About Children’s Hospital

The world-class facilities at Children’s Hospital are a testament to our community’s dedication to the health of children. Constructed in 2004, expanded in 2012, and now completing another major addition, our 305-bed hospital is a child-friendly place built on the science of healing.

A building alone does not make a great hospital. Our exceptional medical teams and the generous support of people like you enable us to provide every child who comes to us with the hope of improved health. Children’s Hospital is a nonprofit facility. We care for children regardless of their families’ ability to pay.

Many of our doctors and surgeons are nationally recognized researchers who are finding new ways to cure and prevent childhood diseases. Their work preventing and treating premature birth, cancer, heart disease, spina bifida, and many other conditions is an investment in the future. We are at an important crossroads in child health. Our commitment to research and advocacy positions us to bring the promise of good health to children and families in our community and to share that hope with the world.

Ballad Health is an integrated healthcare system serving 29 counties of Northeast Tennessee, Southwest Virginia, Northwest North Carolina and Southeast Kentucky. Our system was created to improve the health of the people we serve.

Ballad Health operates a family of 21 hospitals, including three tertiary medical centers, a dedicated children’s hospital, community hospitals, three critical access hospitals, a behavioral health hospital, an addiction treatment facility, long-term care facilities, home care and hospice services, retail pharmacies, outpatient services and a comprehensive medical management corporation.

At Ballad Health, we’re completely invested in our communities because we’re your neighbors, and this is our community, too. We’re here to listen to you and address your unique needs – and we’ll always be accountable.
How did we get our name?
Ballad Health was formed in 2018 by the merger of two regional health systems. When we came together to create Ballad Health, we started something brand new. Our new organization was built with community effort and is designed to meet local needs. Because of that, we wanted our new name to reflect our region’s strength and what local people told us they value most in a healthcare provider.

So we asked around – a lot. We surveyed people throughout our region, and asked them what they most want from a healthcare interaction. The top response? People told us they want to receive care from someone who really listens to them. When our health is at stake, we need to be able to trust our caregiver. We need to know that the person sitting with us in the exam room or at our bedside understands where we’re coming from and how we got where we are today. Each life is a series of interconnected stories, and every story is important.

In fact, stories are a big part of what makes our region special. Our local history is deeply rooted in our stories and our songs – they capture who we are, where we’ve come from, and everything we’ve seen along the way.
A ballad is a song that tells a story.
It paints a picture of a person or event, and helps us find something in the story that we can connect with. Ballads help us understand each other. They celebrate our past, give meaning to the present, and help us build a stronger future.

We chose the name Ballad Health because we want to be reminded every day that good health is about more than healthcare – it’s about the story of our lives. When you choose to tell your story to us, you’re giving us a sacred trust, and it is absolutely essential that we listen.

We’re not perfect, but we are completely committed. We’ve started this journey together as a community, and we’re going to work together as one region to write the next chapter of our story together. This chapter is about you.

It’s your story. We’re listening.

Pediatric Services

Children are naturally susceptible to sickness, injuries and accidents. Their immune systems are still getting stronger, giving them a higher risk of catching contagious illnesses. Plus, children are inherently curious and may therefore get into more accidents that lead to injury.
