Children's Hospital Los Angeles Receives $3 Million for NICCU

Children's Hospital Los Angeles has announced a $3 million gift from the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Foundation in support of its neonatal critical care unit.

The gift will support research and quality medical care for neonates as well as training for fellows who learn to care for critically ill newborns in the hospital's newborn and infant critical care unit. The state-of-the-art fifty-eight-bed NICCU hosts a team of pediatric medical and surgical subspecialists — cardiologists, endocrinologists, neurologists, pulmonologists, nephrologists, hematologists, and geneticists — as well as ancillary services across the full range of neonatal health issues. In recognition of the gift, the unit will be named the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Foundation Newborn and Infant Critical Care Unit.

Steven Cohen is chairman and CEO of Point72 Asset Management, an investment firm based in Stamford, Connecticut. Alexandra Cohen serves as president of the Cohen Foundation.

"We are thrilled that the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Foundation has recognized CHLA's excellence in specialized neonatal care and has given generously to support our program," said CHLA president and CEO Paul S. Viviano. "This gift fortifies CHLA's mission and ensures that this most vulnerable patient population always receives the world-class medical attention they deserve."
