CHLA Care Network

The Children's Hospital Los Angeles Care Network is a physician-led association that supports the health of children in the Los Angeles region by organizing primary care pediatricians and pediatric specialists in the delivery of innovative, seamless care for infants, children and young adults.

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

About the Network

The Care 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)
  2. Improve the health of populations
  3. Reduce the per capita cost of care

Member Selection

Hospital and physician members are selected based on a shared commitment to:

  • Deliver high-quality health care for children

Care Network operations are informed by three committees chaired by individuals designated by the Board of Managers.
