Shocking UCLA with the kind of largess that most institutions only dream about, an 83-year-old Sun Valley businessman has promised $12 million to the university's Children's Hospital. Although many benefactors might ask for such acknowledgment as having a building named after them, Rubin Brown asked only that his millions be used "to help the kids," said Kim Richardson, a spokesman for the electrical supply entrepreneur.

Shao-han Deng , a 4-year-old boy who came from China for a series of operations to correct a heart condition at UCLA Children's Hospital, received an unexpected visit Wednesday.

Firefighters from Station 37 in Westwood presented a handmade 10-seat cart shaped like a fire engine to children enrolled in the UCLA Children's Hospital Intervention Program. The program helps children from infancy up to age 6 with severe developmental disabilities such as Down's syndrome, cerebral palsy, spina bifida and mental retardation. The facility is next to the station and 10 to 20 children stop by twice a week to visit firefighters and play with the station's Dalmatian, Bruin.

The money will also help fund child development specialists who provide support services to families and their sick infants.

The sign outside the UCLA Medical Center's pediatrics department soon will read "UCLA Children's Hospital." The name change has occurred since the medical center in Westwood was accepted for membership in the National Assn. of Children's Hospitals and Related Facilities. The association sets criteria for children's hospitals nationwide and is the premier membership group for pediatric hospitals, which are not accredited.
