Our History

The Anita M. Baldwin Hospital for Babies is founded

Founded on March 22, 1920, as the Anita M. Baldwin Hospital for Babies, our clinic initially occupied three beds on the campus of California Hospital Medical Center.

A Name Change to California Babies’ and Children’s Hospital

By 1945, we had not only opened the first preschool dental clinic in the western United States but were also overseeing 30 inpatient pediatric beds at our own facility and under a new name: California Babies’ and Children’s Hospital.

The Hospital Makes a Move

The facility moves to its present address at 1530 S. Olive Street.

A Gift and a Name Change

We became the Eisner Pediatric & Family Medical Center in 2002, in recognition of a gift from the Eisner Foundation. This gift supported the expansion of our campus on Olive Street by over 30,000 square feet.

Designated a FQHC

We were awarded a section 330 grant and designation as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC).

Began Delivering Babies at California Hospital
