our mission
To make a world of difference in the lives of children, adolescents and their families by integrating medical care, education and research to provide the highest quality care and service to our
diverse community.
our history
Founded in 1901, Childrens Hospital Los Angeles has been treating the most seriously ill and
injured children in Los Angeles and beyond for more than a century, and it is acknowledged
throughout the United States and around the world for its leadership in pediatric and adolescent
health. Childrens Hospital is one of America’s premier teaching hospitals, through its 75-year
association with the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California. The
Saban Research Institute of Childrens Hospital Los Angeles is a national leader in pediatric
research.
Since 1990, U.S. News & World Report’s panel of board-certified pediatricians has named
Childrens Hospital Los Angeles one of the top pediatric facilities in the nation. Child magazine
also has ranked Childrens Hospital Los Angeles among the top children’s hospitals in America.
Childrens Hospital Los Angeles is building a landmark inpatient facility. Stories about the New
Hospital Building carry this icon.

T he good news is that the overall survival rate for childhood cancer is now at 80 percent.
However, cancer remains the leading cause of death by disease among children and adolescents nationwide. Confronted with all our attempts to defeat it, cancer evolves and adapts.
We can never be complacent.
We are fortunate to have one of the finest pediatric cancer centers in the world right in our
own community: the Childrens Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases. This amazing Center of
Excellence has contributed significant discoveries that have changed the statistics of childhood
cancer and blood diseases — with 85 percent of those findings applicable to adult cancer. You
will read about some of the Center’s efforts in this issue of Imagine.
A world-class program deserves a world-class facility. Private philanthropy has helped us
fund outstanding scientific talent. Now we must provide the physical space. When completed
in 2009, the New Hospital Building will be a cutting-edge, family-centered environment.
Please consider making a gift to support its construction — every gift will go toward creating
a better future for children and their families. •

Physician-scientists at the Childrens Center for Cancer and
Blood Diseases are changing the survival rates of pediatric cancer.
&
progress promise
It was four days before
Tracey and David Buelow would
close escrow on their new home in
Calabasas. As they packed boxes and
planned their future, their four-yearold daughter, Emily, seemed to be
fighting a typical cold. Within a few
days, the preschooler became unusually lethargic and began developing
painful mouth sores. When her pediatrician spotted broken blood vessels around her chest, he knew this
wasn’t just a virus and immediately
referred her to Childrens Hospital
Los Angeles. That was the day the
Buelows’ lives changed forever.
Emily was diagnosed with acute
lymphocytic leukemia and admitted
to the renowned pediatric medical
facility for treatment. “When you
hear those words and you look at
your child, your first reaction is that
this has to be some kind of mistake…this can’t be happening,” says
Mr. Buelow. “All you want is to help
your child, and the best you can do
is take her where she can get the best
possible care.”
At the Childrens Center for
Cancer and Blood Diseases, one of
the nation’s largest pediatric hematology/oncology programs, Emily was
treated by international leaders in the
field of pediatric cancer and received
innovative treatment seldom available at other facilities.
The Childrens Center for Cancer
and Blood Diseases treats more than
half of all children in Los Angeles
County with these diseases, diagnosing about 500 cases of cancer and
another 500 cases of blood diseases
and clotting disorders annually. It
performs more than 60 percent of all
pediatric bone marrow transplants in
Los Angeles County, while its hematology program sees the largest number of patients with sickle cell disease
and thalassemia on the West Coast.
“What makes us unique are our
multi-disciplinary teams who are
experts in the diagnosis, treatment
and follow-up care of each patient,”
explains Stuart E. Siegel, MD, Center
director and head of the hospital’s
Division of Hematology/Oncology.

