    Steve Worley, President and CEO


    2009: A Year of Renewal
    To All the Friends of Children’s Hospital:

          It’s great to kick off a New Year, and we’re especially excited about 2009, a year of
    renewal at Children’s Hospital. Despite the recent economic downturn, we’ve gotten off to
    a tremendous start to a year in which we have expanded our healthcare mission and offerings
    to better serve you.
          In February, Children’s Hospital and Touro Infirmary signed a healthcare system
    agreement creating a nonprofit, community-based, two-hospital healthcare system under our
    hospital’s parent corporation, Louisiana Children’s Medical Center (LCMC). Both hospitals
    will continue to operate as separate institutions and will remain locally owned and operated
    under the new system. As part of the agreement, LCMC will infuse at least $100 million in
    capital improvements at Touro over the next five years to maintain cutting-edge healthcare
    services and ensure procurement of state-of-the-art technology.
    I will remain as president and CEO of Children’s Hospital and LCMC, and in the coming
    months will hire a new Touro president who will report directly to me. The Louisiana
    attorney general must approve the transaction, and we
    expect to close by early June.
          In May, we’ll open our new Pediatric Intensive Care
                                                                     “Despite the recent economic downturn, we’ve
    Unit. Located on the sixth floor of our west tower, the          gotten off to a tremendous start to a year in
    9,456-square-foot state-of-the-art PICU features 18 beds,
    each in a private room. Every patient room is outfitted          which we have expanded our healthcare mission
    with cutting edge technology which will assist our staff in
    instantly providing the best available critical care.
                                                                     and offerings to better serve you.”
          This summer, Children’s Hospital will begin
    moving several services from its Main Campus to its Calhoun Campus (former site of
    DePaul Hospital). Eventually, outpatient orthopaedics as well as physical, occupational and
    speech therapies will move up Henry Clay Avenue. Additionally, The Parenting Center at
    Children’s Hospital will move to a new facility at the former site of Ecole Bilingue. The
    bigger space will allow us to host all of our Uptown classes at one location and offers much
    improved parking for our families.
          In the fall we’ll open our new Cardiac Care Unit. The 8,193 square-foot CCU will be
    on the first floor in the old PICU. It will feature 20 beds (10 in private rooms) for children –
    some just days old – who are recovering from heart surgery. The CCU previously shared 25
    beds with the PICU, but to better serve our patients, we are splitting the units so that each
    will have its own designated area in a larger space.
          Additionally, the re-opening of Kids First Louisa clinic will mark the last renovation of
    our Katrina-damaged properties.
          We’re very excited about each of the openings, and looking forward to remaining at the
    forefront of providing excellent healthcare to the children of New Orleans, Louisiana and
    the entire Gulf South. They shouldn’t have it any other way.
         Yours,




         Steve Worley

    Knocking Out NEC
    RIC study aims to identify bacteria associated with deadly
    intestinal disease in newborns

          Hundreds of premature babies are admitted each year to the
    Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Children’s Hospital. Nearly one
    in five is diagnosed with necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). The most
    common gastrointestinal emergency among newborns, NEC causes a
    life-threatening inflammation and destruction of the gastrointestinal
    tract. The disease often strikes when least expected and without much
    warning. Twenty to 50 percent of infants with NEC do not survive.
    Those who do often suffer long-term disabilities, including feeding
    intolerance, short gut syndrome and poor nutrition. However, investi-
    gators at The Research Institute for Children are conducting a study
    that they hope will lead to greater understanding about the cause of this
    devastating disease, and ultimately help in developing methods for the
    earlier detection, more effective treatment and perhaps even prevention.
          Lack of a clear understanding about what exactly causes the
    condition makes early diagnosis and effective treatment difficult.
    Bacteria are thought to play a role in the cause of NEC, but so far,
    research has not found a single, specific agent to be consistently related
    to the disease. But, the majority of previous studies used traditional
    bacterial culture techniques which we now know often fail to reveal up
    to 80 percent of the bacteria present in the intestinal tract.                         “Since premature infants are at increased risk for this disease,

