Kurt Newman, MD, Begins as New CEO of Children’s National Medical Center

With a pledge of fostering connections and encouraging innovation to improve children’s health, Kurt Newman, MD, began as the new President and Chief Executive Officer at Children’s National Medical Center on Sept. 1. Dr. Newman was the driving force behind the vision and creation of the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation in 2009. Since then, he has built a team of surgeon-researchers, opened new state-of-the-art facilities, and visited the United Arab Emirates several times to exchange information about the latest innovations in pediatric medicine.

Dr. Newman has been at Children’s National for 27 years and is the first physician to serve as CEO of Children’s National. Prior to this role, he was Senior Vice President for the Joseph E. Robert, Jr., Center for Surgical Care since 2003 and served as acting Vice President for the Sheikh Zayed Institute before Peter C.W. Kim, MD, was hired.

“I truly believe in Children’s National Medical Center and am committed to doing what’s right for kids and families, while continuing to push the boundaries of medicine and research through innovation and big thinking,” Dr. Newman said. “Just as we did with the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation, we must develop big ideas, form new partnerships, and apply innovation to everything we do.”
