Mykenzi: A True Miracle Girl A

ny parent will tell you that their baby is a miracle, but few can know the true meaning of the word more than Trish and Matt Jankowski.

Watching their daughter, Mykenzi, grow is a special joy, made possible by the care of a whole team of Rady Children’s physicians and scientists – and by the courage of an amazing little girl determined to beat the odds from the very beginning. Even before Mykenzi was born, there were complications. She was diagnosed in utero with Turner syndrome, a chromosomal abnormality which manifests in every patient differently – including short stature, swelling, low hairline, low set ears, congenital heart disease, hypothyroidism, diabetes, vision problems, hearing concerns, many different autoimmune diseases, and, in some cases cognitive impairment. It also meant that Mykenzi only had a one in 100 chance of making it full term. But Mykenzi was a fighter. Although affected by almost all the possible complications, her spirit is an inspiration to her family. Her diagnosis was confirmed when she was 2 days old, and because there is no cure for Turner’s syndrome, her treatments began. Mykenzi had heart surgery when she was 2 weeks old and has had a dozen other surgical procedures since. She also receives a steady regimen of growth hormones. Many of the treatments that are helping Mykenzi are made possible through innovative research conducted at Rady Children’s and UC San Diego (see box). The amazing discoveries in heart surgeries and hormone therapies will help children here in San Diego and around the world. Today, Mykenzi is a whirlwind of energy – a bright and happy 5-year-old. She faces challenges ahead, such as a future aortic valve replacement, but continues to grow and thrive – a miracle, in every sense of the word.

Clinical trials currently underway by doctors at Rady Children’s and UC San Diego can help children with Turner syndrome, including some of the following studies: • Dr. John Moore, Rady Children’s Cardiology Division Chief and Professor of Clinical Pediatrics at UC San Diego, is studying new stents used in surgeries for coarctation of the aorta. • Dr. John Lamberti, the Eugene and Joyce Klein Director of the Heart Institute at Rady Children’s and Professor of Surgery at UC San Diego, is studying the possible benefits of using the CryoValve SGAV as an aortic valve replacement. • Dr. Michael Gottschalk, Rady Children’s Endocrinology Division Chief and Clinical Professor at UC San Diego, is conducting research involving the drug Increlex for growth failure. • Dr. Ron Newfield, Rady Children’s Endocrinologist; Associate Clinical Professor of Pediatrics, UC San Diego, is studying a hormone therapy called Genotropin in short-stature patients.

Making Our Community Proud A Message from the Board Chairs


his last fiscal year marked an amazing milestone in our history: Rady Children’s became the largest children’s hospital in California – and the sixth largest in the country. As Chairs for the governing boards, we have never been so proud to be a part of the Rady Children’s family. Our pride, though, is not so much that we are the biggest; it comes from our commitment to being the best at providing healthcare to the children in our community. We take our obligation to our community very seriously, and we believe that shows in our financial management (page 10), increased access to programs and services (pages 5-6), and our dedication to Discovery (page 19). There is pride for all to see in the amazing advances and superior care that happen within Rady Children’s, knowing that we are helping children here and across the nation. For those of you who volunteer your time and talents or give so generously to us, we thank you. This report is dedicated to you – and all you do for children. Your dedication and commitment makes us all proud every day.

2011: A Year of Growth and Innovation A Message from the CEO


ooking back over the last 12 months, I have seen our Hospital and its extraordinary physicians, nurses and staff excel in so many ways. In May, that excellence was prominently recognized when Rady Children’s was ranked among the nation’s best children’s hospitals in all 10 pediatric specialties surveyed by U.S. News & World Report (page 8).

Our growth has been marked not just by size and recognition, but by our hallmark dedication to delivering the best care, technology and innovation to our region’s children. Collaboration has long been important to our Hospital. Our partnerships with the region’s major healthcare systems, along with the UC San Diego School of Medicine, enable us to always put children first. In April, with our new partner Sanford Health, we began serving the families of North County through our new “Castle of Care” in Oceanside (page 5). Another milestone was our launch of The Campaign for Rady Children’s (page 18), the public phase of our effort to raise $220 million by 2012. Kids are at the center of everything we do at Rady Children’s, and the Campaign is no different. Three former patients – Kassidy, Ian and Zara – are the Campaign’s Honorary

Chairs and represent its three main components: care, lifesaving technology and discovery. These children are joined by another two important Honorary Chairs: Tracy and Trevor Hoffman, who are longtime supporters of Rady Children’s. Thank you for your support of Rady Children’s. We can look back at the growth and innovations of the last year with satisfaction, and, because of your compassion and support, look forward to a future filled with promise..

