California’s eight freestanding children’s hospitals, their clinics and affiliated physicians are the backbone of pediatric care in California.
California’s children's hospitals are staffed and equipped to see children at every stage of acuity across the spectrum of disease and injury, treating everything from common earaches and asthma attacks to pediatric organ transplants, cardiac surgery and cancer. They protect and extend children’s lives through outstanding patient care and safety, internationally respected pediatric research, and training for the pediatricians of tomorrow.
All children require health care that focuses on their unique needs and involves their parents from start to finish. Children with special health care needs are particularly in need of care provided in places designed exclusively for kids. Children’s hospitals provide care that keeps kids healthy and in school, preparing them for successful, productive adult lives. Learn more about our members here:
