Overview

White Memorial Medical Center provides general and advanced specialty care for children from birth through adolescence. We specialize in pediatric cardiology, neurology, surgery, diabetes, asthma, allergies and ophthalmology, as well as general pediatrics.

The hospital has one of the area's only Pediatric Intensive Care units, with state-of-the-art equipment, as well as one of the region’s only Level III Neo-Natal Intensive Care Units (NICU) for severely sick or premature babies. Many hospitals in the region refer pediatric patients who need specialty pediatric care to White Memorial for advanced treatments.

White Memorial also provides a specialized Cleft Palate Program, available to all children, including those with great financial need.

Our sophisticated treatments and state-of-the-art equipment are combined with a warm, caring atmosphere and friendly, experienced staff (many of whom speak Spanish). The 27-bed inpatient Pediatrics Unit features a warm, colorful playroom for children who are hospitalized and accommodations for a parent to sleep overnight in their child's room.

Our experienced physicians and specialists are available 24 hours a day. In fact, our Emergency Room staff is specially certified to treat children's emergencies.

In addition, White Memorial offers free transportation (within a five-mile radius).

We welcome patients with all types of Medi-Cal and Medi-Cal managed care.
