Patient Care

Leaders in compassionate, multidisciplinary expert care.

The Department of Pediatrics at the Keck School of Medicine of USC provides outstanding, family-centered care for the children of Los Angeles. At our hospital and clinic sites — settings designed to meet children’s needs and put them at ease — we care for more than 100,000 children each year.

Our renowned specialty programs allow us to treat patients with the most complex illnesses, while also reaching out to the community to provide wellness checks and ongoing health services for the underserved.

Our pediatricians primarily offer care at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, with services also provided at LAC+USC Medical Center, Good Samaritan Hospital, Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center, and the clinics of Keck Medicine of USC and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Medical Group.

As one of the region’s top academic medical centers, we have access to the latest, research-based pediatric innovations. We also set a priority on training future pediatricians, and our patients are often cared for by well-supervised medical students, pediatric residents and pediatric fellows in addition to staff physicians, bringing multiple perspectives to the care of each child.

We recognize that parents are the best advocates for their children, and we partner with families to ensure that all needs are met while in our care.
