Children’s Health puts children first. SM

In fact, we were pioneers in focusing care exclusively on children, starting in 1913. We’ve come a long way since, and 2014 was another transformative year in our history. It’s the year we introduced Children’s HealthSM, a comprehensive integrated health care system that includes Children’s Medical Center Dallas, Children’s Medical Center Plano, multiple specialty centers and pediatric groups, and a network of community partnerships united to support the health and wellness of children in North Texas. From routine checkups to rare cancers and beyond, from the operating room to the living room, we can now care for more children in more places in more ways than ever before. In our first Children’s Health Annual Report, we’d like to celebrate some of our “firsts,” “bests” and “onlys” – the achievements that make us stand out as one of the finest pediatric care resources in the nation. And we’d also like to showcase the first-rate resources of our system and how they will, first and foremost, help us continue our mission of making life better for children.

1


Dear Friends and Supporters: Welcome to our 2014 Annual Report. It celebrates and commemorates a momentous year for us, the year we announced Children’s Health. Children’s Health is one of the nation’s leading pediatric health care systems, providing a full spectrum of health care services for children in Dallas, North Texas and surrounding regions.

I

nside you’ll find some of the facts and figures that are part of the reason Children’s Health has made a name for itself nationally for excellence in pediatric health care.

I think kids in general are good with names; they’re very creative. For instance, our kids this year started calling our new RP-VITA unit “Dr. Zippy,” a pretty good name for a health care-delivering robot that zips in and out of patient rooms. Children’s Health is also well-named. In two words, our name tells you who we are and what we stand for. Children’s Health is an integrated health care system delivering an extensive range of care, led by the flagship hospital Children’s Medical Center Dallas, and including another full-service hospital, Children’s Medical Center Plano, as well as the Children’s Medical Center Research Institute at UT Southwestern, performing transformative biomedical research. The system also includes multiple specialty centers, 18 Pediatric Group practices, a telemedicine network, plus home health and physician services. And we reach even further into our communities with a growing affiliated network of 290+ private pediatricians, and multiple community health programs and initiatives that allow us to help children in community centers, schools and even their homes. It’s more important than ever before for us to be able to reach more children in more ways. Why? 2


Because there is more need than ever before. The rate of uninsured children in Texas is among the highest in the nation. One in nine children in the U.S. lives in our state, and more are coming. One thousand people move to Texas every day, and half of them are children! At Children’s Health, our mission is to make life better for children. In addition to our system announcement, in 2014 we further defined the values that guide us in pursuing this mission: The Children’s Way: Values > Selfless Service > Passionate Advocacy > Commitment to Excellence > Unwavering Integrity We also named the priorities that will provide focus for how we operate as an organization: The Course: Strategic Priorities > People > Quality > Efficiency > Growth Thank you for your interest in Children’s Health. I know you join me in applauding our 6,000 team members and the more than 1,000 physicians and dentists practicing at Children’s Health. They live these values and address these priorities every day as we all strive together to make life better for children.

CRI leverages interdisciplinary groups of scientists and physicians pursuing research at the interface of regenerative medicine, cancer biology and metabolism – fields that hold uncommon potential for discoveries that can lead to groundbreaking advances in science and medicine. A 2014 breakthrough: Researchers at CRI successfully identified a gene that contributes to childhood cancers in a study conducted with mice designed to model the cancers. If the findings prove to be applicable to humans, the research could lead to new strategies for targeting certain pediatric cancers at a molecular level.

Children’s Health remains a financially strong, fiscally responsible organization, despite the many challenges in our nation’s health care system, including changing standards for

reimbursement. As an acknowledgment of

our financial strength, Moody’s Investor Service gives Children’s Health a top rating, which is

based on finances as well as on a number of other factors, including governance.

Financial performance matters, but what matters most is making life better for children. Sometimes, it takes speaking up in order to ensure that the health of our children

is supported as a matter of public policy. That can mean citizen advocacy, as was

undertaken by six-year-old Sydney Mayrell,

a Children’s Health patient, who accompanied other concerned citizens on a Legislative

Advocacy Trip to Washington, D.C., in 2013. Encouraging our nation’s legislators to support children’s health programs,
