CHLA patients move into the new, high-tech, $636-million facility
A transportation event began early Sunday morning that had been more than a year in the making, involving complex logistics, critical timing, hundreds of participants and precious cargo.
It took place not on a Los Angeles freeway but in the corridors of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, where nearly 200 patients, from tiny newborns swaddled in color-coded blankets to teenagers, were carefully moved to a new $636-million facility that will utilize the most advanced technologies.
More than 600 medical staff underwent months of intensive training and preparation, and the hospital set up a command center to monitor the progress of each patient being moved from the old hospital to the adjoining seven-story Marion & John E. Anderson Pavilion.
Just a letter of thanks for helping us get the bed and pressure reduction mattress approved. It has been a Godsend with Matt's rods and other problems. We are so grateful to you and your company for making a safe environement for our son! God Bless you all!
Actually the feedback from has been extremely positive. Staff call it the "cadillac of cribs." They are thrilled they can gain access to the children through the ports, especially in the middle of the night when they are trying to avoid waking the parents. They also stated the side rails lower quietly.

Prior to my departure as director of The Children’s Hospital, I had the pleasure of replacing all our cribs with new HARD cribs in the confetti pattern. You would have thought it was Christmas morning in terms of the staff’s response. They loved the cribs from both an aesthetic and functional basis! Now that I've relocated to a different Children’s Hospital, my operation is smaller but the HARD crib reputation is still outstanding! You’re a 10!
We love the cribs and I would rate them a ‘10’ in recommending them to someone else. We especially like the adjustable mattress height and the type of mattresses that came with the crib. The color is very friendly for children as opposed to the stainless steel. My staff is asking why I didn’t buy more and I am sure that the PICU staff would appreciate having them there, as well. I will forward our recommendation to their manager as well.
The “Cribette” is in use in our NICU with a set of preemie twins, co-bedding in it! Staff seems to really like it so far. I really appreciate the responsiveness of your company, from the quote and purchase process all the way through to the follow up. Great job!
The staff and most importantly the parents are very happy with the new cribs. The families are so positive about the cribs as opposed to the stainless steel cribs of the past that did have an ‘institutional’ look. It really does matter to families when their babies are in our unit for a long time and they see it as an important milestone in their baby’s lives when they are able to graduate from an isolette to an open crib. Thanks for the opportunity to let us tell you how much this means to the families and the staff.
We absolutely love our cribs and will be ordering more.
The “Cribette” is working out great. On a scale of 1-10 I would rate HARD’S products a 10 and would recommend their products to a colleague. You always provide me with excellent customer service; prompt and courteous.
We love the cribs we received. Everything is great! We give a 10 in rating HARD’S cribs and I would definitely recommend these cribs to any other facility.
We are very pleased with the “Cribettes”. I would highly recommend them to other institutions and give your company and products a 10!
We do like your cribs. I would recommend your service and cribs to other hospitals.
