Welcoming a Familiar Face as Our New COO
We’re pleased to introduce Evie Alessandrini, MD, MSCE, as our new chief operating officer. She succeeds Steve Davis, MD, who began his duties as president and CEO last November.
Dr. Alessandrini comes to us from UC Health, where she was the executive vice president, chief medical officer and interim chief operations officer. Yet she’s no stranger to Cincinnati Children’s, having first joined the medical center in 2009 as director of the Place Outcomes Research Program and director of the Quality Scholars Program in Healthcare Transformation. In 2011, Dr. Alessandrini rose to assistant vice president of Outcomes Systems within our James M. Anderson Center for Health Systems Excellence.
“Evie was clearly the best choice,” Dr. Davis says. “She brings an energy and a passion for making things better—and that inspires the people she works with to excel.”
“I'm coming back to Cincinnati Children’s because I love designing systems that deliver healthcare that quickly gets the best outcomes, experience and value for kids,” Dr. Alessandrini says. “And when I think of what’s possible—the innovative initiatives and interventions that really capitalize on all the strengths Cincinnati Children’s has, like amazing clinical care, top-notch research programs, great educational programs—it’s like a dream come true to have that opportunity, together with a great team, to build on,” she says.
