Latino Business Chamber of Greater LA Honors Children's Hospital Los Angeles as Nonprofit Business of the Year
LOS ANGELES, CA -- The Latino Business Chamber of Greater Los Angeles (LBC-GLA) selected Children's Hospital Los Angeles as the Nonprofit Business of the Year during its Third Annual Awards luncheon held this week in downtown Los Angeles. The chamber presented Business of Year Awards to six outstanding businesses and one nonprofit organization during the event.
"This year winning companies represented the best and brightest of today's entrepreneurs--and they hold the key to spurring economic revival, job generation and sustained growth," said Jorge Corralejo, chairman and CEO of the Latino Business Chamber of Greater Los Angeles.
The prestigious awards recognize the dedication, innovation and entrepreneurial spirit displayed by the Greater Los Angeles' Latino business community. The key criteria upon which the nominees were judged included business and income growth, innovation, community involvement and excellence in industry.
The award to Children's Hospital Los Angeles caps a tremendous year of expansion for the 110-year-old hospital. In July 2011, a new era in pediatric and adolescent healthcare began when Children's Hospital opened its new 317-bed, $636 million, state-of-the-art hospital building. The 460,000-square-foot building, known as the Marion and John E. Anderson Pavilion, is able to offer broader services to patients and families and is one of the nation's premier medical facilities for children.
"We're grateful for this recognition by the Latino business community which acknowledges the hard work of all of our doctors, nurses and employees every day of the year," said Richard D. Cordova, FACHE, president and CEO of Children's Hospital Los Angeles. "As a community we believe we have designed and constructed the perfect building to care for patients and their families for generations to come. The Anderson Pavilion is truly a work of art and certainly a precious jewel for the City of Los Angeles."
