McLeod succeeds Beth Stautberg, who left Cincinnati Children’s in January. McLeod brings to Cincinnati Children’s nearly 30 years of experience in health care law. She spent the last decade at SCL Health in Denver, an eight-hospital health care system, where she served as senior vice president, chief legal officer and corporate secretary.
Prior to SCL Health, McLeod was VP, chief compliance officer at biotechnology company Biogen Idec; VP, general counsel, chief compliance officer and corporate secretary of the Irving, Texas-based consulting firm Novation, and vice president of legal operations at Plano, Texas-based Triad Hospitals.
“I am looking forward to being part of an organization that is improving lives for children not just in Cincinnati but around the country and the world,” McLeod said in a statement.
