100% of what we do is for our kids.
For nearly 100 years, UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland has been delivering exceptional medical care to children from all regions of California. Parents choose Benioff Children's Hospital because we have the best trained and most experienced specialists and because of the genuine passion with which we treat every child.
You can expect a better outcome when your treatment team includes sub-specialty, fellowship-trained physicians covering over 30 pediatric specialties. We care for tens of thousands of children each year. This means more experience, which means quality care and better outcomes.
Care from a comprehensive team of highly trained board-certified pediatric specialists, nurses, technicians, and therapists is vital to ensure the right treatment from the start. This is the work we dedicate our lives to.
Our doctors know that children can't be treated as small adults. All our equipment is kid-sized, and we know the protocols that work best for children. They benefit from lower doses of radiation and anesthesia administered by pediatric specialists who stay abreast of the most innovative treatments.
Our trauma center in Oakland is an ACS verified Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center (one of only five in California) and is dedicated exclusively to caring for children. We are one of a few hospitals with the specialized staff and facilities able to treat rare illnesses and health problems in children.
