About Levine Children’s Hospital:

Levine Children’s Hospital is a 234-bed hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina, located on the main campus of Carolinas Medical Center. Since opening in December 2007, the hospital has grown to include more than 40 pediatric specialties and has achieved recognitions that some hospitals take years to achieve. Twice, it has received national distinction by U.S. News & World Report as one of “America’s Best Children’s Hospitals” for treatment of kidney disorders. In 2011, the Neonatal Intensive Care Nursery was the first facility of its kind to receive the gold seal of approval from the Joint Commission – the country’s top accrediting organization.

Levine Children’s Hospital is also home to the Ricky Hendrick Centers for Intensive Care, which support pediatric intensive and cardiovascular surgery patients. Often referred to as the “heart and soul” of the hospital, the sixth floor staff provides care for the most critically ill and injured children from across the region. The space was built on a family-centered care philosophy. The spacious waiting area includes large-screen TVs, a family dining area, a quiet respite room with recliners, and private waiting areas for critical situations. Enabling parents to stay close to their children as much as possible while still managing their daily lives, the intensive care floor includes sleeping rooms for families as well as a family business center designed to help parents keep up with business obligations.

Additional distinctions at Levine Children’s Hospital include Phase I and II cancer trials; organ and bone marrow transplants; pediatric dialysis; interventional cardiology and cardiac surgery; heart-lung bypass capabilities for newborns and pediatric patients; and inpatient pediatric rehabilitation. Levine Children’s Hospital is the most comprehensive facility of its type between Atlanta, GA and Washington, DC – meaning most children no longer need to travel outside of the region to receive the care they need. Its mission is to ensure extraordinary healthcare, all while building partnerships between caregivers and families.
