About Phoenix Children's Hospital
Phoenix Children's Hospital has provided hope, healing and the best healthcare for children since it was born in 1983, and has grown to become one of the largest children’s hospitals in the country.
With a Medical Staff of nearly 1,000 pediatric specialists, Phoenix Children’s provides inpatient, outpatient, trauma and emergency care across more than 70 pediatric subspecialties, the most comprehensive pediatric care available in the state. The Hospital’s six Centers of Excellence have grown in size and expertise to place them on par with some of the most prestigious of their kind in the US:
•Barrow Neurological Institute at Phoenix Children’s Hospital
•Phoenix Children’s Heart Center
•Center for Pediatric Orthopedics
•Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders
•Level One Pediatric Trauma Center
•Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
To meet the needs of our growing community, Phoenix Children's continues to expand, adding new physicians, staff, programs and facilities. Specialty and urgent care centers in high growth areas of the Valley and across the state serve the needs of patients and families in their own neighborhoods.
Today, the most visible evidence of growth is a new 11-s...tory tower on the Hospital’s main campus, which offers a comprehensive, family-centered hospital that allows our doctors and nurses to deliver expert care and healing to our community’s youngest patients.
At each location, in each doctor, nurse, technician, staff member and volunteer, you’ll see the difference in a Hospital that’s 100% for children.
