Grow With Us


More than 125 years ago, The King’s Daughters, a local women’s service organization, hired a nurse to care for the sick in Norfolk’s poorest neighborhoods. That initiative, and their generous spirit, grew into what is now Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters, a comprehensive health system dedicated exclusively to children.

At CHKD, each of our more than 3,500 employees embody that same spirit today – working together to bring Health, Healing, and Hope to All Children. The CHKD family is bound by strength and compassion to deliver the best possible care to every family that needs us.

Teamwork is deeply ingrained in everything we do. We strive to create a work environment where our employees feel empowered, and they are provided opportunities to enhance their skills and advance their careers. As a comprehensive pediatric health system with more than 40 locations, collaborative care and a multidisciplinary approach are of great importance.

If you’re looking for a career you can be proud of, work that fulfills your spirit as well as your intellect, and a place to grow and prosper, CHKD could be that place for you.
