On behalf of Juan Salazar MD, Chair of Pediatrics, CareerPhysician, LLC, a leader in academic pediatric leadership recruitment, has initiated a national search to identify a transformational leader to name Chief of Neonatology at Connecticut Children’s Hospital and UCONN School of Medicine to lead their U.S News ranked division into the future.

The Chief will have the opportunity to advance the legacy of the neonatology division by continuing to advance the regional and national reputation of the program and create a vision that encompasses the mission and values of Connecticut Children’s, dedicated to improving the physical and emotional health of children through family-centered care, research, education, and advocacy.

Opportunity Highlights:

• Lead a clinical enterprise of 42 neonatologists and 104 advanced practice clinicians providing clinical support to 14 neonatal units throughout Connecticut and Eastern New York, and architect a vision to continue to expand through strategic partnerships in the region.

• The new Chief will align and report directly to the Chair of Pediatrics at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center and the President of Connecticut Children’s Specialty Group (CCSG), joining an institution with strategic and fiscal commitment to building a new, state-of-the-art 65 bed NICU.
