Through the support and generosity of its donors, Miller Children’s & Women’s opened the Cherese Mari Laulhere Children’s Village in early 2021. Thousands of children have since received specialized pediatric care in the Children’s Village, which is the only building of its kind in Los Angeles and Orange Counties to offer a one-stop-shop approach to specialty care for kids.

MISSION STATEMENT
Miller Children’s & Women’s is dedicated to improving the health of children, families and the community through patient care, education and research.

 
SERVICE AREA
Because children’s hospitals are unique, they serve larger geographic regions than adult hospitals. Miller Children’s & Women’s treats more than 8,000 children each year and provides services for more than 65,000 children who require specialized care in the outpatient setting throughout Los Angeles and Orange Counties.

FAST FACTS

• Miller Children’s & Women’s is one of only eight full-service, free-standing children’s hospitals in California, and one of only two in Los Angeles County.
• Miller Children’s & Women’s is the only hospital in Los Angeles and Orange Counties that keep mom and baby together under one roof, which is especially important in high risk or emergent situations. The “Women’s” in the name represents the more than 5,500 women each year who trust Miller Children’s & Women’s to safely deliver their baby.