Milestones 2011: The Fiscal Year in Review Expansion

More facilities to help more children.


ady Children’s began the year by reaching new heights – in every way – with the opening of our new Acute Care Pavilion (ACP) on 1010-10. Completed ahead of schedule and under budget, the 279,000-square-foot building is now home to the Peckham Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, the largest pediatric hematology/oncology program serving San Diego, Riverside and Imperial counties; a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit with home-like private rooms; and the Warren Family Surgical Center with advanced surgical suites. The ACP added 154 beds to Rady Children’s, making our Hospital the largest children’s hospital in California.

In March, we celebrated the opening of the North Coastal Center in Oceanside, an amazing “Castle of Care,” made possible by a partnership between Rady Children's and Sanford Children's Health. The new Center provides primary care, urgent care and various medical specialties, as well as developmental services, outpatient psychiatry services, and child abuse prevention and treatment services.

Castle of Care

Frost Street

On our Kearny Mesa campus, we expanded as well, purchasing two new buildings at 7910 and 7920 Frost Street, providing critically needed space for pediatric research, expanded outpatient services and meeting rooms. Our planned research institute next to the Hospital campus will house all patient-based research, including clinical trials. The top physicianscientists, clinicians, statisticians, epidemiologists and bioinformaticists will be in one location, sharing information and collaborating to find treatments and cures. Currently, more than 160 clinical trials and 250 other research projects are underway at Rady Children’s/UC San Diego School of Medicine.

Milestones 2011: The Year in Review New Programs and Services Medical West Continuing to meet the needs of children and adolescents, Rady Children’s opened our Medical West unit, an inpatient treatment unit for patients with eating disorders. Before the advent of this unit, San Diego did not have an organized pediatric inpatient program for patients in need of treatment for anorexia and bulimia. Patients were treated on an outpatient basis or referred out of the area to receive services.

New MRI Another innovative service that Rady Children’s now offers families is a kid-friendly MRI. Sharp and Children’s MRI Center features a state-of-theart GE Discovery MR450 with the CinemaVision system that allows children to watch a movie or listen to music while being scanned. To make the process even more kidfriendly, the entire MRI suite – including the MRI itself – is decorated in a cartoon sea creature theme.

Providing the most advanced technology is crucial in fulfilling our Mission – and philanthropy plays a critical role in providing new equipment and services. Ledcor Construction Inc., for instance, provided a leadership gift in funding our new child-friendly MRI. To learn more about technology, see page 19.

Our Epic Journey EPIC – our electronic medical records system – also took a major step forward with the implementation of its inpatient services phase. And MyChart, a secure online health connection for patient families, continues to expand, offering a convenient way for parents to access their children’s medical records online and through their smartphone.

Welcome to Dr. Feldstein

Dr. Ariel Feldstein

In August, Rady Children’s was pleased to announce that Ariel Feldstein, MD joined the Hospital staff as the new Chief of the Pediatric Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition. Dr. Feldstein is regarded as a leading physician-scientist in the field of pediatric hepatology. “My vision is to continue to strengthen the work that is being done at Rady Children’s and in the next several years become one of the top five programs in the country,” says Feldstein.

Awards and Honors Rady Children's Earns Green Globe Award In June, Rady Children’s received a Green Leadership Award from BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) at its World Environment Day celebration. Rady Children’s was recognized for its commitment to sustainable healthcare by implementing innovative programs to reduce its environmental impact. “We are pleased to acknowledge Rady Children’s for its commitment and leadership to a more sustainable healthcare environment,” said Alberto Mas, President, BD – Medical Surgical Systems.

2011 San Diego Magazine Top Doctors The October issue of San Diego Magazine honored 98 Rady Children’s physicians named as 2011 San Diego Top Doctors. Each year, the San Diego County Medical Society asks physicians for the names of board-certified doctors to whom they would refer their patients and family members. That means making the list is high praise – physicians who are highly trusted and respected by their peers. To see the names of the honored physicians, visit our homepage at www.rchsd.org and click on the icon under Awards.

