The end of a year is a good time for reflection. In 2019 we learned how to dance better, how we should act on a golf course, and that sometimes it’s good to flip out. While we look forward to 2020, today is the end of a decade of major changes at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

In 2010, Children’s Hospital’s 460,000-square-foot Marion and John E. Anderson Pavilion is completed. The hospital is named one of eight children’s hospitals in the nation — and the only on the West Coast — ranked in all 10 pediatric specialties by U.S. News & World Report, earning the facility a seat on the national Honor Roll of children’s hospital by the magazine.

Children’s Hospital Los Angeles also unveils the new butterfly logo and tagline, and officially adds the long-lost apostrophe back into the hospital’s title. Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is one of just seven children’s hospitals to be designated a “Top Hospital” for 2010 by The Leapfrog Group, and the only one in the western United States.
