Our Work Together - 2015 Highlights

April 2016

The pace of change in the health care industry makes it more important than ever to stay connected to colleagues across the country. As a small industry with a mighty cause, we link arms to create solutions and advance next generation payment and delivery models for child health and children’s hospitals. Children’s Hospital Association (CHA) is powered by the collaboration of more than 220 children’s hospitals.

Working together in 2015, we focused on two fundamental areas:

  • Changing public policy to impact the children’s hospital and pediatric health care industry
  • Improving the practice of pediatric health care and performance of children’s hospitals
