St. Christopher's Hospital for Children CEO Maria Scenna to step down after 9 months

Maria Scenna, CEO of St. Christopher's Hospital for Children in Philadelphia, is resigning Oct. 3 for a leadership role at Boca Raton, Fla.-based Cancer Treatment Centers of America's facility in Philadelphia.

Ms. Scenna will assume her new role as COO of Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Philadelphia Oct. 7.

She became CEO in January. Under her leadership, St. Christopher's Hospital for Children earned Leapfrog recognition as a top children's hospital and received the 2019 Women's Choice Award for best children's hospital.

Ms. Scenna also led the hospital through a period of financial upheaval. The hospital was put up for sale July 1, when its parent, El Segundo, Calif.-based American Academic Health System, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. West Reading, Pa.-based Tower Health and Drexel University in Philadelphia won the bid to buy the hospital.

"Maria's accomplishments include retention of world-class pediatric specialists through the hospital's bankruptcy, along with improving operational efficiency while maintaining high-quality patient care," a spokesperson for St. Christopher's told Becker's via email.
