Top Hospital or Medical Center of the Year HONOREE: Children’s Hospital Los Angeles

Founded in 1901, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is a pediatric academic medical center built around its mission of creating hope and building healthier futures for children. More than 120 years later, the organization is fulfilling that mission by offering transformative compassionate care, educating tomorrow’s healthcare professionals and making life-changing discoveries. 

The hospital is heralded as leader among children’s hospitals nationally and regionally, led by the more than 6,400 team members and 800 medical staff who work collectively to perform nearly 17,000 surgeries and see more than 660,000 patient visits each year. But the numbers don’t tell the entire story. The story is told in the compassionate and life-changing care that is effected in every patient and for every family as part of their own healthcare journey, and their ability to return home to their community, more whole than before. 

Providing renowned, world-class clinical care, supporting leading-edge research and managing one of the most successful pediatric training programs in the country – all while being the pediatric safety net hospital for the entire region – is the result of a dedicated, highly-trained workforce with a truly unique institutional commitment – to do everything possible for children. Focused and determined efforts during a grueling period resulted in the institution doing even more than ever for the health of children, for the community and for education and innovation in medicine overall. 

Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is committed to setting and resetting the standards of pediatrics – never giving up in the relentless pursuit of “why” to uncover knowledge today that will inform the lifechanging innovations of tomorrow.
