Paul King, executive director of C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital and Von Voigtlander Women’s Hospital, has been elected to the Board of Trustees of the Children’s Hospital Association. He begins his term on Jan.1, 2016.

King, who has nearly 30 years of experience as a health care executive, joined U-M in 2013 just two years after the institution opened its 12-story, 1.1 million square foot children’s and women’s facility. Prior to Michigan, King successfully led a large, Los Angeles-based pediatric group practice.

“The Children’s Hospital Association Board of Trustees unites leaders from children’s hospitals around the country, allowing us to work together to address challenges we all face and coordinate efforts to improve health care for children,” says King.

“I look forward to serving on the board and working with colleagues on the shared mission of providing the highest quality and safest care possible for children while reducing health care expenses for families.”

The Children’s Hospital Association is the national voice of more than 200 children’s hospitals, advancing child health through innovation in the quality, cost and delivery of care.

“I welcome Mr. King to our board as a leader in children’s health care,” says Steve Allen, M.D., incoming chair, CHA Board of Trustees and CEO of Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. “I look forward to his perspectives and contributions as we continue our work collaboratively as an industry to improve care, enhance the patient and family experience, and lower the cost of care for children.”
