Who We Are

Earl and Loraine Miller's love for the Children of Long Beach prompted them to establish the Earl B. and Loraine H. Miller Foundation as well as build the Miller Children's Hospital.

Since its inception in 1967, the foundation has maintained its focus on children and their health care needs within the Greater Long Beach community.  As the Foundation approached the new millennium, the Board of Trustees conducted a "needs assessment" for the children of Long Beach.

As a result, the board adopted the concepts of the "treating the whole child" and the World Health Organization's definition of health.  These concepts were integrated into the Foundations strategic plan.


"Health is a state of complete

 and social well-being and not

 merely the absence of

 disease or infirmity."
