The Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA is part of the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.  The UCLA Medical Center has been rated as one of the top five medical institutions in the United States by US News and World Report 2011. The Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA has been a leading Neonatal Center in Southern California, a major referral center for high risk mothers and neonates.

With the opening of the Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA within the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, the NICU is a 32 bed unit (22 ICU beds and 10 intermediate beds http://youtu.be/dTkTbTqPlBE), all of which are level III beds.  Neonatology faculty and fellows are responsible for in-born and out-born babies requiring tertiary level care derived from the Greater Los Angeles area and the surrounding regions.  There is a congenital cardiac program on-site; an ECMO program; and a Head/Body Cooling Program in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. There is considerable depth in all the Pediatric Medical and Surgical Subspecialties that are all available on site. A widely respected infertility and fetal diagnostic program exists at UCLA.
