DETROIT, Nov. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Detroit Medical Center CEO Joe Mullany announced Larry M. Gold will become the new president of the Children's Hospital of Michigan, effective January 1, 2014. Gold brings 23 years experience in leading children's hospitals and pediatric specialty care to his new role at the Children's Hospital of Michigan. 

"We look forward to having Larry join our team. He is a seasoned executive who has devoted his entire career to the delivery of pediatric health care and serving our most vulnerable population. His background in running several children's hospitals, working in an academic and research-focused environment, and as a child health care advocate will position us well to best serve the patients and families in our care throughout the region and state," said Mullany.

Children's Hospital of Michigan Board Chair Erica Ward Gerson led a team in an extensive international search for the position. "We are absolutely thrilled in our choice of Larry Gold. He is uniquely qualified to guide us in the next exciting phase of Children's Hospital of Michigan's 125-year-plus history, as we continue to grow and develop as one of the best hospitals in the nation solely dedicated to the treatment of children," said Gerson.

Gold most recently served as president of British Columbia Children's Hospital and Sunny Hill Health Centre, in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Among his many achievements there, Gold spearheaded the planning and development of a $700 million replacement hospital using LEAN design for British Columbia's only dedicated acute care children's hospital.

Gold has also served as a consultant on international pediatric acute care delivery models and as a key advisor on the design and construction of the world's largest pediatric cancer hospital, a 200-bed facility in Cairo, Egypt.

In addition to his leadership at British Columbia Children's Hospital, Gold previously served as president and chief executive officer at Connecticut Children's Medical Center and Newington Children's Hospital in Hartford, Conn., and as administrator of the Children's Hospital of Illinois at OSF Healthcare in Peoria, Ill.  

Gold earned his master's degree in Health System Management from Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pa. and holds a master's degree in Social Work from the University of Pittsburgh. He is active in the community and has served as chairman of the board of directors of the Canadian Association of Pediatric Health Centers, chairman of the board of directors of the Connecticut Hospital Association and board member and chair of the Advocacy Committee of the National Association of Children's Hospitals and Related Institutions (now the Children's Hospital Association).
