Leadership (GuideStar ExchangeThe GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more. July, 2013)

Mr. David K. Miles

Term:

Since Dec 2003

Profile:

Mr. Miles has been with The Children’s Institute for more than 30 years. Starting as a master teacher at The Day School, he later transitioned into healthcare management and in December 2003 became President and CEO. Under his leadership the organization recently raised $30 million through The Campaign for an Amazing Future. Campaign priorities included building acquisition and renovation and expansion of programs and services. During his tenure, Mr. Miles opened the outpatient satellite facilities in Green Tree, Wexford and Monroeville (now Norwin Hills), launched the Functional Feeding Program, and implemented a system-wide process improvement initiative that has resulted in significant operational and financial improvements.Currently, he serves on the Board of the Hospital Council of Western Pennsylvania, NACHRI Trustees Forum, and advisory boards for ABOARD and the Health Policy Institute. He previously served as president of the Squirrel Hill Urban Coalition from 2001 – 2004.   Mr. Miles holds a Master of Science degree in public management from Carnegie Mellon University, and a Master of Science degree in education and a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science from the University of Pittsburgh.

Leadership Statement:

Dear Friend, It is said that change is the only constant. In these turbulent times—filled with economic and legislative events affecting the work we do—change does, indeed, seem to be a constant. But is it is by no means the only one. Consider the century-old mission of The Children’s Institute:  promoting the well-being of children, young people and their families and providing services that meet their special needs. While the practices, technologies and techniques we use have changed dramatically, that mission has remained unchanged. This profile reflects many of the ways in which we carry out our mission and the amazing, life-altering results in the lives of individual children and families. From the increased demand for some of our most specialized Hospital services like Prader-Willi syndrome and medical ventilator management, to adding a classroom for children with autism in The Day School, to planning for a Family Visitation Center for Project STAR families, the organization continues to adapt to external events in programmatically and fiscally responsive ways. In doing so, we remain constant in our purpose-delivering expert, compassionate and highly individualized care that makes a world of difference to kids and families one by one. David K. Miles, MEd, MPM

Category:
Health Care, General/Other
Population Served:
Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Other Named Groups
Physically Disabled nec

Program Description:

The Hospital is the only free-standing, pediatric rehabilitation specialty hospital in Pennsylvania and one of only 20 in the country. The Hospital provides state of the science care on an inpatient and outpatient basis for children from birth to age 21. Medical specialists include pediatricians, physiatrists, nurses, psychologists and other clinicians. In FY2011, The Hospital served 419 inpatients. The Children’s Institute team provides outpatient treatment as well. Over 3,473 outpatients were served. Some of the specialized services offered include: Autism Treatment, Brain Injury Rehabilitation, Feeding Disorder Management, Prader-Willi Syndrome, Reflect Neurovascular Dystrophy, Respite Care, and Spinal Cord Rehabilitation. The Children’s Institute also has the world’s only hospital-based program for the treatment of Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS).

Program Long-Term Success:

The Hospital at The Children’s Institute will continue to adapt and evolve its programming to meet the special needs of both inpatients and outpatients as well the communities it serves. Likewise, it will continue to use the established metrics outlined below to assure the effectiveness, safety and success of The Hospital’s programs and services.

Program Short-Term Success:

In fiscal year 2011 the Prader-Willi Syndrome Program served 52 patients. Overall Hospital inpatient admissions have seen an 81% increase since FY2000 and a 149% increase in outpatients served in that same time span. Inpatient services have transitioned to more medically complex rehabilitation services following trauma or illness. The Children’s Institute now offers substantial services to children with complex medical needs, which extend to medical management, including oncology, post-organ transplantation, cardiac and vent-dependent services and wound management. For outpatients there has been a significant increase in the delivery of autism services.

Program Success Monitored by:

There are a number of metrics in place to assure the effectiveness, safety and success of programs at The Hospital. National Patient Safety Goals are used to monitor the safety of the patients, improve their care, and measure the effectiveness of their treatment. Every family who has had a child seen at The Children’s Institute received a survey to rate and comment on the care their child received, as well as the organization itself. In the FY2011 survey, 95% of the families of both inpatients and outpatients would recommend the hospital at The Children's Institute 100% of inpatients reported that their stay at The Children’s Institute helped them to function at their fullest potential and 91% of outpatients reported that their child's treatment at The Institute helped to improve his/her function.

Program Success Examples:

The Hospital at The Children’s Institute is home to one of only four intensive treatment programs in the country for reflex neurovascular dystrophy and houses the only inpatient treatment program for people with Prader-Willi syndrome.   The Functional Feeding Program also garners national attention. It provides inpatient and outpatient evaluations and treatment for children with mild to severe feeding concerns. In FY2011 The Hospital had 65 inpatients stays in the functional feeding program, many who were toddlers in rehabilitation following small bowel and multivisceral transplants.

