The Children's Care Network

Clinically Integrating to Provide Better Care for Georgia's Kids
Children's Care Network 

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta believes every child deserves access to the specialized care provided when independent pediatric physicians and Children’s work together.

To meet the new demands of a changing healthcare market, a group of committed community physicians partnered with Children’s to create The Children’s Care Network, a physician-led, taxable nonprofit subsidiary corporation of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. The Children’s Care Network, Georgia’s only clinically integrated pediatric network, will demonstrate performance and value by emphasizing data-driven approaches to quality improvements.

Pediatricians can benefit from a unified, collaborative system that offers group purchasing power, cost savings, technical resources and an association with Children’s—the largest and most trusted pediatric healthcare system in the state.

Patients will receive comprehensive, quality care provided by pediatric-trained physicians devoted to caring for children.

Ultimately, through The Children’s Care Network, we seek to ensure our pediatric system of care will produce better health outcomes for our kids.
