Welcome to Children's Hospital Los Angeles Medical Group. The 500 physician members of our group provide health education, prevention and clinical services to children and adolescents needing simple intervention, all the way up to those suffering from a wide range of acute injuries and chronic diseases in more than 30 pediatric specialties. We are the physicians that lead the multi-disciplinary clinical team at the world-renowned Children's Hospital Los Angeles located in the heart of Hollywood, California. Many of our physicians are also full-time faculty members at the Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California.
At Children's Hospital Los Angeles, our medical group provides services in the Departments of Pediatrics, Surgery, Anesthesia/Critical Care Medicine, Radiology and Pathology. We provide leadership and care in the hospital's Centers of Excellence, including the Children's Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases; the Heart Institute; the Center for Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism; the Children's Orthopedic Center; the Institute for Maternal-Fetal Health and the Vision Center.
Nearly 25% of our physicians are routinely recognized in “Best Doctors in America” and “America’s Top Doctors”. We also provide leadership, education and training to other pediatric specialists throughout the country through our participation on a variety of national medical boards and professional associations. You will find details of some of this work in the biographies provided for each of our physicians in our website. Our group is an academic medical group, which means that in addition to providing direct care to patients, we also teach medical students, residents, and fellows; and we conduct basic, clinical and translational research (as we search for cures today to prevent future suffering). Our faculty members receive significant support from the National Institutes of Health at a level that places our group among the top 10 research centers nationally, and one of the top 3 research centers on the West Coast.
We want to be your doctor of choice, your preferred provider of the latest breakthroughs in teaching and research, and the source of trusted information for families and the general public. We believe that you will find our website informative and easy to use. Please contact us if you have any questions, or would like to see one of our specialists.
