Founded in 1961, Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters is the only freestanding, full-service children’s hospital in Virginia and serves the medical and surgical needs of children throughout southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina. The not-for-profit hospital provides inpatient and outpatient care, addressing illnesses, injuries and chronic conditions in children from birth through age 21. CHKD provides the highest designation of neonatal intensive care in our region, as well as specialty units for pediatric intensive care, rehabilitation, cancer treatment, medical and surgical care and transitional care. CHKD is also home to the region’s only dedicated pediatric emergency center.
The hospital is at the hub of a comprehensive health system dedicated exclusively to children. CHKD surgery centers at the hospital in Norfolk and at outpatient facilities in Newport News and Virginia Beach offer state-of-the-art surgery for complex and routine procedures. Our surgeons have pioneered new procedures and learned innovative techniques to bring the best surgical care to children of all ages. Specialty medical care and rehabilitative and diagnostic services are offered at CHKD health centers throughout the region. And a host of CHKD pediatricians provide primary pediatric care.
