"Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, a not-for-profit healthcare organization, was formed in 1998 when Egleston Children’s Health Care System and Scottish Rite Children’s Medical Center merged. Children’s, a pediatric-accredited hospital, offers family-centered care while providing specialized medical procedures and supplies, age-appropriate play therapy, psychosocial support and a hospital-based school program. A continuing medical education program helps community healthcare providers stay abreast of advances in clinical care. With more than half a million annual patient visits in 2008, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is one of the country’s leading pediatric healthcare providers.
Children’s is the largest Medicaid provider in Georgia. In 2008, Children’s provided $103 million in unreimbursed care and treated eight out of 10 pediatric inpatient Medicaid cases in metro Atlanta. Additionally, Children’s serves as a statewide training resource for the prevention of illness, injury and obesity in children. The Children’s Child Protection Center trains law enforcement personnel on child abuse detection and prevention."