Program: The Day School at The Children's Institute

Budget:
--
Category:
Education, General/Other
Population Served:
Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Other Named Groups
Physically Disabled nec

Program Description:

The Day School is licensed by the PA Department of Education as an Approved Private School for children ages 2-21 who are challenged by complex and severe disabilities such as autism, cerebral palsy and/or neurological impairments. The school is one of only two schools in Pennsylvania to be fully accredited by the National Commission for the Accreditation of Special Education Services. The Day School has a strong commitment to quality. Staff explore new methods and materials, encourage “best practices” in all areas and make certain that they maintain and improve their skills. They are dedicated to advancing instructional strategies, techniques and materials, enhancing a student’s experience by skilled, energized staff, a modern facility and a supportive school community with a positive attitude toward learning and life. Functional communications, behavioral approaches and effective use of technology are priority strategies for educating children with special needs for the team.

Program Long-Term Success:

The current and predicted future trend in enrollment for students with multiple disabilities is expected to remain static or decrease while the number of referrals of students with autism is expected to increase. The medical acuity of students with multiple disabilities is now much higher and students are much more medically fragile and far less independent. The Day School will continue to be a leader in the education of students with autism and will share their knowledge with other educators.

Program Short-Term Success:

In school year 2010-2011, The Day School served 186 students from more than 60 school districts. In response to the growing number of students with autism, The Children’s Institute established ten classrooms specially designed to meet the needs of this special population.    The Day School has also taken part in numerous research studies, such as “Motivating Therapy Through Technology” and continued collaboration with DynaVox Technologies to use technology as a means to achieve individual student goals. The Day School also has a growing role in the Pennsylvania Department of Education Verbal Behavior Project, which benefits students with autism.

Program Success Monitored by:

Every four years, The Day School is re-evaluated and re-accredited by the National Commission for the Accreditation of Special Education Services (NCASES). It is the first school, and one of only two in Pennsylvania, to be accredited by NCASES. During the 2009-2010 school year, parents/guardians reported a 98% satisfaction rate with their child’s program at The Day School.

Program Success Examples:

The Day School is in the second year of a literacy program that aims to help each child advance to his or her maximum possible level of literacy. After year one, 51% of the students have progressed measurably, in some cases significantly. Some are not only reading and writing, they’re emailing and texting - and thoroughly enjoying the experience. The Structured Social/Exercise Group meets twice weekly in the gym. Most of the students are accompanied by at least one therapist or teacher and as music plays the young people walk, socialize and have fun while building endurance. It has become clear that students in the group are walking faster and longer with some walking for more that 15 continuous minutes.

Program Description:

Project STAR at The Children’s Institute is a social service, adoption, and foster care agency with offices in Pittsburgh and Monaca. It is licensed by the PA Department of Public Welfare and is an affiliate member of the Statewide Adoption Network (SWAN).   Project STAR provides the highest quality of service at no cost to children and families - especially those with physical, emotional, and intellectual disabilities. Services include: Family Placement Services Post-Permanency Services Intensive Family Support Project Project STAR opened a Family Visitation Center on the Shadyside campus. Construction on the Project STAR Family Visitation Center began November 21, 2011. This unique space welcomes families into a home-like atmosphere where healing and growth is nurtured. Here, families will receive Intensive Family Support, which includes parental role-modeling and supportive case-workers, and learn how to work together. This renovated house is the first visitation center of its kind in Allegheny County.

Program Long-Term Success:

Project STAR is continuing their mission to promote the right of all children to grow in a safe, nurturing, lasting family. Two programs that will advance this mission are the Dr. Dad Initiative and Mom as the Gateway, which both focus on involving fathers in the lives of their children by taking different approaches. Both programs will strengthen family bonds and promote family preservation.

Program Short-Term Success:

Project STAR responded effectively to a second year of increased need for services during fiscal year 2011. In just two years, Project STAR has seen almost a 30% increase in the number of clients served. In FY 2011, 1,330 children and families in 12 counties received services through Project STAR. Project STAR clients from Beaver, Allegheny and Westmoreland Counties experienced family preservation and reunification rates range between 94-100%.

Program Success Monitored by:

Project STAR assesses program effectiveness through a performance-based evaluation system: The Casey Foster Applicant Inventory and the Casey Home Assessment Protocol. Programs and services are evaluated using performance indicators and internal benchmarks in the domains of access to care, appropriateness of care, efficiency, outcomes and client satisfaction. Data is collected through a review of staff logs, client records, use of standardized family assessment tools and client satisfaction surveys. Project STAR is also licensed and monitored through the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare. Ultimately, Project STAR’s success is measured one child at a time. All children deserve to grow up in a safe loving permanent family. Their staff, programs and services are committed to the realization of that goal for every child they serve.

Program Success Examples:

The Statewide Adoption Network Older Child Matching Initiative has renewed an initial two-year contract to extend another five years. The Dr. Dad Initiative has increased the knowledge of those enrolled by 37%. Project STAR has also been the recipient of the 2005 Congressional Angles in Adoption™Award and the 2004 Adoption Excellence Award for Support for Adoptive Families (Department of Health and Human Services).
