Texas Children’s International Services hosts “Embassy Night”

October 29, 2019

In our effort to continue strengthening relationships in the Middle East, Texas Children’s International Services recently hosted “Embassy Night” in Washington, D.C.

Held on September 24 at the Morgan Lewis Building, embassy physicians, staff, and referral partners joined Texas Children’s International Services team members and Texas Children’s leaders in learning more about our services and what we have to offer to both children and women.

Vice President Ivett Shah, International Services Medical Director Dr. Armando Correa, Surgeon-in-Chief Dr. Larry Hollier, Radiologist-in-Chief Dr. Thierry Huisman, Obstetrician and Gynecologist-in-Chief Dr. Michael Belfort, and Anesthesiologist-in-Chief Dr. Dean Andropoulos all attended and spoke at the event.

“This was a great opportunity to talk to referring physicians from all the Gulf embassies stationed in Washington, D.C.,” Shah said. “We wanted them to hear our physicians speak about the latest medical updates and to keep our organization top of my mind when they send patients to hospitals in the U.S.”

On average, Texas Children’s treats nearly 300 patients a year from the Middle East and – as a top-ranked pediatric hospital and one of the largest international patient programs in the nation – is a preferred partner to the embassies in the Middle East.
