Caring for Kids

Doctor giving a patient a high-five

Keeping kids safe and healthy is a tough job. We can help.

Whether you’ve got a newborn, a toddler or a house full of teens, you’ll find valuable health and wellness tips you can use.

And when your children do need medical care, you can be confident knowing you’ve got the region’s most advanced pediatric care right here close to home. That’s the power of advanced medicine.

For those unexpected illnesses and injuries, we offer the region’s only Emergency Department dedicated exclusively to children. The Makenna David Pediatric Emergency Department is staffed 24/7 with doctors and other professionals who specialize in pediatrics and know that children are not just small adults.

When you plan for emergencies, be sure to let your child’s school and caregivers know that you choose Kentucky Children’s Hospital. We promise, your child will be in the best possible hands.

Our Back-to-School page is full of expert tips and advice for making this year the healthiest and best one yet for your kids. Follow our blog on children's health.