“Our philosophy is to quickly mobilize our extensive research to find the
best answers for our patients.”
The Buelows’ experience provides
a unique perspective on the treatment available at Childrens Hospital
because of a terrible twist of fate. At
age seven, Emily had a relapse of her
leukemia. A year later, the unthinkable happened. She was recovering
from a bone marrow transplant when
her younger brother, Max, was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a bone
cancer.
“I was in shock, just numb,” recalls
Tracey Buelow, “but as a parent, you
have to put every emotion on hold to
manage the business at hand.”
The business at hand included
three months of hospitalization for
Emily and intensive chemotherapy
and surgery to remove a tumor on
Max’s eighth rib bone. These two
youngsters exemplify the incredible

atric cancer, as well as the questions
that remain unanswered.
Emily, currently in eighth grade,
has been cancer-free since her transplant. She is an exuberant teenager
who loves to paint and play with her
younger sisters, Ilsa and Lena. Unlike
most kids her age, she has a quiet
maturity that comes from losing her
brother, her best friend.
“We did everything together,” says
Emily, recalling Max, who bravely
battled Ewing’s Sarcoma for four
years and passed away in March 2006
at the age of 11. “We had so much fun
in the pool, swimming and doing
cannonballs. We rode our go-carts.
We sat in my room and just talked.”
With tremendous advances in
the past few decades, 80 percent of
pediatric cancers are now treatable.
“Another 20 percent remain untreatable, which is unacceptable,” notes
Dr. Siegel, professor and vice chair
of pediatrics at the Keck School
of Medicine of the University of
Southern California (USC).
Childrens Hospital has been a
pioneer in pediatric cancer and
blood diseases for the last 50 years.
Research and clinical teams are
working hand-in-hand to find better
treatments for leukemia, neuroblastoma, bone and soft tissue tumors,
brain tumors, retinoblastoma, hemophilia, thalassemia and sickle cell
disease.
The hospital was the first in the
West to provide modern chemotherapy to children with leukemia.
It developed the now-standard treatment for acute leukemia and neuroblastoma (a nervous system tumor),
and created novel limb-salvage techniques to save the legs of children
with tumors of the pelvic bones. Its
physician-scientists have embarked
on innovative research focused on
such issues as: what turns cancer cells
on and off, why some cancers don’t
respond to certain therapies, the use
of gene therapy to treat sickle cell
disease and thalassemia, and treatments that target cancer cells without
destroying healthy cells.
An ambitious clinical trials program allows discoveries from the
laboratories of The Saban Research
Institute of Childrens Hospital Los
Angeles to reach children like Emily
and Max more quickly. Through the
USC-CHLA Institute of Pediatric
Clinical Research, physician-scientists have been able to initiate several
first-ever trials.
Doctors and scientists in the
Childrens Center for Cancer and
Blood Diseases serve in key leadership roles with the Children’s
Oncology Group, a cooperative of
237 pediatric research centers nationwide. In addition, Childrens Hospital
is home to four national consortia
that coordinate pediatric cancer
research activities across the country
— ensuring its patients access to the
latest therapies. (See page 14.)
With completion of the New
Hospital Building in 2009, the
Cancer Center will have expanded,
state-of-the-art facilities to continue its groundbreaking work.
An entire floor and a half will be
devoted to patients with cancer and
blood diseases. It will grow from 44
acute inpatient beds to 80, while its
Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant
Unit will house 14 beds, up from the
current 11. (See page 8.)
Knowing the importance of
research, the Buelows have established the Max of a Million Dreams
Foundation for Cancer Research,
and are working to fund a grant to
the Bone and Soft Tissue Tumor
Research Program at Childrens
Hospital, among other projects.
“We are so grateful for the care our
children received, we want to be
able to give something back,” says
Mr. Buelow.
Funding will help such physician-scientists as Leo Mascarenhas,
MD, an oncologist specializing in
bone and soft tissue tumors, who
met Max when his cancer had spread
and conventional chemotherapy and
surgery were no longer viable. Max
wasn’t expected to live more than a
couple of weeks, but Dr. Mascarenhas
was hopeful. He was working on a
new drug combination, which the
Buelows decided to try. Max lived
another nine months.
“I got to know Max very well.
I knew his aspirations, his dreams,
his love for his family,” says Dr.
Mascarenhas, an assistant professor
of pediatrics at the Keck School of
Medicine. “He was a fighter, and he
made me a better physician by allowing me to leave no stone unturned.
We will continue to research, to find
new treatments — and one day we
will find a cure.” •

