Making a Difference
Since its inception, Mattel Party on the Pier has provided unrestricted funding to launch high-priority programs that benefit children being treated at UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital and around the world. Recent support has funded Chase Child Life specialist education; intestinal rehabilitation for pediatric surgery patients; support for pediatric sarcoma and leukemia programs in the Division of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology; and our Pediatric Global Scholars Program, which funds third-year pediatric residents who train globally.
As a vital part of UCLA Health, UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital is a place where state-of-the-art care is delivered in a compassionate, family-centered atmosphere. Our general pediatricians work alongside leading specialists and subspecialists, and our physician-scientists discover new treatments and innovations that transform pediatric healthcare. The vision of this extraordinary team and the generosity of our dedicated philanthropic partners help ensure a brighter tomorrow for all children.
