Founded in 1952, Le Bonheur Children's Hospital is an integral part of the Methodist Healthcare Family and a training site for many University of Tennessee Health Science Center residencies/fellowships. A new $340-million hospital building was built in December 2010 to accommodate the over 100,000 patients seen each year.

Named one of the nation's "Best Children's Hospitals" by U.S. News & World Report, Le Bonheur is the only Level 1 pediatric trauma center in the Mid-South.  Its neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) provides the highest level of care for the region's critically ill newborns.

Le Bonheur Children's Hospital is our home for our inpatient pediatric neurology service, outpatient pediatric neurology clinic, and continuity clinic.

Inpatient Pediatric Neurology Service

The inpatient pediatric neurology service exposes our residents to a wide array of pediatric neurologic disorders in the hospital setting, preparing our trainees for either academic or private future practice to function independently and comfortably as an attending in Pediatric Neurology.

This hospital includes a 20 bed PICU, a 10 bed Cardiovascular ICU, and 21 bed intermediate care unit.  We also have a dedicated 6 bed Neurosurgical ICU for care of patients following brain tumor, epilepsy, and spine surgeries. 

Outpatient Pediatric Neurology Clinic

The outpatient pediatric neurology clinic rotations expose our residents to the varied presentations of neurologic disease in the outpatient setting. 

Our neurology clinic is located on the first floor of the new 255 bed hospital and we have 20 outpatient exam rooms, as well as four more rooms dedicated to our pediatric neuro-ophthalmology clinic for complete ophthalmologic examinations.  EEG, high-density EEG, EMG, TMS and MEG services are part of the clinic as well.

We have a wonderful team of dedicated nurses and clinic staff including an outpatient social worker that care for our patients.  There are dedicated computer workstations for doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses, social work and clinic staff.

Continuity Clinic

Residents will have a half day continuity clinic throughout their entire three years of training in pediatric neurology. They will have the opportunity to work with various attendings with different specialty interests throughout their three years.

A typical day will include several patients with varied neurological disorders across the full range of pathologies in pediatric neurology.
