2022 Community Health Assessment

Seattle Children’s has released its 2022 Pediatric Community Health Assessment (CHA). It offers insights on the factors impacting the health and well-being of communities in the WAMI region and the assets our community has available to address them.

The CHA describes progress from 2019 to 2022 in four priority health areas (mental and behavioral health, suicide and injury prevention, healthy lifestyles and economic security). Of the 12 strategies and 63 tactics we pursued, we made progress on all 63 tactics. Three-quarters of those are complete or progressing with little to no barriers to achieve successful outcomes. Work on the remainder is continuing in earnest. While there is still much work to be done, we are proud of the progress we’ve made despite the slowdown caused by COVID-19 in our ability to launch some of these efforts.

OBCC Annual Report

Seattle Children’s Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic (OBCC) underwent significant transformational advancements in 2022 in the way it serves patients and their families, as outlined in the FY 2022 OBCC Annual Report.

  • Our newest clinic location, OBCC Othello, opened in March 2022 next to light rail’s Othello Station, inside the Othello Square building that is home to complementary economic and educational services for our community.
  • Our Early Childhood Developmental (EDC) Navigator pilot project was rated excellent by 92% of families. We are working to make this a permanent program.
  • A new Center of Excellence was launched to improve care for patients with sickle cell disease, with more providers and appointments now available five days a week, among other enhancements.
  • We allocated resources to expand the social work team from one to five social workers so that we could do more to evaluate patients’ and families’ social determinants of health (including suicide screening), provide more family and staff support and more.

The report lays out OBCC’s core services, partnerships and milestone events as well as financial and patient experience data and donor recognition and fundraising statistics.
