Anonymous donor gives $25M to Children's Hospital of Los Angeles

An anonymous donor has given $25 million to Children's Hospital of Los Angeles to expand its neurological and interventional radiology resources, hospital officials announced July 17.

The money will partially go toward establishing a new multidisciplinary neurological institute outpatient center, where neurologists, neurosurgeons, developmental pediatricians, geneticists, nurses, psychiatrists, social workers and other professionals will work under one roof.

The center will have five patient exam rooms, five electroencephalogram rooms, four consultation rooms, two nurses' stations and a dedicated patient playroom, according to the hospital. It will serve patients with neurological conditions, including brain tumors, epilepsy, neuromuscular disorders, craniofacial issues and strokes.

Hospital officials said the $25 million gift will also be used to buy new technology and revamp current diagnostic and treatment space. 

"This truly transformative gift comes at a time when demand is growing quickly — particularly among underserved children in Southern California — both for pediatric neurological care as well as interventional radiology's broad range of minimally invasive procedures," Children's Hospital of Los Angeles President and CEO Paul S. Viviano said in a news release. "I am beyond grateful for the generosity of this gift, one of the largest single donations in the hospital's history, and one that invests in healthier futures for the infants, children and youth we serve."
