Our Approach

With comprehensive pediatric clinical expertise and the experience in taking care of generations of children, our team provides expert care based on your individual child’s growth patterns and specific level of development. At Children’s Hospital of Georgia, we understand that your child’s health affects the entire family. We also know that life doesn’t slow down when illness occurs. Our team provides a full support staff that helps your whole family through short term or longer term health issues. We have a team of Child Life Specialists that help young patients cope during a hospital or clinic visit, focusing on extra support for coping and normal childhood activities while receiving medical care.

While CHOG provides care for every single clinical pediatric specialty, our team also has access to all of the resources of our full academic medical center at Augusta University.

  • We have the region's only board-certified pediatric ophthalmologist.
  • We practice a multi-disciplinary team approach across all areas of clinical care with a robust research and clinical trials program to continue to develop advanced and more effective treatments and cures.
  • Pediatric nurses and technicians that are specially trained to work with children
  • Patient Family Centered Care

With such comprehensive care, we are able to take care of any routine childhood issue, but also the very complex or rare pediatric conditions. When you choose CHOG for your child’s care, an entire team of experts are focused on the health and well-being of your child for optimum growth and development.
