We are a nonprofit, state-of-the-art children’s hospital with a medical staff of more than 550 physicians. In California, we treat more inpatient cases than any pediatric hospital north of San Diego. With 358 licensed beds, Valley Children's Healthcare is one of the largest pediatric healthcare networks in the nation.


We are the first children's hospital west of the Rockies to receive Magnet Nursing designation, the highest nursing benchmark in the world, and we are one of fewer than 10 pediatric intensive care units in the nation to have received the Beacon Award for Critical Care Excellence. We are also accredited by the Joint Commission.


We perform more than 12,000 pediatric surgeries a year and our pediatric and neonatal intensive care units have some of the lowest mortality rates in the country while treating some of the sickest kids. Our Cancer and Blood Diseases Center is a member of the nationally-recognized Children’s Oncology Group, and sees more than 120 new cases a year. Our Willson Heart Center has pioneered pediatric heart care for over 50 years.
