The Foundation for the Children of the Californias is a tri-national collaboration with Canada, the United States, and Mexico, endeavoring to improve the health and nutrition for the children of the US and Mexico border region through the operation and expansion of a model pediatric specialty medical and education complex, located one half a mile into Baja California, Mexico.
The Foundation was formed in response to an urgent need for a pediatric medical center in Northwestern Mexico. Concerned pediatric professionals joined forces with civic, business, and academic leaders from Mexico, Canada and the United States in an effort to fill this void.
According to Mexican law, this project is legally classified as one of the very few “private non-profit” institutions in Mexico.
The pediatric complex, “Hospital Infantil de las Californias”, offers outpatient services in 26 specialties and services (including day surgery, dental, ophthalmology, orthopedics, physical therapy, etc.) in a 22,000 square foot facility (soon to be expanded). Only 30% of its staff is paid and no child is turned away for inability to pay.
