Dr. Blakey grew up in North Carolina and spent eight years in the United States Navy. During that time, Dr. Blakey completed his internship in family medicine and then his residency in anesthesiology.

He realized early on in his residency that he preferred working with kids versus adults and soon after leaving the Navy decided to join the CHKD family, where he acted as the director of pediatric anesthesia for 14 years. He’s been with CHKD ever since.

A Note From Dr. Blakey

"What I didn't appreciate until starting at CHKD was the overarching importance to pediatric healthcare of having a facility that is specifically devoted to the care of children. Pediatric hospitals, including CHKD, have their own unique personality and are much more patient-centered. It's the one single thing that makes CHKD such a great place to practice."
