Phoenix Children’s Hospital has initiated a national search for an innovative leader in academic Neonatology who will serve as the inaugural Hudson Endowed Chair of Neonatology. This appointment will include academic affiliation at University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix.
Phoenix Children’s Hospital is Arizona’s only children’s hospital recognized by U.S. News & World Report’s Best Children’s Hospitals, including garnering all 10 shields in 2018 at which time Neonatology ranked 34th. Phoenix Children's provides world-class inpatient, outpatient, trauma, emergency and urgent care to children and families in Arizona and throughout the Southwest. As one of the largest children’s hospitals in the country, Phoenix Children’s provides care across more than 75 pediatric specialties. Phoenix Children’s is poised for continued growth in quality patient care, research and medical education.
