Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) provides pediatric health care for more than 107,000 children each year. Matt and Larissa’s daughter, Layla Paige, was diagnosed with developmental hip dysplasia at the age of 3 months, one week prior to moving to Los Angeles from New York City. CHLA scrambled to get her an appointment with the Chief of Orthopaedic Surgery the very next week. Layla continues to receive unparalleled care from the entire Orthopaedic staff.
At the age of 6 months, Layla had her first seizure. After being admitted into CHLA, it was discovered that she has a rare and undiagnosed brain disorder. Layla receives top-rated care from many, many doctors and teams covering numerous departments: Neurology, Neurosurgery, Neuro-Ophthalmology, Orthopedic, Genetics/Pathology, Gastroenterology, Pulmonology, General Pediatrics, Clinical Nutrition, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Vision Therapy through the Braille Institute, and Palliative Care.
Words cannot describe the tremendous debt of gratitude the Sonnen family owes to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. As the first and largest pediatric hospital in Southern California, CHLA relies on the generosity of philanthropists in the community to support compassionate patient care, leading-edge education of the caregivers of tomorrow and innovative research efforts that impact children at our hospital and around the world.
