THE CHILDREN’S SPECIALISTS
After many years of planning and collaboration, CHOC Children’s and the CHOC Pediatric Subspecialty Faculty have formed a new medical foundation, CHOC Children’s Specialists. The medical foundation is a model employed by California providers to work within the state’s corporate practice and medicine statute, while offering groups of specialty physicians the opportunity to become closely aligned with hospitals through a contracted relationship.
CHOC Children’s Specialists will enable CHOC to:
- More effectively attract and retain the next generation of pediatric subspecialists
- Adeptly respond to the ongoing evolution of health care delivery systems
- Expand access to care for children
- Lead in the deployment of innovative technologies
- Reach its vision to become a nationally recognized premier children’s hospital
Under the authority of the CHOC Children’s Board of Directors, CHOC Children’s Specialists will operate as a division of the hospital. The CHOC Medical Staff remains open and inclusive. A Joint Governance Committee, with representation from foundation physicians and the hospital, will support the medical foundation in setting new standards in pediatric care – benefitting patients and families.
Philosophy of Care
The CHOC Children’s Specialists physicians are dedicated to providing the same superior level of care to our patients and families that we expect for our own children. Compassion, quality and dedication are core essentials of our practice and support the CHOC Children’s Specialists Vision as we aspire to provide the optimal environment for pediatric subspecialty care.
