A Message from the President and CEO
Kimberly Chavalas Cripe

At CHOC Children's, caring is at the heart of everything we do. But there's more to providing world-class care. For our pediatric experts, it?s about keeping up-to-date on the latest medical advances and pioneering new ones. It?s about collaborating with families to determine, and customize, the most effective treatment plans.

And perhaps above all else, it?s about addressing the challenges of complex pediatric illness through innovation and compassion.

It is in this spirit of progress and excellence that I announce CHOC Children?s new strategic alliance with UC Irvine Healthcare and UC Irvine School of Medicine to better serve children and families.

Approved by the Regents of the University of California, this affiliation, which went into effect January 1, will make more pediatric beds available and will provide greater access to pediatric and neonatal intensive care services.

It will result in the creation of a pediatrics center that integrates high-quality, comprehensive patient care; leading-edge research; and excellent teaching programs. Most pediatric clinical care will be provided at CHOC, including inpatient hospital and outpatient specialty care to pediatric patients.

With this affiliation, CHOC and UC Irvine are transforming the way pediatric care is delivered in Orange County, enhancing and combining premier services to increase access to the best treatment for our community?s children.

This is exciting news for CHOC and UC Irvine as we move forward in our pursuit to provide every child in our region with the best medical care. I look forward to sharing updates on this alliance with you as we make progress in 2009.
