Peggy Troy is president and chief executive officer of Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. She sees the merit in fostering corporate values to create a team dedicated to meeting its mission every day.

“I am privileged to work for one of the best children’s hospital systems in the country and one that isn’t afraid to have a bold vision – that Wisconsin’s kids will be the healthiest children in the nation. Every decision is made with a singular lens: is this in the best interest of kids?

“Our work doesn’t stop with our employees, but extends to include the entire community – parents, community leaders, benefactors, employers and more.

“As many leaders know, it’s one thing to state a vision and another to create the organizational culture and community commitment to bring it to life.

“During my time at Children’s Hospital, we’ve invested time, resources and training in articulating our values: purpose, collaboration, health, integrity and innovation. Those values extend to every nurse, social worker, doctor and staff member, as well as to our partners in the community. As Children’s has grown – adding locations and clinics, expanding our work to include foster care and adoption, insurance and community health – these values have helped ensure that we can work together to build on Children’s more than 120-year legacy of being 100 percent committed to kids.

“As someone entrusted with the stewardship of this incredible and humbling cause, it is my responsibility to make sure we always keep the kids front and center of everything we do. Luckily, I have a whole organization and a whole community pulling for the same thing.”
