Located adjacent to the Emory campus, Egleston is a 260 bed hospital with over 50,000 ED visits and 10,000 admissions per year. Founded in 1928 as the Henrietta Egleston Hospital for Children, it has served as Emory University’s pediatric teaching affiliate since 1956.
Egleston offers a full complement of subspecialty services as well as organ and bone marrow transplantation. ICU facilities include a dedicated Cardiac Intensive Care unit and ECMO capabilities in PICU, NICU and CICU.
Residents rotate through General Pediatrics and Subspecialty Inpatient Wards, PICU, and the Emergency Department.
Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Hughes Spalding

Located in the heart of downtown Atlanta, Hughes Spalding is the smallest freestanding children’s hospital in the nation. It has only 24 inpatient beds yet its Emergency Center cares for over 50,000 patients a year.
Residents rotate through Inpatient Wards and the Emergency Department and spend time in outpatient clinics including Primary Care (where first and second year residents maintain their continuity clinics), Adolescent, Autism, and Child Protection. A number of other subspecialty clinics also have practices at Hughes Spalding that residents may rotate through.

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite

Scottish Rite is located on Atlanta’s northern perimeter and hosts our 3rd year resident hospitalist rotation and multiple elective opportunities. With 273 beds and ~10,000 admissions per year, it is comparable in size and volume to Egleston but retains a more community oriented structure. These differences afford residents a contrasting experience to the more traditional academically structured services at Egleston. Scottish Rite also houses the Children’s Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit, where children recovering from life-changing injuries or illness receive comprehensive rehabilitation services to help them regain skills and independence.
Grady Memorial Hospital

Emory Pediatric Residents rotate through term nursery and NICU at Grady in order to obtain delivery room and newborn care experiences. Located in downtown Atlanta alongside Hughes Spalding, Grady originally opened in 1882 with 110 beds and has grown into one of the largest public health systems in the country. Around 3000 newborns are delivered annually at Grady and it also serves as the Regional Perinatal Center for North Georgia. Its Level 3 neonatal unit features multidisciplinary support for 42 NICU/ ventilator beds and 27 intermediate care nursery beds.
