Medical City Children’s Hospital has named Bill Lee as its new CEO, effective May 1. He will replace Keith Zimmerman.
Previously, Lee served since 2010 as senior vice president and chief strategy officer at Memorial University Medical Center in Savannah, Ga. There, he oversaw clinical operations, financials, community relations, physician recruitment, and philanthropy.
He’d also served as chief administrator for Willet Children’s Hospital of Savannah, where he led a $20 million capital campaign to design and build a new children’s hospital to open in 2019.
Chris Mowan, CEO of Medical City Dallas, said Lee is a valuable addition to the hospital.
“[Lee’s] extensive experience with business development, growth and operations of children’s hospitals brings a depth of knowledge during an exciting time of advancement at Medical City Children’s Hospital,” Mowan said.
Lee earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Oglethorpe University and a master’s in health administration and an MBA from Georgia State University.
