Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters (CHKD) is Virginia’s only freestanding, full-service pediatric hospital – treating children from birth through age 21 – and the site of the state’s only dedicated pediatric emergency center. Located in Norfolk, Virginia, in a medical complex that includes Eastern Virginia Medical School and Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, the hospital and its community-based Health Centers primarily serve southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina, but also treat children from across the United States and around the world.
Since the Norfolk City Union of The King’s Daughters established the hospital in 1961, CHKD has undergone two major renovations and expansions and is now at the hub of a comprehensive system of caring dedicated exclusively to children. Whether a child needs hospitalization, ongoing care for a chronic illness, outpatient surgery or primary care, CHKD Health System provides the staff, facilities and technologies that address the unique demands of childhood.
