CHOC Announces New Medical Staff Leadership

Their leadership, dedication and commitment ensure Orange County’s children and families continue receiving the best pediatric care in the region. Physicians at CHOC Children’s and CHOC Children’s at Mission Hospital were recently elected to serve two-year terms.

At both hospitals, physician leaders begin this multi-year commitment as Secretary/ Treasurer and continue as President-Elect or Chief of Staff-Elect prior to being installed as President or Chief of Staff, respectively.


“As CHOC Children’s embarks on its new phase of growth, I will work with the medical staff on advancing academics, education and research. We will ensure that the very best physicians are afforded the privilege to care for the children of Orange County, and will work on continued refinement of physician performance metrics. I will also make every effort to ensure that CHOC provides an optimal environment for the physicians to work in, securing both physician satisfaction and retention. Ultimately, all my efforts, and those of my colleagues on CHOC’s medical staff, will remain directed at delivering the finest medical care to the children of Orange County.”

We are grateful to Vijay Dhar, M.D., and Gary Goodman, M.D., who recently completed their terms. CHOC is very fortunate to have such dedicated physicians who give so freely of their time and talents.