Childrens Hospital Los Angeles. All alone, she knew she had to stay in
this special, protective room so her immune system could rebuild itself
following her stem cell transplant for acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
But she missed her family.
Then she heard a baby cry next door. Her young neighbor had moved
in just days before for his own stem cell transplant to treat a genetic
disease. Rocio buzzed for the nurse, who immediately came to ask what
she needed. “Not me — the baby — he’s crying,” Rocio said.
Suddenly, Rocio had a job to do. “I watched over him every night,”
she recalls — just the way the doctors, nurses and her family watched
over her.
“That job lifted her spirits and helped her get well,” says her mother,
Mirella Deleon.
Some spirit lifting was needed. Rocio had been battling leukemia
since she was four-and-a-half. Two years of chemotherapy knocked
out the cancer temporarily. When it returned, physicians in the HSCT
Program recommended a stem cell transplant.
At one time, doctors often waited to suggest a transplant until a
child with leukemia relapsed a third or fourth time. “Now we are able
to identify which cases are at high risk for a relapse and intervene
earlier,” explains Neena Kapoor, MD, director of the Clinical HSCT
Program.
Rocio was one of those high-risk cases. Her parents, Mirella and
Mario Deleon, hoped that one of Rocio’s three siblings — Karina,
Mario and Guadalupe — might be a match to provide bone marrow
for a transplant. In the meantime, Rocio started another round of
chemotherapy. Unfortunately, none of her siblings was a match. Then
came another relapse. Rocio’s life was in the balance.
Fortunately, she was in excellent hands.
Since its inception in 1983, the HSCT Program at Childrens Hospital
has performed nearly 1,000 transplants. More than half of those
involve children under five years old, many as young as one month
old — a specialty for this experienced program, part of the Division
of Research Immunology/Bone Marrow Transplantation (BMT) in the
Childrens Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases.

Child-sized, construction-paper handprints line the walls of the special
place that the Hematology-Oncology
Psychosocial Education (HOPE)
Program has created for families
at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles.
These colorful artworks in the
HOPE Resource Center remind visitors
that, on average, about 1,000 children
are treated annually at the Childrens
Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases.
Many of the handprints were
created years ago by children now
cured of their diseases, representing
the HOPE Program’s groundbreaking
efforts to support patients through
treatment and long-term survival.
It is a task both exhilarating and
demanding because 80 percent of
all children with cancer now survive. Under an umbrella of services
initiated in 1975, HOPE’s co-directors, Ernest Katz, PhD, and Kathleen
Ruccione, MPH, RN, FAAN, CPON, work
to enhance the quality of life for these
young patients. The first comprehensive program of its kind nationwide,
HOPE remains the world leader in
psychosocial research and services.
“Children can’t postpone their
development because they get cancer,” explains Ms. Ruccione, an associate professor of clinical pediatrics at
the Keck School of Medicine of the
University of Southern California, and
chair of the Children’s Oncology Group
Nursing Discipline. “The life they live
while they’re ill becomes part of what
shapes them.”
It also becomes part of their family’s
history. HOPE is a safety net for all
these people as they confront diagnosis, treatment and life after therapy.
To help at each stage, Susan
Gantan, MPH, coordinator of health
education services, has assembled an
extensive library of print and online
materials. “It’s often reassuring to a
family to have written materials on
their greatest needs to take home,” she
says. She has developed an Intranet
website viewable in the HOPE Resource
Center. With funding from the Ronald
McDonald House Charities, it will
become available to the public online
later this year.
Other organizations providing
key support for the HOPE Program
have included the Audrey and Sydney

Thirteen-year-old Marshall Quackenbush is a natural-born tinkerer and inventor.
He started building the treehouse in his Corona del Mar backyard when he was
eight. He recently constructed his clubhouse and installed a sink. Armed with his
own tool kit, he built a trailer for his motor scooter so he can go “trash digging”
in the neighborhood and find odd things to fuse together and take apart.
He shares his sense of invention with one of his doctors. Robert C. Seeger, MD,
deputy division head for research in the Division of Hematology/Oncology at
Childrens Hospital Los Angeles and professor of pediatrics at the Keck School
of Medicine of the University of Southern California, has developed breakthrough
treatments for neuroblastoma, a nervous system tumor outside the brain.
After Marshall was diagnosed with neuroblastoma at 15 months of age, he
had a bone marrow transplant, followed by additional treatments. In 1999, his
neuroblastoma returned. His parents, Shirley and Steve Quackenbush, long-time
Orange County residents, quickly discovered their son’s best chance for survival
was at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles.
“It’s not until you’re in a position to really need the care for your child that

