Children's Hospital Los Angeles
Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) is a nonprofit institution that provides paediatric health care and helps our patients more than half a million times 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 today our medical experts offer more than 350 paediatric specialty programs and services to meet the needs of our patients.
CHLA is a provider of more than $316.2 million in community benefits annually to children and families. As the first paediatric hospital in Southern 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.
