Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters (CHKD), located in Norfolk, Virginia, is the only freestanding children's hospital in Virginia and the home to one of the nation's best pediatric residency programs.
In 1896, a group of community-spirited women formed the Norfolk City Union of The King’s Daughters to provide medical care for indigent mothers and their children. They established a free clinic and visiting nurse service and in 1961 built The King’s Daughters’ Children’s Hospital, with 88 beds and a variety of services. In 1979, the name was changed to Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters.
The CHKD Health System operates primary care pediatric practices, surgical practices, multi-service Health Centers and satellite offices throughout its service region.