Now, after three different treatments developed by the New Approaches to

“Power Rangers blast out the neuroblastomas,” explains Carlo, who
loves to dress up as the Red Power

It’s a fight Carlo has been waging since January 2005, when he was

new treatments for pediatric cancers.
Their work is critical because most
anti-cancer drugs are developed for
adults, and pharmaceutical companies perform little to no research in
pediatrics. Although overall survival
rates for children’s cancers stand at
80 percent, that leaves one in five
children who don’t survive with
standard treatment. For some cancers, survival rates are much lower.
Children with high-risk neuroblastoma, like Carlo, have only a 40 to
50 percent survival rate.
“We must have more effective

We haven’t won the battle yet,” says
Robert C. Seeger, MD, deputy division head in the hospital’s Division

universities in each consortium collaborate on research and clinical trials to test new treatments in patients.
“I’m not aware of any other oncology program that has so many clinical trial consortia headquartered in
one place,” says Dr. Seeger, who heads
the Cancer Program of The Saban
Research Institute of Childrens
Hospital Los Angeles.
He has been involved with the
New Approaches to Neuroblastoma
Therapy (NANT) consortium since
its beginning in
2000. Funded

transplantation of the patient’s circulating blood stem cells.
Similarly, the Therapeutic
Advances for Childhood Leukemia
consortium in the USC-CHLA
Institute for Pediatric Clinical
Research (IPCR) develops and carries out early-phase clinical trials in
patients with recurrent leukemia.
“We study cancer cells to learn
what makes them tick,” explains
C. Patrick Reynolds, MD, PhD,
director of IPCR’s Developmental
Therapeutics Program and professor
of pediatrics and pathology at the
Keck School of Medicine. “We especially look at the differences between
cancer cells that chemotherapy can
16 | imagine spring 07
eliminate and those that manage to
return.”
One of the most promising drugs
is fenretinide, a synthetic relative of
vitamin A that appears to be potentially effective against neuroblastoma
and leukemia, as well as certain adult
cancers. NANT is conducting a Phase
I trial of a new powdered form of
fenretinide that can be mixed with
food or drink, and tastes like cookie
dough, making it easier for children
to take and absorb.
Researchers also are studying how
combining drugs can more effectively kill otherwise resistant cancer
cells. Fenretinide, for example, soon
will be tested in partnership with
other drugs. In addition, researchers
hope to unlock the DNA of tumor
cells. Already, scientists at The Saban
Research Institute have identified
certain genes that can help predict
which neuroblastoma patients will
respond to standard therapy, and
which won’t. “What’s coming is a
new era of personalized medicine,”
says Dr. Seeger.
Another groundbreaking area of
research: brain tumors. Jonathan
Finlay, MB, ChB, clinical director of the Neural Tumors Program
at Childrens Hospital and himself
a cancer survivor, has spent two
decades working to improve the
survival rate of young children with
brain tumors without using radiation
therapy, which can cause severe and
irreversible damage to intellectual
functioning.
The worldwide “Head Start” consortium studies Dr. Finlay founded
have succeeded in dropping radiation from standard therapy in young
children, while still improving the
cure rate from 10 to 50 percent. The
next series of Head Start trials, set to
begin this year, will incorporate lowdose “maintenance” therapies after
treatment with high-dose chemotherapy and marrow rescue.
“I truly believe this is the way we’ll
make the next big jump in improving the cure rate for these children,”
says Dr. Finlay, a professor of pediatrics, neurology and neurosurgery
at the Keck School of Medicine, and
head of the International Central
Nervous System Germ Cell Tumor
Consortium at Childrens Hospital.
Carlo Santiago, meanwhile, has
come a long way since arriving at
Childrens Hospital two years ago
with his parents from their home in
Hong Kong. Carlo loves to do martial arts moves, play the piano and,
of course, watch the Power Rangers.
But his battle isn’t over. Although the
standard therapies for neuroblastoma
wiped out almost all of his cancer
cells, a few cells have remained.
Carlo has participated in several
NANT clinical trials and currently is
participating in the fenretinide trial.
He and his mother, Toni Santiago,
have been staying in Los Angeles for
the trials while his father, Sam, works
in Hong Kong.
“These clinical trials are so
important for the future,” says Mrs.
Santiago. “It’s not easy, but Carlo is
a fighter. And Childrens Hospital is
fighting along with us.” •

