The Virginia Kluge Children's Rehabilitation Center, also known as KCRC, is a part of the UVA health system that is dedicated to children with special needs.[1] It was founded in 1957.[2]

It specializes in caring for children that need specific therapy or rehabilitation after an injury, accident or surgery or have a chronic illness such as diabetes or cystic fibrosis.[1] Many families go to KCRC to diagnose why their child is having difficulties walking, talking, learning or eating, or is experiencing behavior problems.[1]

The KCRC is in the process of closing its operations.[2] Most of the facility's activities will be absorbed by other UVA medical centers.[2] However, in-patient services for children under 15 will be discontinued.[2]