Kathleen Sellick: Woman of the Year Rady Children’s President and CEO, Kathleen Sellick, was named 2011 Woman of the Year by San Diego Magazine. This prestigious award is given to women who are providing exceptional leadership for the San Diego region. More than 140 women were nominated this year, and Kathleen joins an extraordinary group of past honorees.

or the Dickinson Family, helping the children and families at Rady Children’s is a proud tradition. “It all started with many of my family members volunteering and serving on various boards,” says Kris Dickinson.“My grandparents made their first gift in the 70s. Having quality education and the best medical care available right here in San Diego was very important to them.” Kris is now the Executive Director of The Donald C. & Elizabeth M. Dickinson Foundation, generous Circle of Care donors. He helps in another important way, too, donating his time and leadership as Trustee for Rady Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Our Children’s Circle of Care members share in the satisfaction of helping children in a profoundly meaningful way. They also share in the fun of exclusive events, like our fall celebration with a private performance by Three Dog Night, and a chance to meet physicians and learn more about care, technology and discovery at Rady Children’s.

GIFTS THAT INSPIRE Joyce and Jere Oren


or Rancho Santa Fe residents Joyce and Jere Oren, philanthropy isn’t just a word; it’s a way of life. “My idea of philanthropy is to give it all away,” says Jere. “I feel like if I can do something to help someone else, then that’s what I should do.” The Orens recently established a charitable gift annuity in the amount of $100,000 designated for the Peckham Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Rady Children’s. By establishing a charitable gift annuity, the Orens receive income from the gift for the rest of their lives, after which the remainder of the annuity transfers to Rady Children’s. When the Oren’s daughter was little, she was treated for a staph infection at Boston Children’s, and Jere recalls how impressed he was by the hospital’s dedication to children. His gift to Rady Children’s is his way of giving back to pediatric medicine, and through their generosity, the Orens are doing their part to take care of things for San Diego’s children – and leaving a rich legacy for the future. “I wanted to do it now,” he says, “and enjoy the thrill of seeing others enjoy the fruits of my labor.”

Rady Children’s Magazine 15


ady Children's Hospital Auxiliary has been making a difference in the health and well-being of children since 1953 – one full year before the Hospital first opened its doors.

Ever since, this dedicated group of volunteers has strived to help Rady Children’s meet each new challenge. Today more than 1,200 volunteers continue to support Rady Children’s through fundraising efforts, advocacy and education.

How You Can Get Involved

There are three fun and satisfying ways to support the Auxiliary:

CELEBRATE! Make a gift to the Honoring, Remembrance and Celebration Fund to express gratitude or commemorate those people who have touched and enriched our lives. Those being honored will have their names beautifully handwritten in the Book of Honoring or Book of Remembrance, displayed in the Rose Pavilion. Celebration Tiles are tribute gifts that are also available for contributions totaling $5,000 or more. These 8” x 8” tiles are designed by the donor and displayed in the Rady Children’s Rose Pavilion for patients and their families to see every day.

ATTEND! Auxiliary Units hold many events throughout the year in addition to Kids’ NewsDay and Fantasy on Ice (see box below). Go to www.radychildrensaux.org to check out the event calendar.

JOIN! The one thing that all members of Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary share is a sincere desire to help ensure the health and well-being of the children in our community. Our members are committed to supporting a worthy cause – and having fun doing it. The Auxiliary welcomes your involvement. If you would like to join this talented and dedicated group, please call 858-966-5887 or visit our website at www.radychildrensaux.org.

One Dollar. One Paper. One Day. This year, the special edition of the daily paper, featuruing heartwarming and inspiring stories about our patients, raised more than $105,000 for Rady Children’s. This year, on October 25, thousands of volunteers hit the streets, selling 46,500 papers and collecting more than $100,000 in donations. New records were set this year with papers sold at more than 350 locations – including nearly every Starbucks in San Diego – by more than 1,600 volunteers.

Fantasy on Ice More than 35,000 people skated through the holidays last year, with all proceeds benefitting the Peckham Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders. Now in its 15th year, Rady Children’s Hospital Fantasy on Ice has become San Diego’s most celebrated winter tradition.

