Welcome to the Levine Children's Hospital

Levine Children’s Hospital provides the full range of clinical services for children, from primary care to highly specialized quaternary services, such as transplantation. As the largest children’s hospital between Atlanta and Washington, DC, we serve the children of both Carolinas, the Southeast and increasingly the US. Throughout the hospital and clinics, the integration of our pediatric residents with surgical and pediatric subspecialists, as well as with primary care pediatricians, provides a unique and rich educational experience.

Many of our faculty members are national leaders in their respective fields, and they have trained at diverse and great programs. The faculty provide outstanding care to our patients in a family-centered environment, and many are engaged in quality improvement and clinical research to improve the care that we deliver. Teaching residents and medical students is a passion, and Carolinas Medical Center, which includes Levine Children’s Hospital, is the Charlotte campus of the UNC School of Medicine.

Together with our nurses, nurse practitioners, social workers, dietitians, child life specialists, respiratory therapists and other care providers trained in the care of children work as a team to care for our children. We are also proud to have an extensive network of primary care providers on our team.

For 2017-2018, we have been named a Best Children’s Hospital by U.S. News & World Report in six specialties – cardiology & heart surgery, cancer, nephrology, gastroenterology & GI surgery, neurology & neurosurgery, and orthopaedics. Two of these, nephrology (#22) and cardiology & heart surgery (#24) were in the top 25.

As a pediatric resident, you will be an important member of our care team and will work closely with physicians, nurses and other staff. Your experiences and education will prepare you well for either pediatric practice or becoming a pediatric subspecialty fellow. Our dedicated educational leadership team will work hard to ensure that your three years in Charlotte is a great learning experience and enjoyable.
