Children’s Hospital & Research Center Oakland is the only independent children’s hospital in Northern California. That’s why it’s able to focus all its attention and all its people on caring for children. Children’s Hospital Oakland, the oldest pediatric medical center between Los Angeles and Seattle, has provided exceptional medical care for children in the region and beyond for 95 years. In 1912, Mabel Weed and Bertha Wright, a nurse, founded Children’s Hospital, then called the “Baby Hospital.” Its first home was the stable of the old McElrath mansion. Today, with 191 licensed beds, Children’s Hospital’s medical center offers outstanding patient care, and also supports nationally recognized pediatric teaching and research. Children’s Hospital has expanded its role over the years. From modest beginnings it’s grown, not just into a medical “safety net” for East Bay children, but also into a regional pediatric medical center with specialized staff and facilities able to treat rare illnesses and health problems. Because full-service hospitals just for children are extremely specialized, few communities can support one. Children’s is proud to be one of only 45 freestanding children’s hospitals in the nation, not connected to a university or other institution. Like the others, Children’s Hospital Oakland recognizes that children’s medical needs are vastly different from those of adults. That’s why Children’s Hospital designs its healthcare especially for children. At Children’s Hospital Oakland we don’t measure things by adult standards and divide by half. As the only independent children’s hospital in the Bay Area, we give kids our undivided attention.
