UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital cares for the physical and emotional well-being of children, from newborns to young adults. With a dedicated entrance from Gayley Avenue, UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital is located on the third and fifth floors of Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. UCLA's facilities are designed to serve the most critically ill children with sophisticated, compassionate care in an environment that is both welcoming and healing to children and their families. In 1998, Mattel Children's Foundation, a philanthropic arm of Mattel, Inc., pledged $25 million toward construction of the hospital. With Mattel's continued support, UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital is expanding pediatric services locally; broadening its global presence to enhance and improve the health of children worldwide; and promoting the global sharing of UCLA Health’s best practices and research. In total, Mattel has 131 inpatient beds, which includes 44 beds in the pediatric unit, 22 beds in the neonatal ICU, 18 beds in the pediatric ICU, and 6 beds in the pediatric cardiac ICU. Annually, Mattel Children’s Hospital serves more than 6,000 inpatients and 100,000 outpatients through an entire range of primary and sub-specialty care for infants, children, and adolescents. The Mattel Children’s Unit at UCLA Medical Center, Santa Monica, includes a 25-bed pediatric unit and a 16-bassinet Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Each nursing unit has its own minor procedure room so young patients can undergo certain treatments away from their sleeping area to avoid associating pain or distress with their own room.