The Auxiliary Makes a Difference! In fiscal year 2011, the Auxiliary raised more the $1.38 million! These funds were meaningfully used to help children and their families in these areas: • Autism Development Institute/Developmental Disabilities • Chadwick Center for Children & Families • Chaplaincy/Bereavement Services • Craniofacial Services • Dermatology • Diabetes/Endocrinology • Ernest Hahn Critical Care • Heart Institute • Healing Environment • Helen Bernardy Center (Rady Children’s Convalescent Hospital) • Infectious Disease • NICU • Orthopedics • Peckham Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders • Psychosocial Programs • Sam S. and Rose Stein Emergency Care Center • Speech/Hearing • Trauma Center

n 2007, Rady Children's set an ambitious goal to raise $220 million by December 2012 to fund four critical areas. One of these priorities was the completion of our Acute Care Pavilion (see page 5), that now, thanks to your support, is home to the Peckham Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, the Warren Family Surgical Center, the Viterbi Outpatient Clinic and Carley's Magical Gardens. Today, we are proud to report that a total of $208 million has been raised, which helped us bring the new Pavilion to life, provide the most comprehensive care and advanced technology, and support discovery through research and teaching. These three core components — Care, Technology and Discovery — define The Campaign for Rady Children's. We still must raise $12 million to reach our goal. Helping us to the finish line are The Campaign for Rady Children's Honorary Chairs Tracy and Trevor Hoffman, who are longtime supporters of Rady Children's and advocates for children. The Hoffmans are joined by three more Honorary Chairs, former patients who survived life-threatening conditions and who represent Care, Technology and Discovery. Kassidy, Ian and Zara are the faces of The Campaign for Rady Children's.

18 Rady Children’s Magazine

$*(' ixteen-year-old Kassidy Brewer represents Care. With the help of teams of doctors, nurses and therapists, Kassidy is making a remarkable comeback from a massive brain hemorrhage that left her in a coma for three months. When she regained consciousness, Kassidy spent five weeks working with physical and speech therapists at Rady Children’s, relearning how to walk, speak and eat. Multiple surgeries followed, including an 11-hour procedure to cut off blood flow to the abnormal mass of blood vessels that caused the hemorrhage. Kassidy still receives follow-up care and recently teamed up with a service dog named Chase that helps her keep her balance. Kassidy continues to impress with her recovery, recently earning a second-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do.


“There’s one word for the doctors at Rady Children’s… amazing!” Kassidy says. “They will forever be in my heart, and, hopefully, we’ll keep in touch for a very long time.”

+'$,-%.%/) an Quinones, 14, represents Technology. Ian’s heart stopped while in gym class. He was rushed to Rady Children’s where doctors induced a coma, and placed him on an ECMO machine to stabilize his heart. ECMO, or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, is advanced technology that circulates blood outside the body. When Ian was stable, Rady Children’s cardiologists performed a radiofrequency catheter ablation procedure in which a catheter was threaded up through Ian’s leg and into the heart. Radiofrequency energy was targeted to the pathways causing the abnormal heart rhythm, destroying those pathways. In Ian’s case, technology truly saved his life.


“When I woke up in the Hospital I was surrounded by machines and cords were plugged in my nose and attached to my arms,” Ian says. “But the doctors and nurses were so nice and welcoming that they made it easier. They saved my life.”

#"!$%&'() punky 4-year-old Zara Brazel represents Discovery. In 2009 Zara was diagnosed with a deadly form of childhood cancer and spent seven months receiving chemotherapy as part of a clinical trial to treat her form of leukemia. Rady Children’s, UC San Diego Medical School, and a network of hospitals worldwide are members of the Children’s Oncology Group (COG). This elite group discovers lifesaving treatments and improves outcomes for children with cancer by sharing critical information gathered through clinical trials. By actively participating in this network of shared knowledge, Rady Children’s is fulfilling its obligation to provide access to the very latest research for every child. Thanks to the treatment she received during her clinical trial, Zara is thriving with no signs of cancer.


“I think research is very important because without doing more research and developing new treatments for children, who knows where Zara would have been today,” says Zara’s mother, Colette. For more information on how you can be a part of the Campaign, visit www.HelpSDkids.org or call 858-966-5804. Rady Children’s Magazine 19

Our Community Making Miracles Corporate Support: Making compassion company policy. San Diego businesses have always had a heart for children – and for Rady Children’s. And for good reason. Companies find that supporting Rady Children’s increases employee morale, enriches business opportunities and strengthens community awareness. Community Involvement: Friends helping friends. It feels so good to know you’ve made a difference in the life of a child. That’s why it’s no surprise that individuals, clubs and groups of friends help raise money for Rady Children’s.

