Joining the nation's foremost children's hospitals, Winthrop's Department of Pediatrics has been admitted to the National Association of Children's Hospitals and Related Institutions (NACHRI).
As one of only 140 NACHRI full-voting institutional members, Winthrop meets the prestigious organization's rigorous criteria for institutions that provide a full range of quality pediatric services.
NACHRI is a not-for-profit membership association of children's hospitals, large pediatric units of medical centers and related organizations, including those that specialize in rehabilitative and long-term care of children with serious chronic or congenital illnesses. It promotes the health and well-being of children and their families through support of children's hospitals and health systems committed to providing excellent health care to children.
"Winthrop is proud to be accepted into NACHRI as a full-voting institutional member," said Warren Rosenfeld, MD, Winthrop's Chairman of Pediatrics.
Winthrop's Hagedorn Pediatric Center offers a multi-specialty, tertiary care program with highly experienced, board-certified pediatric specialists, many of whom are nationally and internationally recognized for their outstanding performance and achievements in the treatment of young patients. They work closely with pediatric nurses, who have advanced training, technicians and support staff in a wide range of clinical specialties, including--but not limited to--adolescent medicine, cardiology, endocrinology, neonatology, oncology and orthopaedic surgery and sports medicine. Additional specialty programs include an inpatient and outpatient Child Life Program and others that focus on childhood obesity, children with diabetes and youngsters with growth hormone problems.
The Center's facilities, which house the most advanced technology, are warm, comfortable, child-oriented and family-centered. They include a dedicated Pediatric Emergency/Trauma Unit, a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, the Cancer Center for Kids, a Pediatric Ambulatory Surgery Center and a Regional Perinatal Center, which features a Level 3 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
"Participation in NACHRI offers us the ability to communicate with a vast network of people who understand children: their needs, their treatment and the financing of their care," said Ed Chewens, Administrative Director of Pediatrics for Winthrop. "We look forward to bringing our leadership and special insights to the Association and joining in the imperative for stronger advocacy on behalf of all children."
As an NACHRI member, Winthrop will participate in national programs to increase public awareness of children's health requirements, to collect and disseminate important evidence-based information, and to enhance quality and cost-efficiency.
"We welcome Winthrop to the family of caregivers devoted to improving the health of children, and we look forward to its active involvement," said Lawrence A. McAndrews, NACHRI President and Chief Executive Officer.
