Founded in 1901, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) is the oldest freestanding pediatric hospital in California and the first and largest in Southern California. CHLA serves as a major regional referral center for children who require life-saving acute care. Each year, the hospital provides more than 111,000 children with pediatric healthcare in a setting designed just for their needs.

With a history of pioneering new and minimally invasive techniques to help children heal faster, our physicians are renowned as world leaders in pediatric specialty medicine for their clinical, educational, and research programs alike.