Angeles for every new business policy
it writes — up to $100,000 a year.
Mrs. Garfi-Partridge did her own
research and discovered that launching
a scientific career often was harder for
women. As a female business owner
in a male-dominated field, she related
to those hurdles, and decided to reach
out to enterprising women.
Judi Garfi-Partridge
The first recipient of her funding
at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles was
Anat Erdreich-Epstein, MD, PhD, who
is investigating ways to inhibit angiogenesis, the process by which cancerous tumors create blood vessels to
feed their own growth.
“This support at the beginning
of my research career was critical
for my subsequent success,” says Dr.
Erdreich-Epstein, associate professor
of pediatrics and pathology at the Keck
School of Medicine of the University
of Southern California. With three
years of start-up funds, she was able to
generate enough data on the biology
of new blood vessel growth in pediatric brain tumors to obtain federal
funding. “People like Judi, who invest
in young investigators, are extremely
important for the future of biomedical
research,” she says.
In the past few years, a few children of Eastwood employees have
developed brain tumors. “We’ve experienced the importance of this work
firsthand,” says Mrs. Garfi-Partridge.
Her current funding recipient is
Elizabeth Lawlor, MD, PhD, who is
attacking cancer from another angle
— cancer stem cells.
Dr. Lawlor’s laboratory in The
Saban Research Institute of Childrens
Hospital Los Angeles is developing
tools to identify and study the Ewing’s
Sarcoma family of tumors (ET). These
bone and soft tissue tumors primarily
occur in adolescents and young adults.
Most patients with ET will go into
remission under current therapies,
but one-third experience a relapse,
and less than 10 percent survive that
relapse. “We think what’s happening is
that we’re not killing the cancer stem
cells,” says Dr. Lawlor.
Whether or not all cancers originate
from wayward stem cells, the most
aggressive cancer cells behave like
stem cells in many ways and are able
to replicate themselves. Uncovering
such mysteries takes a willingness
to experiment — and the support to
do so. “That’s where Judi has made
a phenomenal difference,” says Dr.
Lawlor, assistant professor of pediatrics and pathology at the Keck School
of Medicine.
Mrs. Garfi-Partridge is proud of
that difference. So are her employees,
one of whom is her brother. “Everyone
needs to be part of something bigger
than yourself,” she says. “I can’t imagine doing anything that would have
more impact.” •

A global company that makes
magic for children is helping to shape
the future of a children’s hospital
internationally recognized for
making children healthier.
Childrens Hospital Los Angeles
has received a $5 million gift
from The Walt Disney Company
Foundation to aid in construction
of the New Hospital Building, a
state-of-the-art, 460,000 -square foot
inpatient facility scheduled for completion in 2009.
The gift — the largest-ever to the
hospital from a corporate foundation — will be recognized in special
places for families throughout the
New Hospital Building. A total of
26 family alcoves will be located on
five inpatient floors, each providing
6

a quiet retreat for families near their
children’s rooms.
“At Disney, we like to say we’re
in the business of magic,” Robert A.
Iger, president and CEO of The Walt
Disney Company, told the crowd at
the press conference to announce the
gift in October 2006. “This hospital
has always been in the same business.
It creates miracles for families. That
is true magic.”
Accepting the donation were
Childrens Hospital President and
CEO Richard D. Cordova and Los
Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.
The presentation took place in the
hospital’s John Stauffer Lobby, which
opened in 2001 and includes many
child-friendly elements designed
by the Disney Imagineers. “When
children enter this building, there
is no question in their minds it’s for
them,” Mr. Cordova said.
Childrens Hospital, along with
pediatric hospitals and wings nationwide, receives a generous donation
of Disney DVDs, toys, blankets and
merchandise each year. “We share
a longstanding commitment to the
well-being of children — each in
our own special way,” added Mr.
Cordova. “It’s natural that we
work together.”
Mayor Villaraigosa noted, “You
can’t visit this hospital and not be
blown away by the commitment
of the staff.” He thanked The Walt
Disney Company, adding, “I hope
this gift will inspire other corporate
citizens.”
Speaking for families, Abdy
Aispuro noted that her husband,
Enrique, was treated at Childrens
Hospital for a growth hormone
deficiency as a child. “When our son
became ill, we knew this was where
we had to come.” Now, three of their
four children have been treated here.
“No words can express our gratitude
for the excellent care we received,”
she said.
Mrs. Aispuro also addressed The
Walt Disney Company. “To Disney,
on behalf of all the families who have
been touched by your generosity,
thank you. God bless you.” •

Center, where teens can battle cancer cells in the computer game, Re-Mission.

