I believe we should do everything possible to provide the best care to every child and family who walks through our doors.
Matthew J. Molloy, MD, MPH



I am a pediatrician who specializes in caring for children in the hospital. As a hospitalist, I strive to provide safe, high-quality care to hospitalized patients. In my clinical informatics role, I leverage medical technology to help deliver the best possible outcomes for patients across the medical center.

Medicine was a natural choice for me as it combines my passion for science with my desire, as an extrovert, to work with people every day. I love working directly with patients and families but am most excited when the work that I am doing is contributing to the health and well-being of many people. Working with children allows me to contribute to a lifetime of health for my young patients. Clinical informatics enables me to improve the health of entire populations of children.

I believe we should do everything possible to provide the best care to every child and family who walks through our doors. As a father, I know I would want this for my daughters. That's why I specialize in the use of medical technology to optimize and standardize care processes for hospitalized children.

Providers can take a long time to incorporate new evidence and recommendations into practice. Through my research in clinical informatics and high-value care, I use tools and techniques to optimize and implement medical technologies like the electronic health record, clinical decision support tools and artificial intelligence to improve the care of children.

In my free time, I love to explore Cincinnati's parks and outdoor spaces and visit the Cincinnati Zoo with my wife and two daughters. As a former improv comedian, I see as many performances, plays, musicals and concerts as possible.
