A Letter from Our CEOUpdated May 21, 2020 at 10:00 am
Dear Patient Family,
We have never taken for granted the sacred trust you place in us to care for your child, and today we are more grateful than ever for that privilege. Thank you for allowing us the honor of serving you and your family.
Times of great uncertainty have a way of crystallizing what matters most – and for parents and caretakers, it is the health and safety of our children. Children's Health℠ has been honored to call that our work, our purpose and our mission for more than a century. It is why we have kept showing up, every day, and will continue to as our country and community find a way to persevere through this unprecedented chapter.
For all the parts of everyday life that can be put on hold, the well‑being of your family is not one of them. Expert, consistent pediatric care is more important than ever, which is why we have begun resuming the services, diagnostic procedures and surgeries we temporarily paused. As part of our thoughtful, phased approach, we have implemented numerous changes and protocols so you can feel confident your child is receiving our same high‑quality care in the safest environment possible.
To learn about all the ways we are working to keep you, your family and our team members safe, along with up-to-date information on our COVID‑19 response and advice on coping in this challenging period, visit childrens.com/covid‑19.
Our world looks a lot different these days, but one thing remains the same – Children's Health is here and ready to care for your child. We look forward to seeing you soon.
President and CEO