Childrens Hospital Los Angeles applies some creative
tools to the fight against pediatric cancer and other diseases.
playing to win
An exciting universe has been
born: a place where medicine and computer technology intersect. In this fantastic world, adolescents with cancer
become avenging crusaders, and their
computers serve as a control unit for
a bold nanobot named Roxxi and her
holographic sidekick, Smitty.
Deployed inside animated teens
battling cancer, their mission is to
destroy evil colonies of malignant cells
and subdue the dark forces of infection
that otherwise will wreak havoc from
within.
Welcome to Re-Mission, a daredevil
computer game developed by HopeLab,
a Redwood City-based, non-profit
research group focused on improving the quality of
life for young people with chronic illnesses. In 2005,
HopeLab asked the Division of Hematology/Oncology
at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles to help investigate ReMission’s effect on cancer-related knowledge and treatment compliance among adolescents with cancer.
The teens were randomly assigned to play Re-Mission
or another computer game for four months. They
answered questionnaires about the games before they
started playing, after one month and at the end of the
study. Results at Childrens Hospital and 33 other medical centers worldwide indicate that playing Re-Mission
significantly increased patients’ adherence to therapy
regimens. They took their pills 15 percent more often
and had levels of chemotherapy drugs in their blood
20 percent higher than the control group.

That is no small achievement.
“Chemotherapy isn’t fun,” says Colleen
McCarthy, RN, MSN, a clinical research
nurse for the Leukemia/Lymphoma
Program in the Childrens Center for
Cancer and Blood Diseases. “Teenagers
wonder why they should keep taking their
medications even after they feel well and
the cancer appears to be gone. Unless they
get a good explanation, they’re likely to
slack off.”
Re-Mission serves as both entertainment and education. “The game teaches
them that microscopic cancer cells could
still be there, just waiting to grow,” says
Ms. McCarthy.
In the Hematology-Oncology Psycho­
social Education (HOPE) Resource Center,
teens can drop in to play Re-Mission on
a small fleet of computers. “This game is
another great interactive resource we
can offer our patients and families in
their battle against cancer,” says Susan
Gantan, MPH, health education services
coordinator.
Monzerratt Patino was among the
patients assigned to Re-Mission. Now a
high school sophomore and power forward on the girls’ basketball team, she was
diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in
2005. “Before I played the game, I didn’t
22 | imagine spring 07
really know how sick I could get if I didn’t take my medicine,”
she says. “The characters keep reminding you to kill all the
cancer and bacteria cells. If you leave too many behind, or
take too long on a mission, the kid starts to get sick again.”
Childrens Hospital also is looking closely at the usefulness
of virtual reality (VR) — entire 3D environments — in helping children and teens with pain management.
Wearing head-mounted display units that resemble hightech helmets with glasses, children can race down a mountain road, enter snowy wonderlands or lush rainforests and
become so immersed in playful alternate realities that they
are empowered to distract themselves from the usual pain
and distress associated with their illness or routine medical
procedures.
“Unfortunately, applications of the technology preceded
research into how and why it works,” says Jeffrey Gold, PhD,
a member of the hospital’s Comfort, Pain Management and
Palliative Care team in the Department of Anesthesiology
Critical Care Medicine. “So I try to design studies that deconstruct VR and address these questions.”
Using questions to measure pain and anxiety, Dr. Gold
interviewed 20 youngsters about to have an intravenous (IV)
needle placed. “Their mean anxiety score was as high as kids
with a clinical generalized anxiety disorder,” he says. “So the
need is very real.”
When he compared participants who used an immersion
game to those who did not, he found that children fared much
better if they played a VR game before and after IV setup.
Those in the standard-of-care group reported four times the
pain intensity compared with the VR group.
He is conducting another study with newly diagnosed
leukemia patients, whose treatment involves three serial lumbar punctures, spaced one month apart. Participants undergo
their first puncture with (or without) VR immersion; their
second under the opposite condition; and a third with the
option of using VR. “So we’ll begin to learn whether a benefit
persists or changes over time,” explains Dr. Gold, an assistant
professor of anesthesiology and pediatrics at the Keck School
of Medicine.
The integration of computer games and healing is a natural, says Ms. McCarthy. “It reinforces all the right messages,
using a medium that kids like and understand.”
Or as Monzerratt says of Re-Mission: “It was fun.” •

