The Mission of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is:
We create hope and build healthier futures.
Founded in 1901, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is one of the nation’s top children’s hospitals and is acknowledged worldwide for its leadership in pediatric and adolescent health. Children’s Hospital is one of only eleven in the nation – and the only one in California – named to the national Honor Roll of children’s hospitals in the 2011 US News & World Report rankings for clinical excellence. In 2011, the hospital opened the new $636 million, 317-bed state-of-the-art Marion and John E. Anderson Pavilion, which further expanded services and capabilities at its main campus on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, California, as well as increased the ability to provide family-centered care to residents throughout the region.
Children’s Hospital Los Angeles has been named the best children’s hospital in California and among the best in the nation for clinical excellence with its selection to the prestigious US News & World Report Honor Roll. Children’s Hospital is home to The Saban Research Institute, one of the largest and most productive pediatric research facilities in the United States. The hospital is also one of America’s premier teaching hospitals through its affiliation since 1932 with the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California.
