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.

You can improve medical care for children in our community in a variety of ways:

Make A Direct Donation

Many people choose to donate directly to help infants and children, and they can choose different funds based on their interests. Make a donation.
