2007: Looking Ahead

Looking Ahead

Looking Ahead The children in our region and community inspire us to be the best children's hospital  

If Anna Clise walked into Children's today, she'd undoubtedly be pleased, but not surprised, at the hospital's growth. Her vision — that all children should grow up without injury or illness — inspires us to be the best children's hospital.

Our long-range strategic plan, approved by the board of trustees in July 2006, takes us another step closer to meeting the region's growing needs for pediatric specialty care in Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho.

Our goal is to offer the best, most innovative and easily accessible pediatric care — both inpatient and outpatient — to every family and referring physician in the region.

We already provide treatment in more than 50 pediatric specialties and are home to several nationally recognized programs such as cancer, craniofacial, orthopedics and transplantation.

But our region's children and families need and deserve more.

We recently announced plans to expand our presence on the east side of Lake Washington and will eventually do the same in Everett and South King County, enabling us to bring our specialty clinics, urgent care, lab, radiology and outpatient surgery closer to the families who need our services. Our expanding research campus in downtown Seattle will draw the finest physician scientists to Seattle to help us in our quest to eliminate pediatric disease.

The strong community support that launched the hospital 100 years ago continues today — and is making a difference for thousands of children in our region.

We thank you for being part of Children's future. With our expertise and your support, imagine the possibilities.

Follow us into the future at Children's.
