At Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, we bring the same extraordinary dedication, skill and expertise of our adult care to children.
But when a child is sick or injured, it's not enough for a hospital to have the most qualified doctors and advanced technologies. It's not enough to just have caring nurses and kind doctors in a kid-friendly, non-threatening environment.
You need to have it all.
Everything and everyone should work together flawlessly, with one goal in mind: Cedars-Sinai's Pediatric Department is dedicated to healing kids as quickly and happily as possible.
We have expertise that ranges from pediatric general surgery to neurosurgery, from cardiology to neonatology, and from oncology to medical genetics. Not only are our doctors trained in their pediatric medicine specialty, they also have extensive experience providing care from conception up to age 18. From surgeon to anesthesiologist, from radiologist to nurse, each member of the Cedars-Sinai team is a specialist who understands children and their needs.
The Maxine Dunitz Children's Health Center provides clinical care tailored to the needs of children and their families. A wide range of pediatric specialties and support services are available to meet the healthcare needs of children in both clinical and hospital settings.
We treat the entire family with care.
We answer everyone's questions, listen and help make the recommended treatment clear and understandable. And referring doctors become an integral part of this "family" as well. The primary care doctor is in charge while the patient is in the hospital, or is kept in consultation through constant updates and communication.
An academic medical center known around the world.
Cedars-Sinai has a world-renowned faculty and an extensive, highly competitive pediatric training program for medical students, interns, residents and fellows. All full-time doctors on the Cedars-Sinai Department of Pediatrics staff have faculty appointments at Southern California medical schools.
In addition, Cedars-Sinai received the national Magnet Hospital Recognition Award for nursing excellence by the American Nurses Credentialling Center. Moreover, our healthcare professionals participate in the latest, most advanced treatment protocols in the world.
Your child means everything to you. And to us as well.
We encourage you to get the very best care for your child. That means choosing a medical center that can provide you with the latest technology and the most advanced ways of treating and preventing disease - all in a caring, nurturing environment.
