Children's Hospital's dedication to our community also extends beyond the medical services we provide. In fulfilling our mission, Children's Hospital is involved in community outreach projects throughout East Tennessee and our 16-county service area to provide services, support, and education in a variety of ways.

Our community outreach programs include donor-funded classes that teach children the skills they need to live healthy lives, perform life-saving CPR, or to babysit safely. We also provide injury-prevention equipment like bicycle helmets and car seats and car seat inspections for free to our community.
