California’s Hospitals  Pediatric Beds

Shrinking services: Pediatric beds in California

California hospitals lost more than 800 in-patient beds for children in the last decade, as facilities converted the beds to other uses or closed down entirely.

In the north, the losses have forced many families to travel hundreds of miles for specialty care. In Southern California, where the pediatric population grew the most, more children are competing for fewer beds.

Use the map below to examine where beds have been lost in relation to where children live in Southern California. Enter an address in The Times statewide database on the right (e.g. 200 N. Spring St. Los Angeles or Glendale or 90210) to see whether hospitals close to you serve children.
