Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is ranked among the top hospitals in the nation for endocrinology and diabetes care on the U.S. News & World Report Best Children's Hospitals List. The Division of Endocrinology, part of the Center for Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism, provides clinical care and conducts research on childhood diabetes, growth, weight management, general endocrinology and bone metabolism.

Our inspiration for the work we do is the children we treat. Our team of professionals works on multiple fronts to advance early intervention, education and scientific investigation to continue to give children hope so they can achieve their dreams.

The center is pioneering new tools, treatments and lifestyle-changing clinical programs. We are at the forefront of regional, national and international efforts to bring about healthier lives for children.
