UVA Children's Hospital

Healthier Ever After

From treating sore throats to transplanting tiny beating hearts, UVA Children's Hospital experts can handle most anything. We have child-sized medical equipment and cheerful, colorful exam rooms — everything is designed especially for children and families. 

UVA Children's Hospital supporters champion the lives of children every day. Along with supporting the needs of patients and their families, the gifts of UVA Children's Champions provide seed funding for essential research in childhood diseases — research that is taking place right here at UVA.

We are proud to announce that any gift you make to UVA Children’s Hospital – no matter the size – makes you a UVA Children’s Champion.

Battle Building Celebrates One-Year Anniversary

One year ago on June 14th, the Battle Building at UVA Children's Hospital opened its doors, changing the way we deliver care to our youngest patients and their families. We sat down with James Nataro, MD, MBA, PhD, Chair of UVA's Department of Pediatrics, and Karin League, RN, Associate Chief of Women's and Children's Services, to reflect on the impact of the Battle Building. Read their interview here.

Miracle Child Abby Snider

Abby Snider is a Miracle Child at UVA Children’s Hospital and one of the bravest kids we know. 

Diagnosed with cancer last March, Abby was not able to celebrate her 15th birthday. Her parents promised themselves that this year would be different. Told that she was going to be speaking at dinner benefiting the Stillbrave Childhood Cancer Foundation, Abby worked tirelessly on her speech. On the day of the dinner, dressed in a beautiful gown, she traveled to the George Washington Hotel.
