White Memorial has been officially designated as a Pediatric Medical Center

Awards & Recognition

White Memorial has been officially designated as a Pediatric Medical Center, a state certification indicating an advanced level of care for critically ill children transported by ambulance to the hospital. The Los Angeles County Emergency Medical Services Agency approved this designation following a successful review of our pediatric services on March 19.

What our Pediatric Medical Center designation means:

  • WMMC’s Emergency Department is capable of managing complex pediatric emergencies.
  • WMMC has a designated Pediatric Unit and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit licensed by the state Department of Health Services.
  • Physicians with pediatric care and sub-specialty experience, including a pediatric critical care specialist, are available at all times.
  • WMMC provides outreach and educational programs for the community.

The official letter and effective date of designation will be coming shortly. In the interim, please join us in congratulating and thanking our Pediatric Medical Center Taskforce and everyone who made this almost decade-long goal a reality.
