UNC Children’s has a four-tiered mission to C.A.R.E. that aligns clinical care, advocacy, research and education to deliver world-class, family-centered care – always regardless of a family’s ability to pay. Our exceptional clinical care ensures that no child needs to leave North Carolina for treatment of any medical condition regardless of how critical or rare the challenge.

Children and families are at the heart of everything we do. We are passionate about our work and all of the people we serve. Your support will make an impact on children’s health here in North Carolina and around the world.

Care, Compassion, and Love

Lily, born at 22 weeks

“Here’s the thing- it’s not just the care Lily received but the care our whole family received. The staff loved us, even when we were being not so loveable. They carried us through one of the most difficult and devastating times in our lives. They saved my daughter’s life. I will never be able to thank them enough for the care, compassion, and love. If Lily was at any other hospital, I’m not sure she would have survived.”

– Juli, Lily’s mom
