Hollywood Cares for Kids™
Hollywood Cares for Kids™ is a dedicated program at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles for professionals and organizations across the entertainment, music, arts, fashion and digital influencer communities who want to make a difference in the lives of the patients we serve. Whether you’re a star on the screen or a pro behind the scenes, you can turn your passion into action.
Established in 1901 as Southern California’s first hospital dedicated to the care of children, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles has grown alongside the Hollywood community for more than a century. In fact, the institution moved to its current main campus on Sunset and Vermont in 1913, the same year the very first movie was filmed right down the street in Hollywood.
Today, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is one the country’s largest and most renowned pediatric hospitals for kids. With more than 600,000 patient visits conducted annually, the hospital provides specialized, compassionate care and services for everything that can affect a child or adolescent, from broken bones to the rarest diseases; from homelessness to gender non-conformity. We are also a premier teaching hospital and one of the few freestanding pediatric research insitutions using scientific discovery to understand, treat and cure the most devastating childhood disorders.
