The Nemours Foundation, an internationally known children's health system that operates Children's Hospital in Orlando, last week announced the election of Brian Anderson as its chairman of the board, succeeding John Lord, who will remain on the board after eight years as chair.
"It is with great confidence and enthusiasm that I pass the mantle of leadership to Brian Anderson," Lord said. "He has impressed the entire Nemours organization with an insightful and practical brand of leadership, and offers truly unique perspectives from his vast experiences at world-class organizations both inside and outside of health care."
Anderson was previously with Baxter International and Deloitte & Touche in Chicago and Washington, D.C. He earned his bachelor's in accounting from Howard University and an MBA from Indiana University. Anderson serves on several boards.
"On behalf of the Board of Directors, I want to thank John Lord for his extraordinary leadership and tireless devotion to the Children and Families of Nemours over the past 21 years," Anderson said. "Nemours owes John a great debt for his leadership…His passion for service to our communities and deeply held concern for the well-being of others, especially children, mirror[s] the sentiments of Nemours' benefactor, Alfred I. duPont."
Nemours owns and operates the Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware, and more than 50 pediatric specialty, primary and urgent care clinics in Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Florida.
