Serving as a regional referral center for more than 2 million people, Children’s Hospital is certified by the state of Tennessee as a Comprehensive Regional Pediatric Center (CRPC). As such, it is capable of providing comprehensive, specialized pediatric medical and surgical care to all acutely ill and injured children. This is the highest level of certification for pediatric care in Tennessee. We are the only hospital in Middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky dedicated solely to the care of acutely and chronically ill children.
