About Valley Children's Healthcare

Valley Children's Hospital began as the vision of five young mothers who saw the need for a dedicated pediatric hospital in Central California. Over 60 years later, Valley Children’s Hospital has grown into a 356-bed, regional pediatric medical center on a 50-acre campus offering treatment in over 40 pediatric specialties. Our state-of-the-art, nonprofit children’s hospital is one of the largest pediatric hospitals in the nation. With hundreds of pediatric specialists and other medical professionals trained to address the exclusive healthcare needs of children, Valley Children's provides incredible care to children from Modesto to Bakersfield and from the Sierras to the Central Coast and has established itself as the premier pediatric medical facility in the heart of the Golden State. In December 2014, Valley Children's introduced their healthcare network, which incorporates the hospital, medical foundation, physicians, clinics and satellite facilities throughout Central California. The network, known as Valley Children's Healthcare, will provide a full spectrum of pediatric healthcare services well beyond the hospital's walls.
