Date:3/24/2008

MINNEAPOLIS and ST. PAUL, Minn., March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota today announced the recent appointment of Julie Morath, RN, chief operating officer and vice president of care delivery, to the Steering Committee of the National Quality Forum (NQF), a private, not-for-profit membership organization created to develop and implement a national strategy for healthcare quality measurement and reporting.

Morath will be joined by 14 other committee members responsible for reviewing and recommending amendments to the NQF-endorsed(TM) Safe Practices for Better Healthcare, a set of 30 safe practices that should be universally utilized in applicable clinical care settings to reduce the risk of harm to patients.

"Julie Morath's contributions to the field of patient safety and her work at Children's have set new standards for leadership," said Alan L. Goldbloom, MD, President and CEO of Children's. "Children's is proud of her appointment to this important committee that continues to address the issues of patient safety and quality."

With more than 30 years of health care experience, Morath joined Children's in 1999, and set about immediately to build what has become known as "a culture of safety" in the organization. Her emphasis includes perfecting complex systems of medical care so that patients are never vulnerable to harm. Under her leadership, Children's core focus is to "do the right thing at the right time for every single child, each and every time."

Morath earned her master's degree at the University of California at San Francisco and her bachelor's degree from the University of Michigan. A Minneapolis resident, she and her husband, Don Morath, MD, have four grown children.

Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota is the seventh-largest children's health care organization in the U.S., with 332 staffed beds at its two hospital campuses in St. Paul and Minneapolis. An independent, not-for-profit health care system, Children's of Minnesota provides care through more than 14,000 inpatient visits and more than 200,000 emergency room and other outpatient visits each year.
