Why Le Bonheur

Where Every Child Matters.

Anything that matters to children, matters to us. Everything we do gives each child we serve at Le Bonheur a chance to enjoy a healthier and safer childhood.

Recognized among the nation’s “Best Children’s Hospitals” by U.S. News & World Report for 11 consecutive years, Le Bonheur is always on the side of children, advocating on their behalf so we can provide them with the care they need. We are a Magnet-designated facility, the ultimate credential for high-quality patient care. And The Leapfrog Group named Le Bonheur Children's a Top Children's Hospital in 2017 -- one of the most competitive honors hospitals can receive when it comes to safe patient care.

From the ordinary bumps and sniffles of childhood to its most life-altering extremes, Le Bonheur Children’s is prepared for whatever a child’s life might throw at us. We are never surprised by what kids bring with them when they come through our doors.

It’s been that way since we opened in 1952. We’ve mattered to children every day since.
