President and CEO,
Children's Hospital of Philadelphia
Before becoming CEO in 2015, Bell served as the organization’s chief operating officer COO for eight years. A pediatric nurse by training, Bell has developed one of the largest pediatric ambulatory networks in the nation, implemented a single platform electronic health record system, and expanded CHOP’s 4 million-square-foot campus. She serves on the boards of the Children’s Hospital Association, Comcast, the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics, and Solutions for Patient Safety.
Bell speaks: “So many women are leaving the workforce right now, healthcare in particular. And I would tell them that there’s lots of opportunity and flexibility in a career in healthcare no matter what it is. You can be on the provider side, you can be on the insurance side, you can work for pharma, life sciences, health policy. There are just so many opportunities.”
