A Pediatric academic medical center
Children's Hospital Los Angeles is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit institution that provides pediatric health care to more than 111,000 children each year in a setting designed just for their needs. Our history began in 1901 in a small house on the corner of Alpine and Castelar Streets (now Hill St. in Chinatown) and continues today with an urban campus that is home to medical experts who have developed more than 350 pediatric specialty programs and services to meet the needs of our patients.
CHLA is a provider of more than $232.6 million in community benefits annually to children and families. As the oldest freestanding children’s hospital in California, CHLA relies on the generosity of philanthropists in the community to support compassionate patient care, leading-edge education of the caregivers of tomorrow and innovative research efforts that impact children at our hospital and around the world.
