For more than five decades, the Children's Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases has been leading the fight against cancer and blood diseases through innovative clinical and research programs, academic excellence and global leadership.
Each day, the Center treats the most complex and rare conditions. Because of our expertise, families come here from all over Southern California, the United States and the world.
We provide care for more than 1,100 new patients each year and handle approximately 25,000 outpatient visits annually. Our pediatric Hematology and Oncology divisions are among the largest of their kind in the western U.S., serving as the leading referral centers in the region.
Children’s Hospital Los Angeles offers patients access to the latest treatment options being tested in clinical trials through our participation in national and international research consortia, including Children's Oncology Group (COG). We are the only hospital in the nation to serve as the headquarters for three of these multicenter consortia.
Our bench-to-bedside approach to problem-solving integrates scientific and clinical expertise – taking the best ideas from the laboratory to the patient in the form of promising new treatments.
