UVA Children's Hospital

Caring for our Smallest Patients

When you're talking about a three-year-old girl fighting a life-threatening disease, you measure success in smiles, in hours playing dress up, and in time spent picking strawberries with her mother.

None of these things seemed possible just two years ago when Anna was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Now, Anna takes part in all these activities and more, thanks to the care she received at UVA Children's Hospital.

At UVA Children's Hospital, children receive special care in a warm, friendly environment designed especially for them and their families. Our Children's Hospital offers total healthcare — everything from well-baby visits to heart transplants — and conducts breakthrough research in childhood diseases.
