Length: 4 pages (1119 Words)
CHOP has been very successful in providing pediatric care to the regions of Philadelphia and the United States as a whole. It is because they have been ranked as the number one children’s hospital in the United States by a world report (Raphael, 2015). In fact, they have been listed six years in a row which is very impressive. Such ranking clearly indicates that CHOP is a successful pediatric hospital. CHOP has been recognized for many things which include research advanced pediatric medicine, teaching center and a patient child care center. The company has also expanded into many branches developing its networks so as to ease the pressure on the main branch at Philadelphia. Its success started in 1885 when it began as a standalone hospital serving the residents of Philadelphia. The branch grew in popularity, and Dr. Steven saw the need to expand and have more branches operating in different states to serve more people.
Its route to success has been characterizing by specialized care for children from birth to adolescents and to make the service more professional; a single doctor would handle a kid to adolescent. The demand for pediatric care increased in the 1960s and CHOP had to expand and start various programs that would treat different diseases. They started an average of six programs handling diseases such as sickle cell to anemia in children and even adults.
