Message from Kim Cripe, CEO

Each year at CHOC, we revisit our strategic plan to ensure our actions are in line with our goals. We recently completed this process, and I?d like to share with you the initiatives we have identified to guide us into the future and help us realize our vision of being nationally recognized as a premier children?s hospital.

The core goal of our plan is to establish CHOC as the region?s largest and most distinguished pediatric tertiary/quaternary hospital. In other words, the largest regional hospital providing the most complex pediatric sub-specialty, medical and surgical care.

Another top goal is to secure partnerships and affiliations that enhance CHOC?s services and expand our network of care. This includes developing relationships with neighboring universities and medical centers.

We also must strive to maintain a high-performance culture to continue to attract, engage, develop and retain the best healthcare professionals. This means investing in key human resource systems that improve Associate recruitment, retention, and engagement.

Other goals include building a nationally recognized congenital heart program and launching a campaign to increase philanthropic support.

All of these objectives are designed to take CHOC to the next level in its strategic growth, and all require increasing our financial strength to fully realize our mission and vision.

On behalf of the physicians, Associates, and patients at CHOC, I am so grateful to all of you who have supported CHOC in our mission to nurture, advance and protect the health and well-being of children. I hope you will join me on the rest of our journey.
