Even if you and your children don't need care right now, you'll feel more confident if you know that your healthcare insurance plan allows you bring your child to the only East Bay hospital that's 100% focused on kids
: UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland. In this period of open enrollment, we encourage you to consider your options and determine whether or not you're getting everything you need from your current insurance provider.
If you're not sure about your current plan, scan the list of insurance plans we contract with. If your plan isn't among them, consider this: at the average general hospital, only 5% of the patients are children. Those hospitals are giving most of their attention and resources to caring for adults. That's not the case at Children's Hospital Oakland. Here we have fellowship-trained pediatric specialists and subspecialists at every turn, as well as pediatrics-trained nurses, radiologists, anesthesiologists, surgical techs, Child Life specialists—even art therapists and school teachers.
As Northern California's only independent children's hospital, we take pride in focusing all our staff, all our technology, and all our resources on the advanced treatment of the children in our care.
Ask your pediatrician about Children's Hospital Oakland, and learn more about us on this website.
