Jason Silletti, vice chair of the board of trustees at the Orthopaedic Institute for Children (OIC), has been appointed co-chair of the organization’s $20 million capital campaign “2020: A Vison for Our Future.” Silletti has served as chair of OIC’s investment committee since 2013 and currently serves on OIC’s annual “Swing for Kids” golf committee.
“OIC has changed the path of tens of thousands of children, and our Vision for the Future campaign will help ensure that all children with orthopaedic conditions have a future where they can grow well and play well,” said OIC’s CEO Anthony Scaduto, M.D. “We are thrilled that Jason has accepted this important position and know that his passion and true love for our mission will have a meaningful impact in helping us reach our fundraising goals.”
The centerpiece to OIC’s Vison for Our Future campaign is a major reconstruction, which will transform the Lowman Building into a state-of-the-art medical pavilion. Inside this new pavilion will be the largest pediatric orthopaedic urgent care center in the United States that will include a new fracture clinic, physical therapy center, research laboratories, pharmacy, radiology center and lecture hall. This transformation will help ensure that OIC’s expert surgeons, doctors and nurses have the best facilities and equipment to care for the increasing number of children who come through our doors.
“I am honored and excited about the opportunity to help bring to light awareness of our need and appreciation for the incredible value OIC brings to our community,” said Silletti. “As a resident of Pacific Palisades, I know firsthand of OIC’s strong and vibrant presence on the westside through its Luskin Children’s Clinic in Santa Monica and its alliance with UCLA Health. We should all take great pride in their unselfish mission and support the great work OIC is doing for children throughout Los Angeles and beyond.”
Silletti has been a member of the OIC board of trustees since 2012. A fixture in the Los Angeles financial and investment communities, Silletti has been a private wealth advisor with Goldman Sachs in Century City for more than two decades and holds a master’s in business administration from the University of Chicago, Booth School of Business and a Bachelor of Arts from UCLA.
