University Hospitals Health System

On behalf of University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital and University Hospitals Health System, MillicanSolutions, a leader in academic pediatric executive search, has initiated a national search to identify candidates to serve as the Chair of the Department of Pediatrics and Pediatrician-in-Chief.  The organizations are seeking a transformational physician leader capable of establishing and implementing a vision for the creation of a nationally respected Pediatric Service Line across the $4.0 billion University Hospitals Health System.  The new forward-thinking, inspirational Chair will leverage a health system that is home to a 150-year legacy of high quality clinical care and innovation in the region and an academic children’s hospital recognized nationally for its tradition of meaningful clinical, educational, and scientific contributions to pediatrics. 

The success of pediatrics in the region and at Rainbow Babies and Children’s is one of the highest strategic priorities of the senior leadership team at the well-integrated University Hospitals Health System and the philanthropic community. With full support, respect, and visibility from system leadership and transformational resources, the UH Pediatric Service Line is poised to significantly expand its breadth, depth, and impact. The newly appointed leader will not only be responsible for enhancing the provision and coordination of world-class inpatient and outpatient settings throughout the System, but he/she will have the opportunity to inspire and lead a loyal faculty base in re-establishing Rainbow Babies and Children’s as a recognized leader in academic pediatrics.  

Taking into consideration the strategic imperative University Hospitals Health System has placed on pediatrics, the System’s commitment to meaningful resources, and the respected history of Rainbow Babies and Children’s, we believe this leadership role to be one of the great legacy opportunities available nationally.

The successful MD or MD/PhD candidate with a sustained record of leadership accomplishment, operational expertise, and scholarly activity will be qualified to be appointed at the rank of Associate or Full Professor and will be eligible for an unrestricted medical license in the state of Ohio.
