Peggy Troy—President and Chief Executive Officer, Children’s Hospital and Health System
While Peggy Troy was a student in Marquette’s College of Nursing, she served as a nurse intern at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. She’s been involved in pediatric medicine ever since. Today, Troy leads a billion-dollar health system that is dedicated to children and employs nearly 5,000 people throughout the state. While Children’s is best known for its treatment of sick kids, its mission is much larger. As Troy puts it, “we want the children of Wisconsin to be the healthiest in the nation.” During her visit to the Law School, Troy will discuss her health system’s vision, jarring health disparities in the city of Milwaukee, developments surrounding the nation’s health care law, and alternatives to the way health care is delivered today.
