CHOC at Mission Aims For Excellence

Our goal is simply this: to become recognized in South Orange County for excellence in neonatal, pediatric and adolescent healthcare. The following are the top hospital initiatives that are getting us there:

  • Become South Orange County's leading provider of NICU and perinatology services
  • Achieve recognition for excellence in clinical care and customer service
  • Improve access to ambulatory services for South Orange County patients
  • Increase organizational alignment between CHOC at Mission and CHOC
  • Launch new programs in support of CHOC at Mission's vision
  • Increase collaboration with CHOC

Another major focus is the continued recruitment and retention of the all-RN nursing staff we enjoy here at CHOC at Mission.

Recent hospital accomplishments have included provisional CCS-certification for our pediatric unit and NICU. Additionally, 12 staff members and two physicians have completed advanced training through the Institute For Family-Centered Care.

I am delighted to be working with CHOC at Mission at this time. My CHOC career began in 1987, and I have worked in several hospital departments, including Oncology, Apheresis, Home Infusion and Home Health. In 1993, I became director of Continuum of Care, which included oversight of Case Management, Social Services and Home Health. A few years later, I directed Ambulatory Services.

Following a brief hiatus at UCI Medical Center, I returned to CHOC in 2003 as executive director of Operational Development and Implementation, which included responsibilities for CHOC/St. Joseph Hospital Shared Services, Prop 10 and the Department of Health Psychology.

We are well on the way to reaching our goal, and I look forward to our continued work together.
