The Children’s Health Alliance is a not-for-profit association of private practice pediatricians throughout the Portland/Vancouver metropolitan area. In light of the unique nature of children’s medicine, these pediatricians joined together in 1998 to contract with managed care health plans.

Today, the Alliance contracts with many types of health plans, organizes and implements quality improvement initiatives focused on children’s health care, and provides other services to assist private practice pediatricians in providing quality, cost-effective care to patients.

The Children’s Health Alliance is the sister organization of the Children’s Health Foundation. To learn more, visit our website at
