Department of Pediatrics

Located in the heart of downtown Atlanta, Hughes Spalding is one of the smallest freestanding children's hospitals in the nation with 24 inpatient beds and an emergency department that manages close to 50,000 visits. 

Residents rotate through inpatient general pediatrics wards and the emergency department, and spend time in outpatient clinics including primary care (where a majority of first and second year residents have their continuity clinic), adolescent, developmental-behavioral pediatrics clinic, and one of our child advocacy clinics. A number of other subspecialty clinics also have practices at Hughes Spalding through which residents may rotate.

Scottish Rite is located on Atlanta’s northern perimeter and hosts our 3rd year resident hospitalist rotation and multiple elective opportunities. With 319 beds and ~83,000 inpatient days, it is comparable in size and volume to Egleston but retains more of a community hospital structure. These differences afford residents a contrasting experience to the more academic environment at Egleston. Scottish Rite also houses the Children’s Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit, where children recovering from life-changing injuries or illness receive comprehensive rehabilitation services to help them regain skills and independence.

Emory Pediatric Residents rotate through term nursery and NICU at Grady in order to obtain delivery room and newborn care experiences. Located in downtown Atlanta alongside Hughes Spalding, Grady originally opened in 1882 with 110 beds and has grown into one of the largest public health systems in the country. Around 3000 newborns are delivered annually at Grady and it also serves as the Regional Perinatal Center for North Georgia. Its Level 3 NICU features multidisciplinary support for 42 NICU/ ventilator beds and 27 intermediate care nursery beds.

Located in Atlanta at the intersection of Interstate 85 and North Druid Hills Road, this 260,000-square-foot medical office building brings complex care specialists, modern technology and advanced research for outpatient pediatric care all under one roof. Opened in July 2018, it is the primary location for most subspecialty clinics.
