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.

Alex Thompson

Ross and Ingrid Thompson only thought they knew the meaning of the word “hope” when they named their newborn daughter Alexandra Hope. But 12 years later, the word would take on an even deeper meaning when Alex was diagnosed with a brain tumor.

It began as a typical Monday at Hewitt Trussville Middle School, where Alex is a 7th grader. “I was fine and then I felt like a hammer had struck my forehead,” Alex remembers.
Alex's Full Story.

James Strong

His family and friends call him “The Strong 1.”

He plays basketball and tennis, loves to swim and is passionate about his Alabama Crimson Tide football team. He works to raise awareness and funds for children who struggle with life-threatening medical conditions, and he is a mentor to younger children. He also inspired his mother to achieve her dream of being a teacher who holds a master’s degree in collaborative special education.

Playground Safety

Children love to play on the playground. Playgrounds offer youngsters an opportunity to be outside, play with friends, and get some exercise. Play is incredibly important to the development of children's social, emotional, cognitive and physical development, as well as creativity and imagination. But unfortunately, each year, more than 200,000 children are treated at hospital emergency rooms for playground related injuries. Many of these accidents are preventable.