The Dunstan Baby Language.
     In 1998 Priscilla Dunstan, an Australian violinist with an eidetic (photographic) memory for sound, noticed her baby made five
distinct reflex sounds which corresponded with physical needs – hunger, sleepiness, the need to be burped, the need to be changed
and lower gas discomfort. For instance, when he was hungry he made a sucking reflex that had a “Neh” sound, while a “Heh”
sound meant that he needed to be changed. Through research with more than 1,000 babies of 30-plus nationalities, she found every
newborn younger than three months speaks the universal “language” that can warn caretakers of their child’s need before they begin
to cry.
                                                          Ironically, Sammarco received a copy of the DVD as a shower gift, but
                                                     hadn’t watched it before Regan suggested it. After seeing it, she says it should
                                                     be “required viewing for all new mothers.”
                                                          “It was a life saver,” Sammarco said of the DVD. “Before, whenever
                                                     she began to cry, I fed her all the time, but she was trying to tell me she was
                                                     uncomfortable. But when we heard the “Eh” sound, we sat her up and began
                                                     patting her back. She let out a fraternity brother burp and looked at us like,
                                                     ‘Thank God! That’s what I’ve been trying to tell you.’
                                                           “As a new mom, it really gave me the biggest boost of confidence,” she
                                                     said. “I felt like parenting became much easier to manage.”
                                                          Regan said several parents have raved over the DVD’s immediate results
                                                     after checking it out from The Parenting Center’s library. Once a caregiver
                                                     can recognize the ‘word,’ they can begin soothing the child and meeting
                                                     their need before the screaming commences. When a new parent or caregiver
                                                     knows they are responding to their infant’s needs correctly, it builds esteem
                                                     and reduces stress for everyone in the home, she said.
                                                          “It’s an amazing discovery that results in less crying and discomfort for
                                                     the baby, not to mention less stress for parents. I’m so happy to share it with
                                                     new moms and dads because it makes the first three months with a newborn so
                                                     much easier.”

 All Aboard
      The 28th annual Sugarplum Ball was held at the New
 Orleans Public Belt Railroad engine terminal on Tchoupitoulas
 Street on March 14. This year’s black-tie gala, which honored
 long-time board member Susan Johnson, featured a silent
 auction, live music and cuisine from the area’s finest restaurants.
 Ball chairs Lynn Gibbons and Gwathmey Gomilla, with the
 help and support of NOPB General
 Manager Jim Bridger, created a truly
 fantastic and memorable event. Attendees
 were treated to souvenir photos on the
 NOPB’s restored Pullman Car, Spirit of
 New Orleans. The event grossed more than
 $186,000 for our Surgery Department!

                                     Start with a Blank Canvas
                                        Osborne began the two-hour lesson by introducing himself and discussing several of the works that
                                     have had major significance in his career before leading the kids through a step-by-step lesson on painting
                                     flowers in a vase. He selected the theme because he wanted to deliver flowers to a former co-worker’s family
                                     whose child is in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. However, to ensure that no unwanted agents that could
                                     further endanger the health of critically ill children enter the unit, Children’s Hospital prohibits flowers in
                                     the PICU.
                                        Armed with a dry erase board and several markers, Osborne began the lesson by drawing a vertical
                                     rectangle that would serve as his “canvas,” and asked the kids to repeat each coming step in black marker on
                                     the 18x24 inch stretched canvas in front of them. He then drew a two-dimensional vase near the bottom of
                                     his “canvas.” He told them to make sure their vase was large enough to support a big bouquet that could fill
                                     the top two-thirds of the image. For the tabletop, he told them to draw two lines running into the middle
                                     of the vase to create depth, and warned against drawing lines along the bottom of the vase, which would
                                     create the effect that the vase was “on a wire.” Next, he asked them to begin drawing flowers without stems
                                     on the top portion of the canvas. He explained depth and overlapping as he led them in drawing stems to
                                     connect the blooms and their container.
                                        Once their outline was complete, the painting began. Child Life therapists and volunteers gave each child

                                        “The best part about all of this is the sharing of knowledge,” Osborne said. “When I teach I hear what

                                        At the end of the session, each child was able to display his or her artwork for all to see and enjoy.
                                     Osborne signed their work and posed for photos with each artist. “This is a wonderful experience. I love
