A Welcome from the Chair

I am pleased to introduce the UW Department of Pediatrics’ first Web-based annual report. Since my arrival in 2006, one of my goals has been to showcase our faculty and their accomplishments and highlight specific divisions, programs, or projects.

In this inaugural report, we’re focusing on 2007 and 2008. We intend to present a single calendar year in future reports.

During my first years here, our department has had many successes, but one in particular was monumental. In August of 2007, we opened the new, long-awaited American Family Children’s Hospital.

We are proud of our outstanding facility and delighted that in the first two years, we have exceeded our projections and expectations. It is truly a first-rate children’s hospital with first-rate care for children.
