIALIZED CARE
CLOSE TO HOME

When your child needs medical attention for an injury or illness, you want the peace of mind of knowing you have specialized care close to home.

At Kentucky Children’s Hospital, we provide care that has been recognized as among the best in the nation. In 2020, U.S. News & World Report honored our pediatric heart program with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and our pediatric orthopaedics program with Shriners Hospital as some of the country’s top programs. These rankings demonstrate our dedication to providing the best care possible to children of the Commonwealth.

Kids aren’t just small adults — they have complex and distinct medical needs. At Kentucky Children’s Hospital, our pediatric clinics offer individualized care from providers with expertise in all aspects of children’s health.

WHY CHOOSE A
CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL?

Our health is not the same at every age. We have unique needs at each stage and age of life, from infancy through our senior years. That’s especially true when it comes to kids.

Children not only have medical needs that differ from adults, but they also have a need for additional support and care. Their injuries cannot be handled the same way you would an adult’s.

Kentucky Children’s Hospital was designed with children in mind, and our equipment and programs are specific to the physical and emotional needs of children. Families not only have access to the medical services your child needs, but also to services designed to help improve the patient experience. For example, our child life team is available to help children understand why they are in the hospital, provide them with distractions to keep them entertained, and prepare them for what to expect before, during and after a procedure.

Kentucky Children’s Hospital is dedicated to the needs of kids. Our team of medical providers includes specialists with expertise in the specialized medical needs and anatomy of children.

Whether you’re working with a pediatrician, surgeon, nurse, therapist, technician or other healthcare professional, you can rest assured that your child is being treated by one of Kentucky’s top pediatric healthcare specialists. But more than that, they also have a love for kids.

We work collaboratively to provide care that’s focused on what’s best for both your child and your family. At our hospital for kids, compassion is at the forefront. We will care for your child at every step of the way, with a combination of exceptional pediatric care and compassion that goes well beyond simply treating symptoms.

YOUR CHOICE FOR
COMPREHENSIVE CARE

When you seek care at a children’s hospital, there’s also another benefit. Many medical conditions and injuries require a collaborative approach for effective diagnosis and treatment, meaning they need the attention of multiple medical specialists or the use of multiple diagnostic or treatment tools.

At a pediatric hospital, all the care your child needs can be received within the same hospital system, saving you the time and trouble of having to arrange for outside care or testing.

At Kentucky Children’s Hospital, you have access to comprehensive pediatric care and supportive services to help you navigate diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care.

At Kentucky Children’s Hospital, we’re your partners every step of the way. We know your child’s health and happiness is what you want most – and that’s what we want, too.
