University Hospitals has named Dr. Marlene R. Miller its pediatrician in chief for the health system and chair of the Department of Pediatrics at UH Rainbow Babies Children’s Hospital.
In the newly created pediatrician in chief role, Miller has medical oversight of all pediatric services across the health system.
In her other role, Miller takes over for Dr. Fred Rothstein, who had been serving as interim chair of the Department of Pediatrics since November 2016.
Miller joins UH from the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center in Baltimore, where she held the titles of vice chair of quality and safety and chief quality officer, pediatrics, for the health system. Miller, who spent 19 years at Johns Hopkins, also will be nominated for appointment by Case Western Reserve University president Barbara R. Snyder as chair of the CWRU School of Medicine’s Department of Pediatrics at UH Cleveland Medical Center.
“Dr. Miller is a dynamic and visionary leader, who launched her pediatric career as a medical student at Rainbow and is now returning to transform pediatric care, discovery, and education,” said Dr. Daniel Simon, president of UH Cleveland Medical Center and chief academic officer at UH, in a news release. She received her master of science degree in clinical investigation from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
“Dr. Miller is a recognized pioneer in pediatric patient safety, and devoted to continuously improving the quality and value of health care,” said Patti DePompei, president of UH Rainbow Babies Children’s Hospital, in the release. “We look forward to her deep expertise and collaborative attitude joining the UH Rainbow leadership team.”
