New CEO starts tenure at Nemours Children’s Health System
Dr. R. Lawrence Moss has started his tenure as president and CEO of Nemours Children’s Health System after serving seven years as surgeon-in-chief at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio.
“I am both excited and humbled by the privilege,” Moss said. “It is a challenge to lead any pediatric health system, but at Nemours where I will be trying to fill the shoes of my predecessor, Dr. David Bailey, it will be an especially herculean task. Nemours’ mission of putting the child first in every interaction and every decision is not only familiar to me, it is aligned with my most deeply held beliefs about health care for children. Improving the lives and well-being of our children has been the basis of my entire professional life.”
Moss has a background as a pediatric surgeon, biomedical researcher, educator and health system executive.
“We are delighted to have Dr. Moss join the Nemours team in delivering on our mission to provide the leadership, institutions and services to restore and improve the health of children through care and programs not readily available,” said Brian Anderson, chairman of the board of directors of the Nemours Foundation. “His commitment to whole child health makes him a wonderful fit for the children, families, and the communities we serve.”