fiscal year 2006
highlights
In Fiscal Year 2006 (July 1, 2005 – June 30, 2006),
Childrens Hospital Los Angeles continued to reach out to
children and their families through integrated medical
care, education and research. Highlights include:
New Hospital Building
• In February 2006, hospital leaders completed an interior design review of the New Hospital Building, gathering feedback on design concepts, colors, furniture
and equipment from patients’ families, physicians,
nurses and other caregivers.
• Construction crews completed demolition of the Santa
Anita Research Building and adjacent parking structure to provide space for the new, 460,000-square foot
inpatient facility, scheduled for completion in 2009.
Shoring and excavation were completed, and crews
drilled the foundation piles.
Patient Care
• On June 14, 2006, in the second such historic procedure at Childrens Hospital within three years, a team
of 80 surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses and other
specialists separated conjoined twins Regina and
Renata Salinas Fierros, who were connected from the
lower chest to the pelvis. One-year-old Regina was
discharged on July 26 and Renata on Aug. 3.
• The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare
Organizations (JCAHO) made an unannounced onsite evaluation visit to Childrens Hospital — part of
JCAHO’s new, rigorous procedures. Childrens Hospital
received full accreditation from the nation’s dominant
accrediting body in health care.
• Childrens Hospital was one of only nine children’s
hospitals in the United States named to the first
Leapfrog Top Hospitals list, based on the Leapfrog
Hospital Quality and Safety Survey.
Research
• The Saban Research Institute of Childrens Hospital
Los Angeles received more than $25.6 million from the
42 | imagine spring 07
National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Fiscal Year 2005.
For the eighth consecutive year, The Saban Research
Institute ranked fifth in NIH funding nationwide
— and first in the western United States — among
25 stand-alone pediatric institutions.
• In January, Edward D. Gomperts, MD, became the
director of clinical research at Childrens Hospital and
associate director of The Saban Research Institute. He
is a clinical professor of pathology and pediatrics at the
Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern
California.
Education
• Eight local high school students were the first to participate in a new a six-week, donor-funded summer
internship at The Saban Research Institute. The program reflects a commitment to create opportunities
for under-represented minority students in biomedical
research.
• Sixty-one teens attended the inaugural session of
Camp CHLA in August 2006, a unique week-long
program that exposes high school students to health
care careers. The students heard presentations each
morning, then job shadowed throughout the hospital
each afternoon. They also received CPR instruction
and participated in hands-on skills labs. Nearly 300
employees volunteered for the program.
Leadership
• Walter B. Rose completed his exceptional term of
service to the hospital after 17 years on the Board of
Trustees, five years as Board co-chair and seven years
as co-chair of Living Proof: The Campaign for Childrens
Hospital Los Angeles.
• John D. “Jack” Pettker was elected to share Board leadership with co-chair Marion Anderson. Mr. Pettker
has served on the Board of Trustees since 1999, and
served as co-chair, with Trustee Paul Schaeffer, of
the successful campaign for the Childrens Center for
Cancer and Blood Diseases. •

Children. Our most precious resource.
And when theyre
’ terribly ill or seriously injured, we want the best care for them.
Childrens Hospital Los Angeles has been treating children and adolescents for more than 100 years. Today, our patient care, teaching and research make the hospital
an invaluable resource to the people of Los Angeles and children everywhere. When our state-of-the-art New Hospital Building is complete in 2009, it will be the
finest medical and surgical environment for seriously ill and injured children in the United States, and it will be a model family-centered environment in which children
and their families can heal and learn together. For information on how you can help, please contact Melissa DoVale at (323) 671-1706 or [email protected]
