CHLA Health Network

The CHLA Health Network is the only physician-led association in Los Angeles County that supports the health of children in the Los Angeles basin by organizing primary care pediatricians and pediatric specialists in the delivery of innovative, seamless care for infants, children and young adults.

Care provided by CHLA Health Network physicians encompasses that provided in community, primary, secondary, tertiary and quaternary care settings.

About the Network

The CHLA Health Network is designed to build a system of care for children and youth aligned with the triple aim of health care reform.

  1. Improve the patient experience of care (including quality and satisfaction)
