When a child is diagnosed with an illness or suffers a traumatic injury, you want the best medical resources available – close to home. With the support of generous donors, Atrium Health Levine Children’s has quickly established itself as a nationally recognized hospital that offers comprehensive medical care for children from birth to young adulthood.


Philanthropy helped build Levine Children’s, which opened debt-free in 2007, and donations are crucial to supporting vital programs and services, such as:

  • Specialized medical equipment for intensive care, cardiovascular surgery, and physical in-patient / out-patient therapy.
  • Pediatric Cancer Research (Phase I and II Clinical Research Trials). Learn more about the Carolinas KIDS Cancer Research Coalition.
  • Patient and family services, such as the Child Life Program, Family Resource Center, and the Ryan Seacrest Studios.

The Ryan Seacrest Studios

The Ryan Seacrest Studios, an in-house multimedia broadcast center, opened in July 2013 at Atrium Health’s Levine Children’s Hospital. Thanks to the Ryan Seacrest Foundation and the continued support of generous donors throughout the community, patients at Levine Children’s Hospital now have the ability to explore the creative realms of radio, television, and new media right from their hospital rooms. We are one of just a handful of children’s hospitals nationwide to have this resource available for our patients and families. Donations to the Seacrest Studios support programming and experiences for patients and their families while visiting the studio!
