Children's of Alabama is a pediatric health system in Birmingham, Alabama. The system's main hospital is located on the city's Southside, with additional outpatient facilities and primary care centers throughout central Alabama. The addition of the Benjamin Russell Hospital for Children to the main campus created the 'Russell campus', and makes it the third largest children's hospital in the United States.[1] It is home to the University of Alabama at Birmingham's pediatric residency program, giving it some traits of a teaching hospital. The hospital was founded in 1911.[2]
