10 Years at Randall Children's Hospital and a lifetime of children's care
When Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel opened in 2012, we offered a new world of care for the next generation. A world where kids still get to be kids, even while they are healing.
Nearly 500,000 kids and their families have visited us during the past ten years. We’ve been honored to care for them on some of their hardest days and celebrate with them in moments of healing and hope. As we reflect on this great milestone, we’re revisiting stories of the extraordinary kids who have come to Randall Children’s Hospital for care.
