Welcome to the Pediatrics Unit at UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital, located on the 3rd and 5th floors, with private and semi-private rooms.
We understand that this is a very difficult time for both you and your child. Rest assured that all of your child's medical needs will be met by our staff who will be working with you towards a successful recovery. Please remember to take care of yourself.
We understand that when children are in our unit, they need their families close by for support, comfort and encouragement. That's why parents/legal guardians are always welcome.
When you need to leave your child, feel free to call us at any time to check his or her progress at 310-267-7530 on 5W or 310-267-7320 on 3 Peds. We are here to work as a team with you. Please let us know if you have any questions.
Your child will need to wear an ID band at all times to help staff properly identify the patient. If your child has any allergies, he or she will also need to wear a red allergy band to alert staff of these allergies. This is very important for your child's safety.
