Located in Campbell just minutes from major hospitals including Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital, Good Samaritan Hospital, Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, and Kaiser Permanente Medical Center, the Children’s Hospital of Northern California [CHONC] provides pediatric acute and subacute services for children throughout Northern California.

CHONC offers a warm and engaging environment that reflects the children who live there. From carpeted patient rooms and vibrant decorations to beautiful grounds designed with the child at heart, CHONC delivers an environment designed to nurture and support the machine-dependent child.

CHONC is a small facility with a dedicated staff that is instantly available when needed. With an onsite medical director, social worker, nursing, respiratory, and therapy staff, and administrative team, key personnel are seconds away from providing whatever support is needed.

The grounds and main building at CHONC are well maintained. Once you walk through the doors, you will immediately notice that this is no ordinary hospital. Seasonal artwork, surrounding the theme of the most current special occasion (Mother’s / Father’s Day, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, etc.) hangs from the walls of the hallway leading to the Nursing Station. Numerous kites and dioramas are displayed throughout other areas. The fact that CHONC is a small facility brings the convenience of having the medical director, social worker, nursing staff, respiratory staff, therapy staff, and administrative staff all centrally located and easily accessible, without the complications found in large facilities, where these key personnel are located on different floors and buildings. Ultimately, this enables staff to provide the best individualized care and meet the needs of you and your loved one.

CHONC is located in beautiful Campbell, California on the San Jose/Los Gatos border. We are accessible from several major freeways and streets. In an emergency, should your child need immediate medical attention, Good Samaritan Hospital is less than 3 minutes away, followed by Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital.
