Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin
The future of Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin is bright. It will continue to provide compassionate, expert care to children all over the country in large thanks to Mark Hogan, secretary and chief executive officer of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. and longtime board member at Children’s Hospital.
Hogan has played a role in almost every significant accomplishment Children’s has made during the past decade, including: the development and implementation of its first formal strategic plan, the “care closer to home” initiative, its efforts in population health, the introduction of electronic medical records, and even the establishment of the new collaborative Sojourner Family Peace Center.
“Mark was there, providing invaluable vision and leadership, always encouraging everyone to think bigger and do better,” said Peggy Troy, president and chief executive officer of Children’s Hospital.
In 2013, Hogan helped Children’s obtain a $10.6 million tax credit for Sojourner Family Peace Center, which allowed it to build the new 72,000-square-foot-facility in Milwaukee, the largest family justice center in the country.
The Sojourner Family Peace Center is Wisconsin’s largest nonprofit dedicated to domestic violence prevention and intervention. Nearly 10,000 victims of family violence are helped by the center each year.
“Without Mark’s financial expertise and guidance, this invaluable community resource would not have become a reality,” Troy said.
He has held various roles on Children’s board, including the strategic planning committee, the finance committee and the quality committee.
Regardless of the position, Hogan brings the same dedication, passion and relentless pursuit of improvement.
“He is a respected catalyst for change who was never satisfied with ‘good enough,’” Troy said.
Hogan believes Children’s Hospital – and the services it provides – is one of the most important assets in this community, and his work reflects that belief.
His term on the board will expire at the end of this year, but his legacy and his relationship with the organization will continue.
“For more than a decade, Mark has dedicated his time, talent and treasure to not only Children’s Hospital, but to all children,” Troy said. “That work will continue.”
