It would be hard not to notice the achievements of Douglas E. Carney. He oversaw real estate development and facilities at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia for the past eight years as senior vice president, writes Natalie Kostelni for Philadelphia Business Journal.
Under Carney’s watch, CHOP’s real estate footprint grew to 7.5 million square feet. It included a new patient tower in University City, its first new hospital outside of Philadelphia in King of Prussia and an expansion of its outpatient care network.
The hospital created the Buerger Center for Advance Pediatric Care, the Roberts Center for Pediatric Research and the Nicholas and Athena Karabots Pediatric Care Center in West Philadelphia.
Now the Swarthmore resident and 24-year member of the Springfield School Board is taking on a similar job at Brigham Health in Boston.
Raised in Wayne, Carney went to Radnor High School and graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a degree in architecture.
Carney described his proudest accomplishment as “building a top notch design, construction and facilities team” that he said was as good as the doctors who work at the hospital.
“CHOP lets us be thought leaders in our world,” Carney said.
