UNC Children’s protects the health and well-being of all North Carolina children, aligning world-class clinical care, advocacy, research and education in its four-tiered mission to “CARE.” As experts in the treatment of children with virtually any disease or disorder, its clinical specialists work hand-in-hand with community hospitals and pediatricians across the state, providing specialty care to more than 70,000 children from all 100 counties each year—always regardless of a family’s ability to pay.
