Our mission is to improve healthcare delivery toward all patients with kidney disease by implementing our CORE values of Clinical Excellence, Outreach, Research, and Education.
Our focus is on integrative medicine, with emphasis on prevention and education, so patients can become their own best advocates.
The Nephrology speciality ranked No. 1 in Los Angeles and No. 3 nationally by the U.S. News and World Report.
UCLA Health hospitals in Westwood and Santa Monica ranked No.1 in Los Angeles, No.1 in California and No.6 nationally in the 2019–20 assessment by U.S. News & World Report.
The UCLA living kidney donor program strives to encourage and guide healthy individuals to become living kidney donors.
The active waiting list is 2.8x larger than the supply of donor kidneys, therefore we have dedicated a program to guide willing donors every step of the way.
"Kidney patients from all over the country and the world make their way to Los Angeles every year to attend the popular Kidney Fair at the Beach and show their support for the UCLA CORE Kidney Program. But sometimes, when they can't make it, we go the extra mile to share in the excitement."
