UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital cares for the physical and emotional well-being of children, from newborns to young adults. With a dedicated entrance from Gayley Avenue, UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital is located on the third and fifth floors of Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. UCLA's facilities are designed to serve the most critically ill children with sophisticated, compassionate care in an environment that is both welcoming and healing to children and their families. In 1998, Mattel Children's Foundation, a philanthropic arm of Mattel, Inc., pledged $25 million toward construction of the hospital. In 2017, Mattel, Inc. made a $50-million gift to The UCLA Foundation to benefit children’s health. With Mattel’s support, UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital will expand pediatric services locally; broaden its global presence to enhance and improve the health of children worldwide; and promote the global sharing of UCLA Health’s best practices and research. Our pediatricians offer world-class patient care using a family-centered care model. This multidisciplinary approach to the planning, delivery and evaluation of pediatric patients results in the appropriate allocation of resources, collaborative communication, greater patient and family satisfaction and better outcomes. Understanding that "children are not small adults," we pay utmost attention to the social and emotional needs of hospitalized children and their families. Specialists from UCLA's acclaimed Chase Child Life program help ease the fear and anxiety associated with hospitalization. They communicate accurate and age-appropriate information, identifying potential stressors and teach coping strategies to patients and family members. Therapeutic interventions, such as art, music and dance/movement help reduce anxiety and support physical development in young patients. The Mattel Children’s Unit at UCLA Santa Monica Medical Center includes a 25-bed Pediatric Unit—with 4 beds dedicated to acutely ill children—and a 16-bassinet high-tech, high-touch Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital's mission is to provide state-of-the art treatment for children in a compassionate atmosphere, as well as conduct research that improves the understanding and treatment of pediatric diseases and to train the next generation of leaders in pediatrics.
