On the cover: Five year old Rebecca Redman was born at only 24-1/2 weeks and soon after
admitted to Connecticut Children’s NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit). The NICU, one of
Connecticut Children’s premier programs, admits approximately 500 babies each year, offering
intensive medical, surgical, and nursing care, comprehensive diagnostic capabilities, and state-ofthe-art bedside electronic monitoring, respiratory support, and radiology services.
Care kids deserve.
Each day across Connecticut, children and
their families are faced with a wide range of
medical illnesses and issues. Whether it’s setting
a cast or treating cancer, Connecticut Children’s
provides kids, from newborns to teenagers, the
highly-specialized care they deserve. In fact,
we are at the forefront of the latest pediatric
research and surgical advances. Each day
Connecticut Children’s doctors and medical
staff work tirelessly to deliver the kind of
medical care we expect for our kids and our
communities. Care that makes kids better —
care they deserve.
In 2008 Connecticut Children’s and Hartford Hospital’s integrated pediatric and adult trauma
center, The Trauma Institute, received Level I trauma verification and designation from the
American College of Surgeons and the Connecticut Department of Public Health. Pictured

“I can’t begin to tell you how impressed I am with
Connecticut Children’s. I can’t say enough good
things about it. Thank you for saving my son’s life.”
s the President and Chief Executive Officer at
Connecticut Children’s, I get to hear stories.
Lots of stories, from parents to grandparents to
friends of the many children we care for each year
at the Medical Center. These heartfelt stories, from
people who could not be more warm and gracious
with their own personal experiences, confirm
what I believe every day — Connecticut Children’s
is truly, one of a kind.
Connecticut Children’s Medical Center is the
only academic medical center in western New
England that exists for one purpose only — to
provide the highest level of care to as many children
as possible. We do this with doctors and nurses
who understand children best, because they treat
only children. We do this by providing comprehensive care, ranging from pioneering advances
in research to complicated surgical procedures.
“So I just wanted to send you a personal note telling
you that we are completely and truly satisfied with
all we have endured in your hospital and have
seen a lot of miracles happen.”
In the past year, Connecticut Children’s
provided care to a child over 240,000 times. Once
again, the past twelve months were the busiest
yet in the history of the Medical Center. We also
celebrated providing care to a child for the
2,000,000th time in our short history.
As the number of patients we care for each
year continues to increase, we know that we have
no choice but to continue to expand and broaden
our capabilities to care for them as well. In 2008,
we increased our capacity in a number of new
ways, including the following:
• Connecticut Children’s performed the State’s
first Vertical Expandable Prosthetic Titanium
Rib surgery, a new technological procedure
to treat severe scoliosis in children;
• The Medical Center is now one of only two
hospitals in the State who have performed a
relatively new, minimally invasive procedure
known as endoscopic third ventriculostomy
(ETV) for children with hydrocephalus;
• Twenty-three new physicians joined the Medical
Center in thirteen different disciplines. This
includes the hiring of a second neurosurgeon
on staff, assuring that children referred to
Connecticut Children’s will receive the most
advanced treatment available; and most recently
• Connecticut Children’s and Hartford Hospital’s
integrated pediatric and adult trauma center,
The Trauma Institute, received Level I trauma
verification and designation from the
American College of Surgeons and the
Connecticut Department of Health.
While these achievements represent only a
small sample of the steps we took in the past year,
they are a clear indication of our commitment to
continue forward as a leader in advancing pediatric
care at the highest level.
“We do not know how long we will be on this
journey with our baby, but from day one, everyone
has been actively working to cure our little boy and
for that mindset alone, I will be forever grateful.”
The mission that Connecticut Children’s has
embarked upon for the past twelve years will march
on as well. As we look forward, we realize that
there are challenges ahead. We are currently facing
an uncertain economy that presents circumstances
that have not been encountered before.
Yet the demand for pediatric health care is
blind to these challenges. The reality is that in
2009, we expect to provide more care for more
kids, in more ways than ever before and we
expect to do the same each year thereafter. Last
year, in anticipation of this growing demand and
facing a constantly-changing environment, we
developed a Strategic Plan to guide us through
what we expect to be the next few tumultuous years.
Our Strategic Plan was built to position the
Medical Center to best meet the increasing
medical needs of the children and families we
care for. We remain committed to our plan and
steadfast on meeting the demand for world-class
pediatric care the same way we have been doing
so since our inception — with a focus on familycentered care, clinical quality, research and our
ability to perform the most advanced technological
and surgical procedures.
Connecticut Children’s is
proud to be the region’s only
hospital to provide care exclusively
for children. As such, our mission
is really quite simple – to ensure
that every child receives the care
they need to secure a bright
and healthy future – the care
they deserve.
Martin J. Gavin
President and Chief Executive Officer
Connecticut Children’s Medical Center
As the region’s only academic
medical center dedicated exclusively to children, Connecticut
Children’s is unique. It is this
uniqueness that leads more
and more families to turn to
Connecticut Children’s each
year for care. We know that in
the future we can expect this increased demand
for care to continue to grow. We accept this readily,
because we know the responsibility of caring for
children is neither small nor easy.
This is why, though we now face a struggling
and uncertain economy, we move ahead boldly.
We move ahead, riding a sea of momentum that
has Connecticut Children’s uniquely positioned
to continue to be the leading provider of pediatric
care for the children and families of our region.
We have thought very thoroughly and
deliberately about what it will take to compete
and succeed in the future of health care, and we
have shaped Connecticut Children’s in recent years
to meet these needs.
Continued new advances in technology and
innovation will be needed to meet the changing
requirements of providing pediatric health care in
today’s sophisticated world. In addition, we must
continue to employ a high performing workforce
that is built from the best and the brightest, from
the surgeons in our operating suites to our facilities
staff, who keep our patients’ rooms warm and
friendly. Finally, it will also take the continued
support of our partners in government, business
and the communities we have come to count on
and appreciate so richly.
While we must evolve in these and other ways,
we will never lose sight of our single mission —
to provide the highest level of care to as many
children as possible. This is the fundamental
principle of everything we do. We all share the
belief that the children we care for are the
foundation for how everyone at Connecticut
Children’s thinks about their work, each and
every day.
Connecticut Children’s has a clear vision for
success. Executing this vision will not only help
the Medical Center prosper, but more importantly,
it will improve our ability to excel at providing
great care and service for children and families in
our region.
In a recent survey conducted on behalf of the
Medical Center, eighty-four percent of respondents
believed that a child receives superior care at a
hospital that only cares for children, when compared
to one that treats patients of all ages. We couldn’t
agree more.
On behalf of the Boards of Directors of the
Medical Center, it is our privilege to play a role in
leading the future of Connecticut Children’s. We
are grateful for the opportunity to share in the
successes of today, and more importantly, the
successes yet to come.