Making Fundraising" FUN! The impact of support on the Hospital is serious, but getting there is the fun part! Events range from bake sales and dance marathons to toy drives. Best of all, businesses and community groups love the way events bring everyone closer together, joined in a new spirit of philanthropy that makes everyone feel good!

By raising at least $500 a year for Rady Children’s, individuals, community groups and businesses/corporation also become members of our Miracle Makers Program, and those contributing $5,000 or more annually are honored as members of our Miracle Makers Council (see pages 21-22). For more information about how your business can take part, call 858-966-5988.

2011 Miracle Maker Honorees Outstanding Corporate Miracle Maker: Tower Glass Since 2006, Tower Glass has raised money for Rady Children’s through the annual “The Steve Open” golf tournament. Inviting vendors and partners to play, the tournament has grown from small to truly impressive. Over the years, Tower Glass has raised $186,950. Outstanding Community Miracle Maker: San Diego Professionals Against Cancer The San Diego Professionals Against Cancer is dedicated to generating monies for cancer research, patient treatment and services through events such as their flagship San Diego Festival of Beer. Over the years, the group has provided funds to purchase such important equipment as remote patient cardiac monitors and five Alaris Patient Controlled Pumps. Most recently, the group donated $100,000 to our MRI Center (see page 6). Most Creative Miracle Maker: Mike Esparza Every year, disc jockey Mike Esparza and team host the annual “MikeyThon,” a 28-hour, commercial-free version of their hit 20 Rady Children’s Magazine

morning show to support Rady Children’s Autism Discovery Institure (ADI). Mike was inspired to give back to the ADI after his son, Jake, now 4 years old, was diagnosed with autism. Over the years, listeners have helped to raise more than $95,000 to help Rady Children’s find better treatments for autism spectrum disorder with the goal of finding a cure. Junior Miracle Maker: Ryan O’Neill In 2005, when he was 9 years old, Ryan O’Neill had a great idea: He would sell handmade pencil toppers at craft fairs, making homework more fun for kids – and donate a portion of the proceeds to help other children. In 2008, he began making those donations to Rady Children’s, purchasing toys, games, goods, stuffed animals and his Pencil Bug products. This past December, he raised $5,130 to purchase 1,800 teddy bears for patients. This little boy with a dream to help kids and make homework fun is now 15 and has had his story included in three books by bestselling authors.

or more than half a century, Rady Children’s physicians have been on the front lines – caring for patients, doing research and helping families cope with illness and injuries. Our affiliated physicians – pediatric specialists and pediatricians – work tirelessly to do everything they can for each child in their care. Through our Physician Partnership, they do even more. The following Rady Children’s-affiliated physicians have given generously in support of a variety of critical initiatives, research and equipment. We give a special thank you to each and every one of the physicians who are a part of our Physician Partnership.

Volunteer Services The volunteer leadership who serve on our Boards (pages 3-4) inspire us with their knowledge, generosity and vision for the future. Our Hospital volunteers inspire us with the very same qualities, demonstrated through their gifts of time and wisdom. In fact, volunteers are at the heart of our Rady Children’s family. As a volunteer, the difference you can make is profound. Your gift of time will help us provide the highest possible quality of service to our patients, families, staff and communities. We invite you to be a part of our family of doctors, nurses, social workers, therapists, technicians and staff – all dedicated to making a difference in the life of a child. The San Diego Union-Tribune readers ranked Rady Children’s number 2 among the top places in the county to volunteer according to the Union-Tribune’s “San Diego’s Best 2011.” “We have volunteers that have been with us for more than 30 years and have given back thousands of hours of service to the Hospital; then we have young volunteers that are just starting out who want to explore the pediatric healthcare profession,” says Volunteer Services Manager Sylvie Sneep. “There are programs, like our activity rooms, that we could not operate without the help of our dedicated volunteers.” Rady Children’s volunteer program has more than 450 dedicated volunteers, some as young as 14 years old and reaching the age of 94.

Volunteers donated 45,880 hours of time in fiscal year 2011. That’s the equivalent of an $979,997 gift to Rady Children’s!
