Children's Hospital Los Angeles, acknowledged for its leadership in pediatric and adolescent health, has evolved into one of the world’s finest pediatric academic medical centers, due in large part to its association with Keck Medicine of the University of Southern California for three-quarters of a century.

The children and families of Greater Los Angeles benefit because these two great institutions share a common mission to improve the health and well-being of the children in our community. 

Although separately governed, there is active cooperation and collaboration as the leaders of both institutions realize that the next wave of medical advances will require the talents of traditional medicine, along with mathematics, engineering, information technology and many other disciplines. 

Both organizations work together on innovative programs, with benefits that reach throughout this community and well beyond.  In the meantime, our affiliation with Keck Medicine has resulted in Children's Hospital Los Angeles being a premier teaching hospital, training the future caregivers for the children of tomorrow.
