The CHIPS staff is a team of specially trained clinical counselors, doctors, social workers, and nurses who work with law enforcement, the Department of Human Resources and child advocacy center representatives to provide the best possible care for children and families traumatized by physical and/or sexual abuse.

Since 1911, Children’s of Alabama has provided specialized medical care for ill and injured children, offering inpatient and outpatient services throughout central Alabama. Last year, families made more than 670,000 outpatient visits and experienced nearly 14,000 inpatient days at Children’s, coming from every county in Alabama and from 45 other states and four foreign countries. With more than 2 million square feet, Children’s is the third largest pediatric medical facility in the U.S. and is ranked among the top children’s hospital programs in the country by US News & World Report.
