Cincinnati Children’s has been committed to transformational quality improvement for more than a decade. This journey has changed the culture and focus of our institution dramatically. Today, a commitment to quality permeates our organization from the chairman of the board to the frontline staff. To elevate our focus and spread the impact of this work, the James M. Anderson Center for Health Systems Excellence was created in 2010 and is led by co-directors Peter Margolis, MD, PhD, and Steve Muething, MD. Named in honor of the institution’s former president and CEO, the Anderson Center was created to take Cincinnati Children’s further − and bring others − on the journey toward improving child health.

The Anderson Center shares ideas, knowledge and data transparently and collaborates extensively, because we believe that in doing so we accelerate the reach and pace of our improvement as well as that of others. Throughout this site you will find examples of how we are harnessing the power of improvement science to accelerate change and create leaders who will be the catalysts that transform the delivery of healthcare. If you would like additional information about the Anderson Center, or would like to join us on our journey, we invite you to contact us.
