Job Function


Phoenix Children’s has initiated a national search for a dynamic innovative leader to serve as the next Physician-in-Chief. This is an extraordinary opportunity for a physician leader to join a growing healthcare system and help Phoenix Children’s continue to grow clinical care, research and education across the region.

Phoenix Children’s
Forty years ago, Phoenix Children’s opened within Good Samaritan Hospital as a “hospital within a hospital,” and 20 years ago, we embarked on building Arizona’s first and only freestanding pediatric hospital. Guided by our mission to advance hope, healing and the best healthcare for children and their families, we are focused on meeting the healthcare needs of Arizona’s growing pediatric population. For the past two decades, we’ve created nationally recognized programs and centers of excellence, earned a host of clinical accreditations and accolades, recruited top physicians and executives from
across the country and around the world, expanded our residency and fellowship programs to train the next generation of doctors, and built a large and integrated medical group to ensure coordinated and consistent care delivery. Our physical footprint is expanding as well. It’s all to ensure Arizona families have access to high quality healthcare – right in their own communities. With a comprehensive and growing children’s hospital, two new hospital locations opening in 2024 and more than 40 healthcare centers and clinics, we deliver exceptional care for communities throughout the region. We are made up of more than 1,400 primary care and sub-specialty practitioners who address health challenges from the everyday to the most complex and from the earliest years onward. Alongside our colleagues, collaborators and communities, we’re elevating pediatric care, education and innovation, so we can all grow healthier together. Phoenix Children’s will become one of the five largest pediatric health systems in the United States over the next several years.

Phoenix Children’s Medical Group
Phoenix Children’s Medical Group (PCMG) has grown to include more than 750 employed and contract physicians, as well as advanced practice providers. PCMG offers care in more than 75 pediatric specialties across 34 clinical divisions at more than 40 sites of service in the state of Arizona. It is home to Phoenix Children’s eight centers of excellence, including:

• Barrow Neurological Institute at Phoenix Children’s
• Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders
• Center for Cleft and Craniofacial Care
• Center for Fetal and Neonatal Care
• Center for Heart Care
• Herbert J. Louis Center for Orthopedics and Sports Medicine
• Center for Spine Care
• Center for Trauma Care

As Phoenix Children’s prepares to open two additional hospitals in the next year, PCMG is taking steps to ensure consistent, quality care at all points of inpatient and outpatient care throughout our system.
One example has been bringing several divisions in-house to PCMG, including infectious diseases and anesthesia. Building an integrated and aligned medical group for all areas of operation at Phoenix Children’s is part of our health system’s overall strategic plan amid our continued growth. Ensuring each patient family receives consistently high-quality, safe care – preferably, closer to home – is paramount to us.

Recruiting and retaining world-class division chiefs to lead our specialty areas is a key factor in making this possible. We are committed to making Phoenix Children’s a best place to work for all clinicians, including those involved with patient care, clinical instruction and research.

No matter the challenge, from tracking patient data to treating rare disorders, our team adapts our
practices to provide new and better solutions. With our skilled network and wide reach, we’re equipped to develop the breakthrough tools, technologies and treatments needed to meet every family’s health needs. Together, we’re expanding what’s possible for pediatric care, education and innovation.
