Why CHLA

Every aspect of our hospital is designed with the care of children in mind. This means that elements of our care, including devices and supplies, are all just the right size for the care of your child, but it also means that we have actively planned and designed for the integration of family members and loved ones as part of a child's recovery.

From baby-sized blood pressure cuffs and diapers for preemies, to our special brand of family-centered care, our hospital is just the right size for the care of your infant, child or adolescent. Natural light, a special universally-accessible playground and gardens are all designed to promote the health and healing of patients.  

Playground

What better way to symbolize that this is a hospital for children than having a play area featured prominently at the entrance!

Electrical outlets suitable for intravenous poles have been integrated throughout the garden so that all children who are able to enjoy the garden are able to do so.

Staff often take their lunch outdoors to enjoy the bright Los Angeles sunshine, or enjoy a quick break with their fellow colleagues outside before attending to their next patient.
