Children’s Health Redefines Roles for Several Top Executives

Children’s Health announced a series of changes to the titles and job scopes of its executive team members, which it says will contribute to efficiency, help the system better align with its strategic priorities, and support strategic objectives that include a focus on the patient experience.

David Berry’s promotion is one of a handful announced by Children’s Health recently.
