The West Coast’s first level I Children’s Surgery Center
In fall 2017 UC Davis Children’s Hospital was re-verified as a level I Children’s Surgery Center by the American College of Surgeons (ACS), the world’s largest organization of surgeons. We remain the first hospital on the West Coast, and one of only a dozen in the nation, to have earned this designation. Level I centers have children’s surgeons in every discipline, with pediatric anesthesiologists and dedicated operating rooms for children available 24 hours a day. They also train future leaders in education and research and participate in community outreach.
