Recognized among the nation’s “Best Children’s Hospitals” by U.S. News & World Report for 11 consecutive years, Le Bonheur is always on the side of children, advocating on their behalf so we can provide them with the care they need.

We know that keeping kids closer to home is always the best option, and that’s why we have expanded specialized pediatric services in the region.

From the ordinary bumps and sniffles of childhood to its most life-altering extremes, Le Bonheur Children’s is prepared for whatever a child’s life might throw at us. We are never surprised by what kids bring with them when they come through our doors.

It’s been that way since we opened in 1952. We’ve mattered to children every day since.

Community Services

Le Bonheur on the Move (LOM) is a mobile medical unit that travels in rural West Tennessee to provide affordable, accessible healthcare services for children. This is accomplished by partnering with school systems who have identified a need for their children. LOM supports the efforts of primary care providers by identifying the health care needs of children, offering preventative health services and education, and linking children to appropriate medical and/or behavioral health services. LOM also refers children who have or are at risk for developing a chronic condition to RN Health Education. Registered Nurse Health Educators provide education about healthy living and make referrals to primary care or specialists when needed.

Le Bonheur Community Outreach’s Behavioral Health Care Navigation is a school-based program currently being piloted in Bells Elementary and Crockett County Elementary Schools. The goal of this program is to identify the social, emotional, and behavioral needs of children, offer interventions to address needs in the home and school environments and link children to appropriate community resources.
