A Note From Dr. Foley

"I wanted to work in a hospital dedicated to excellent clinical care in a setting where children come first. From physicians to nurses to respiratory therapists, to secretaries to social workers and child life therapists, our patients get state-of-the-art care in a setting close to home and focused on family. Since 1996, CHKD is part of my family."
