Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children is the only hospital in the region committed to women’s health and advanced pediatric health care.

Our specialized team cares for children suffering from injuries or illness by providing pediatric emergency services, pediatric intensive care, level three neonatal intensive care and pediatric surgery. These hospital programs are supported by our full-time, pediatric specialized medical staff, nurses and therapists. We are also home to one of only eight St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Affiliate Clinics in the nation, and the only one in Alabama. As the safety net for North Alabama we provide two Kids Care Ambulances staffed with pediatric ICU nurses who assist in the transport of critically ill infants and children from other hospitals in the region to be cared for in our hospital. 

We also provide specialized health care for women including women’s surgery, the F. Joseph Kelly Adult Intensive Care Unit, the Breast Center,  a dedicated walk-in OB emergency program that is part of our Maternity Services department, which welcomes more babies than any other hospital in Alabama.