Fulfilling the hospital’s mission
depends not only on our
talented medical professionals,
administrators and staff. It also
depends on the essential support
of our donors. We are fortunate
that countless individuals,
corporations, foundations,
organizations and schools share our belief that
the children and families of our region deserve to
have an academic medical center dedicated exclusively to their care.
Our robust group of very special donors
enhances every corner of the Medical Center.
Contributions enable our neurosurgeons,
neonatalogists, oncologists and other pediatric
subspecialists to treat even the most complex cases
in a state-of-the-art facility designed especially for
kids. Gifts to our basic, translational and outcomes
research efforts help us to advance child health
on a regional and national level. And, unrestricted
donations allow us to meet our current needs
while seeking the most innovative ways to expand
the accessibility of the vital services we provide.
As Chairman of the Foundation Board, it is
my pleasure to extend our deepest gratitude to all
whose support has significantly impacted the
children and families of our region. By giving so
generously, they are helping to ensure that the work
that is done each day at Connecticut Children’s
is the most technologically advanced and
compassionate as possible. Work that is saving
children’s lives.

Every holiday season since Connecticut Children’s
Medical Center opened in 1996, the Connecticut
State Police, Troop H in Hartford, have collected
gifts at local Toys R Us stores as part of their “Stuff
A Cruiser” toy drive. Approximately 400,000 toys
have been collected since the toy drive’s inception
twelve years ago.
Prior to his appearance at the 2008 Connecticut Children’s Medical Center Friends Storybook
Gala, award-winning performer Ben Vereen toured the Medical Center and visited with patients
including Thomas Erserim, 8. Vereen and children’s author Suzy Kline co-headlined the Gala which
raised a record $450,000 for Connecticut Children’s.
