Children's Hospital Los Angeles provides a welcoming environment for patients and their families.
Lobby & Information Desk
Friendly volunteers greet you when you enter our child-friendly lobby. The lobby design was donated by Disney Imagineers and incorporates natural light, fun play areas, and access to our gardens.
Everyone at our hospital has the sensitivity, compassion, and medical expertise to work with children. It is not uncommon for the faces of our patients to brighten upon seeing that their favorite nurse or doctor has entered the room. In addition, we offer many supportive services designed to alleviate the stress of hospitalization both for our patients, and for their family members. We invite you to explore these programs online.

The Jane Vruwink Palmer Healing and Play Garden is about a third of an acre and includes the Simms/Mann Family Foundation Playground, a universally accessible playground featuring a play structure, an interactive activity wall, a sensory ocean wall, sound play with musical instruments and playful bronze sculptures.
