Helping Children to Heal

Our PCC and PICU are designed to meet the medical and emotional needs of children. Patient rooms in these units feature a child-friendly theme, as well as a plasma television and recliner for parents who wish to remain at their child's bedside. Our playroom is stocked with computers, books, easels, puzzles, board games, and video games, allowing the children in our care to be kids as well as patients.

At Valley Presbyterian Hospital, families play an important role in the emotional and physical recovery of their children. To support this role, physicians and staff strive to make parents and family members feel comfortable and included in their child's care while in our hospital.

Equipped to Provide Emergency Care

Valley Presbyterian Hospital has been approved by the County of Los Angeles as an Emergency Department Approved for Pediatrics (EDAP). This designation is based on the qualifications of our staff, quality of care, equipment and established treatment procedures. Specialized pediatric teams, including on-call pediatric surgeons and anesthesiologists are available to diagnose and direct children to the care they urgently need.
