If a child needs hospital care, a children’s hospital is the best choice. Children and adults are different and so are their health care needs. Many children’s illnesses are rarely seen in adults or affect kids differently. That’s why children need access to Miller Children’s & Women's Hospital
Long Beach — a hospital dedicated exclusively to the quality and compassionate care of kids.
Only five percent of all hospitals across the nation are children’s hospitals. As regional centers for children's health, each children's hospital fills the unique health care needs of infants, children and teens from different communities. Children’s hospitals are at the forefront of research, teaching, education and advocacy for children across the nation by providing specialized care to treat children of all ages, from newborns to young adults, with conditions ranging from common to complex. Physicians and health care teams at children’s hospitals understand children’s specific needs and partner with parents in the decision making and treatment process.
If you've ever been inside one, you know children's hospitals are special places where everything is
kid-sized and child friendly, and even the sickest children have the hope of becoming healthy once again. Even healthy children and their families benefit from Miller Children’s healing touch. By pioneering new vaccines and treatments, training many pediatricians and pediatric specialists and using the most sophisticated technology fit just for kids, children’s hospitals help all children grow up healthy.
