About Us

Valley Children's Healthcare began as the vision of five civic-minded women who saw the need for a dedicated pediatric hospital in Central California. For more than 65 years, Valley Children's Healthcare has grown from a 42-bed hospital in 1952 to a 358-bed, nationally respected pediatric healthcare network today.

With more than 575 physicians and 3,400 staff, Valley Children’s delivers high-quality, comprehensive care to more than 1.3 million children in our 12-county service area. Read about what makes us different, the mission that drives us and the history that's made us who we are today.
