t's good to be together again. After two
years of video meetings and phone
calls, being together is something we have
craved as human beings. Our engagement
as leaders and our teams' engagement
with patients, families and each other is
heightened when we can be physically
present. These connections are important
for our health and well-being as we navigate
the ongoing pandemic. Together, we
are stronger.
As a community of children's hospitals
and health systems, we are also stronger
when we are together. This spring,
through CHA's
in-person meetings of
affinity groups and our governance, we
safely gathered to continue the work
of our shared priorities: taking care of
our people and improving the health
of children.
Throughout the rest of the year, we will
continue to leverage the power of being together,
in person, to maximize our efforts.
In July, more than 80 children's hospital
leaders and mental health experts visited
Washington, D.C., to ask Congress and the
Biden administration to increase funding
for pediatric mental health programs,
workforce and care. In addition, a national

improvement initiatives focused on the
mental and behavioral health of children
and youth; the health and future of our
workforce and our hospitals and systems;
and the quality of care provided to children
and families. As we work on these
and tackle other challenges, known and
unknown, we will broaden our focus on
quality,
including equity, and use comparative
data and analytics in new ways.
And, while being together is a priority,
collaborative will
launch in September and the Behavioral
Health Summit will be held in October.
In November, we look forward to
gathering for the Annual Leadership
Conference (ALC). We will discuss behavioral
health, as well as other strategic
priorities we share as leaders. The aim is
to make progress locally, within our hospitals
and communities, and nationally as
a community of children's hospitals and
health systems.
These opportunities will help us advance
important advocacy, learning and
we will continue to leverage virtual technology-when
it makes sense-to enable
broader participation in these efforts and
strengthen our collective understanding
and voice.
Don't underestimate the power of being
together-it elevates our attitudes and
our impact.
