Seattle Children’s has named Lisa Brandenburg hospital president.
Brandenburg, who has served as the hospital’s administrative officer (CAO) for five years, will assume the position immediately.
Brandenburg replaces former hospital president and chief operating officer Pat Hagan who after more than 15 years at Children’s resigned last January to serve as a continuous performance improvement consultant.
Brandenburg talks about her new position:
In addition to CAO, Brandenburg has been serving as interim president since Hagan’s departure.
Brandenburg has 21 years experience leading complex service organizations, including the University of Washington Medical Center.
As CAO of Children’s, she has been involved in all aspects of the hospital including patient care, physician practice management, the Building Hope expansion, transportation initiatives, human resources, and supply chain management.
Brandenburg’s CAO duties will now be distributed to other leaders across the organization so she can focus on her new responsibilities.
Brandenburg will report to Dr. Hansen and will become one of three current Children’s presidents joining: James Hendricks, PhD, president of Seattle Children’s Research Institute; and Douglas Picha, president of Seattle Children’s Hospital Foundation.
