Every one of us matters in the ongoing mission to provide care for our children. As Virginia's only free standing pediatric hospital, Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters is paving the way with innovative, compassionate care for our community's children. 

For more than 50 years, CHKD has been the only facility of its kind in Virginia, serving the medical and surgical needs of children in Hampton Roads, the Eastern Shore of Virginia and northeastern North Carolina, a region that is home to approximately 500,000 children under the age of 21. As the premier provider of healthcare services to the region's children, CHKD has secured a place in the heart of the community. This year alone, we'll provide care for more than 200,000 children. 

Whether children need our oncologists, child life specialists, emergency room physicians or a host of other pediatric specialists, they receive the highest level of care when they come to CHKD and we continue to make a difference in the lives of our children. 


The King's Daughters is the founding organization of Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters (CHKD).  They have more than 120 years of fascinating history of caring for children starting with a hired bicycle nurse, to opening a clinic, to building a modern stand-alone pediatric hospital!

The King’s Daughters’ mission is to provide support to Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters through fundraising, volunteerism, leadership and advocacy for the children of southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina.

Together, we are turning victims of child abuse into survivors. We are helping children battle cancer. We are teaching children to walk again after traumatic brain injury. We are giving premature newborns a chance for a healthy and productive life.
