Comprehensive Hematology, Immunology, and Infectious Disease Program (CHIIP)
Immunodeficiency and related immune dysregulated disorders can be complex and difficult to diagnosis and treat in children. That's why we are committed to partnering with you to provide the highest quality care. With the creation of CHIIP, Children's Hospital has extensive capabilities to diagnose and treat some of the most complex Immunodeficiency disorders facing patients.

Our program the first of its kind in the southeast and one of only a handful of centers in the country. The program is led by James Connelly, M.D., a nationally respected hematologist/oncologist who specializes in stem cell transplant for nonmalignant conditions.
Dr. Connelly led a successful pediatric immuno-hematology program that saw more than 300 patients a year. He has performed more than 60 stem cell transplants for non-malignant conditions.
CHIIP is a true collaboration between nationally recognized specialists and research leaders in hematology, oncology, immunology, infectious disease, genetics, and stem cell transplant, ensuring patients receive the most current treatments.
Patients will see multiple doctors during a single clinic visit. This allows for immediate collaboration and real-time management, while saving you from having to make multiple visits. This efficient model allows us to communicate back to you with the most complete and rapid assessment of your child.
Within CHIIP, we care for your children with suspected or diagnosed disorders including:
- Immune deficiencies
- Dysregulated immune disorders
- Bone marrow failure syndromes
- Lymphoproliferative disorders
- Immune mediated cytopenias
- Undiagnosed constellations of symptoms that suggest immune, hematologic, and/or infectious etiologies
