WittKieffer is pleased to collaborate with Children's Health, in collaboration with UT Southwestern (UTSW), on their search for a dynamic Executive Director, Maternal Fetal-Neonatology Program and Network Development to execute on a strategy of bringing world-class Mother-Baby services to Children's Health through the Joint Pediatric Enterprise (JPE), a joint governance structure between Children’s Health and UTSW. 

Children's Health is the eighth largest pediatric healthcare provider in the country, and the only academically-affiliated pediatric system in the region. Total operating revenues approach $2 billion, and the organization has approximately 8,000 employees dedicated to making life better for children. For over 100 years, Children's Health has served the children and families of North Texas. The organization is nationally ranked in all 10 pediatric specialties by U.S. News & World Report, serves as the primary pediatric teaching facility for the University of Texas Southwestern and is recognized for quality care in every specialty. Children's Health has held the AANC Magnet® designation for nursing excellence since 2009, a coveted achievement that is recognized worldwide as the designation of excellence in healthcare.

Reporting to the Executive Vice President, Physician Organizations and Chief Medical Officer of the JPE, this individual will lead the strategic planning, development and execution of the Mother-Baby program (including Maternal Fetal Medicine, Neonatology and Obstetrics) with an emphasis on deepening and expanding the neonatal and high-risk infant network, in alignment with the JPE and Mother-Baby Executive Committee.

The Executive Director, Maternal-Fetal Neonatology Program and Network Development will work in collaboration with physician leaders at UTSW, Children’s Health executives and service line leaders to develop and oversee the execution of the Maternal Fetal Neonatal Strategic Plan focused on three strategic pillars of maternal, fetal and neonatal services, which are tightly aligned and scalable in the local/regional markets. This leader is responsible for financial planning and stewardship, establishing key performance measures, creating and nurturing strategic partnerships inside and outside Children's Health, overseeing resource deployment and ensuring alignment across all key stakeholders and entities.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a high quality organization with an exceptional reputation, ideally positioned to transform healthcare in the community that they serve.
