Children have special needs that are different from adults. They need unique medical care made just for them while they are still growing. Hospitals can be frightening places for kids, and the doctors and nurses at Loma Linda University Children's Hospital understand these fears. To make our little patients feel right at home, we have built a hospital that's not so scary with fun furniture, playrooms, and lots of toys. Here at Children's Hospital, we offer parents the comfort and assurance that their child is receiving the highest level of medical care available. Our medical team has more than a hundred pediatricians, pediatric surgeons, and sub-specialists to treat everything from broken bones to disabilities and life-threatening diseases. In addition to our doctors, we have more than 1,200 nurses, child life specialists, and other staff who are dedicated to the health and healing of children. Together they provide a family-focused environment backed by state-of-the-art care.
