Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin’s President and CEO Peggy Troy Elected Chair of the Children’s Hospital Association Board

January 20, 2015

Troy_Peggy_1214_webOn Jan. 1, 2015, Peggy Troy, president and CEO of Children’s Hospital Wisconsin, started her year-long term as chair of the Children’s Hospital Association Board of Trustees. Troy’s 40 years in health care began as a bedside nurse and has progressed through a variety of leadership roles. She has witnessed the trends and changes in health care, and the impact it has had on how children’s hospitals address the health care needs of their patients. Her understanding and leadership experience in children’s hospitals make her the right person to lead the Association’s board at a time when children’s hospitals are working together to improve quality, costs and care delivery.

“I look forward to serving as chair of the Children’s Hospital Association Board of Trustees and working with my fellow board members,” said Troy. “It’s so important that we work together to protect the unique needs of children, especially those with complex medical conditions. This is a great opportunity to advocate for all children in order to improve access to quality care. We are the voice for more than 220 children’s hospitals across the country and collectively, we can protect, improve and advocate for the health of the children we serve.”

“Peggy is an ideal leader to be at the helm in 2015 as we continue to advance innovative solutions that improve care for children while reducing costs to our health care system,” said Mark Wietecha, president and CEO of the Children’s Hospital Association.
