First Look: Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Tech Team Receives National Ranking for Best Hospital IT Department

Whether repairing a doctor’s iPhone or setting up a massive, secure networking infrastructure in multiple locations across the nation’s second largest metropolitan area, the Information Services (IS) Department at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) is up to the task.

That’s the official word handed down today from the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Information Services team.

It’s the reason CHLA’s IS team is ranked this year as one of the nation’s Best Hospital IT Departments by Healthcare IT News. These awards, published annually by the magazine, are an employee-driven benchmark recognizing how well hospitals and health systems integrate and innovate technology to support physicians and hospital staff in providing the best care possible.

“I’m so proud of our team and what they’ve been able to accomplish – and I’m even more excited for the amazing IT projects underway,” says Steve Garske, PhD, CHLA senior vice president and chief information officer. “This award affirms our goal that Children’s Hospital Los Angeles be a leader in the health care technology sphere, and the best part is knowing that programs we implement will dramatically impact our patients, their families, and our amazing caregivers. Our IT team is the best in the country – this is because we live our mission every day to create hope and build healthier futures for our children.”
