For more than half a century, UCLA Health has provided the best in healthcare and the latest in medical technology to the people of Los Angeles and throughout the world.
Comprised of Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, UCLA Medical Center, Santa Monica, Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital at UCLA, UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital, and the UCLA Medical Group with its wide-reaching system of primary-care and specialty-care offices throughout the region, UCLA Health is among the most comprehensive and advanced healthcare systems in the world.
Our physicians are world leaders in the diagnosis and treatment of complex illnesses, and our hospitals are among the best in the country. Consistently ranked one of the top five hospitals in the nation and the best in the western United States by U.S. News & World Report, UCLA Health is at the cutting edge of biomedical research, and our doctors and scientists are leaders in performing pioneering work across an astounding range of disciplines, from organ transplantation and cardiac surgery to neurosurgery and cancer treatment, and bringing the latest discoveries to virtually every field of medicine.
Our mission is to deliver leading-edge patient care, research, and education.
Our vision is to heal humankind, one patient at a time, by improving health, alleviating suffering and delivering acts of kindness.
And as an academic medical center, we are able to offer our patients the latest technologies as well as access to potentially life-saving new therapies and leading-edge clinical trials. With a comprehensive array of research and clinical centers, addressing topics from stem cell biology, AIDS, gene therapy, neurosciences, women's health and geriatrics, UCLA continues to define what an academic medical center can be. UCLA Health's commitment to patient care, research and education means that our patients benefit from the latest diagnostic and treatment techniques in virtually every area of medicine.
And we are a committed community partner. In fact, more than 70 percent of our medical students and some 200 faculty participate in community health programs each year. Some of those programs include training Los Angeles firefighters and paramedics to treat stroke victims on-site; and addressing a multitude of child health and welfare issues at the Center for Healthier Children, Families and Communities.
