Pediatrics Department

At Cedars-Sinai, 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 access to a team that works together flawlessly, with one goal in mind: healing children as quickly and happily as possible.

From cardiology to urology, our doctors are fellowship trained in their pediatric specialty and have extensive experience providing care from conception to age 18. The Maxine Dunitz Children's Health Center provides clinical care tailored to the needs of children and their families. We care for the whole family --- and spend time answering  questions, listening and taking the time to make treatment options clear and understandable. It's why we're known for our excellence in patient care and why parents throughout Los Angeles choose us to care for their family.
