Pediatric Transplant Center

At Children's of Alabama, we have a rich history in the field of pediatric solid organ transplantation in conjunction with The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). For decades children received pre and post transplant care at Children's, with the actual transplantation performed at UAB. We are now happy to announce the opening of the Pediatric Transplant Center at Children's of Alabama, located in the new Benjamin Russell Hospital for Children.

The Alabama Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders

The Alabama Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders is much more than a place. It is an extraordinary partnership of local, national and international centers of excellence that provides care of treatment for 90 percent of the pediatric hematology-oncology patients in the state. Each year, about 150 Alabama children are diagnosed with cancer and approximately 2,000 patients receive care from ACCCBD each year.

Ella Kate Anderson

Ella Kate Anderson made headlines in her hometown of Hartselle in 2013 when at just four years old, she donated over 11 inches of her hair to Locks of Love. She did so in honor of a friend who was battling leukemia. The compassion of a child is always noteworthy, but this
gesture was even more notable because Ella Kate is fighting her own battle with Cystic fibrosis (CF).

Kaileb McIntyre

When Kaileb McIntyre of Birmingham was born at St. Vincent’s hospital nearly 14 weeks before his due date in April 2012, his doctors expected that he would face many of the problems typical for premature babies. “He weighed only 2 lbs. 2 oz. and he had a lot of complications that came along with him being so small, so he had a tough time starting from when he was born,” said his mother, Khalena McIntyre.

Teen Driving

When a teen starts to drive, it’s a thrilling time for him or her, but often a terrifying time for mom and dad -- and with good reason. Nearly half a million teens are injured in crashes on American roadways every year and 3,800 die.

Many factors contribute to teen driver crashes. They include driving while using alcohol or drugs and not wearing seat belts.
