HealthONE(R) Appoints Nationally Renowned Pediatric Cardiologist & Childhood Obesity Expert as First Chief Medical Officer for the Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children(SM)
Date:12/12/2007

Medicine and Fitness and the 2007 recipient of its Thomas E. Shaffer Award, recognizing an individual for lifelong contributions in the field of sports medicine.

Both Washington and Chang were among a group of pediatric physicians, pediatric sub-specialists and pediatric surgeons who moved their practices to Presbyterian/St. Luke's 17 years ago and established a regionally renowned center there caring for high-risk births, neonates, infants, children and teens. As demand began outgrowing space at P/SL, these pediatric specialists also became the impetus for establishing a new, stand-alone pediatric medical center to better accommodate the increase in patients.

"Most U.S. cities of Denver's size have at least two stand-alone children's hospitals," Washington says. "Our region is growing, and the Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children brings another choice for the high-caliber care children and physicians need and deserve."

Plans for The Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children were formally unveiled in June and construction planning is under way for the $113 million complex on the P/SL campus. In addition to the pediatric hospital, there will be a new medical office building, ambulatory surgery center and parking structure. Until the new hospital opens, Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children physicians and staff will continue providing care within P/SL.

As Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Washington will oversee enhancements of newborn and pediatric care across the HealthONE system of hospitals, incorporating the specialty emergency and pediatric services of Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children.

"Dr. Washington is a national expert on the health of our children. It is an honor and a privilege to have him on our team," says Mimi Roberson, President and CEO of Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center, who has worked with him for eight years. "He treats all of his patients as if they were his own kids. He will lead us into the next generation of care
