The Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center was established through the generosity of Richard and Judy Childress.

Brenner Children's Hospital at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center received Level I Pediatric Trauma Center status in April 2011 from the Verification Review Committee (VRC), an ad hoc committee of the Committee on Trauma (COT) of the American College of Surgeons (ACS). Brenner Children's Hospital is the first children's hospital in North Carolina to receive this prestigious designation.

The Childress Institute provided support and direction to the effort to gain Level 1 status as a pediatric trauma center.
