Pediatrician Kevin Churchwell, M.D., was named CEO of Nashvilles Monroe Carell Jr. Childrens Hospital at Vanderbilt University. Churchwell, 45, has been the hospitals interim CEO since January, when former CEO Jim Shmerling left to become president and CEO of the Childrens Hospital of Denver. In his new position, Churchwell will be responsible for the hospitals day-to-day operations, financial performance and growth. Leading a successful expansion of the facility, which aims to add 100 beds by years end, will be among his first tasks. As interim CEO, Churchwell spearheaded the opening of Carells pediatric Level 1 trauma center last month.
