The Foundation works toward creating a collaborative environment of improvement among member practices to deliver the highest quality care for all children.

We Support

  • Collaboration among pediatric practices to improve children’s health in the community.
  • Measurable, transparent quality improvement across practices to ensure the highest quality of care for approximately 145,000 children & their families
  • Implementation of robust patient and family-centered medical homes


To improve health outcomes for children by fostering a stronger culture of quality improvement within pediatric care through meaningful change and actionable measures.


The Foundation desires to be the means for pediatricians in our community to improve the quality of care within their practice, to raise consumer awareness on health issues, and to voice common barriers and concerns to achieving better children’s health.
