Children’s Specialized Hospital names new chief medical, nursing officers

Children’s Specialized Hospital promoted two members of its executive leadership team, the hospital said in a statement released Tuesday.

The New Brunswick-based hospital, an RWJBarnabas Health facility, appointed Dr. Colin O’Reilly vice president and chief medical officer, the company said. And Kelly Keefe Marcoux was named vice president of patient care services and chief nursing officer.

O’Reilly joined CSH in 2015 and most recently served as associate vice president of inpatient medical affairs and section chief of acute inpatient rehabilitation and long-term care facilities, CSH said. Throughout the pandemic, he served as a pediatric adviser for the RWJBH system and to the New Jersey commissioner of health.

“In this role, Dr. O’Reilly will support the overall clinical vision of CSH and provide medical oversight, expertise and leadership to ensure the highest-quality and most compassionate care for our patients and their families,” said Dr. Matthew B. McDonald III, CEO and president. “I am certain that Dr. O’Reilly will serve as an essential resource as we expand and enhance access to our crucial and innovative programs and services.”

Keefe Marcoux most recently served as associate vice president and associate nursing officer at CSH and as vice president of children’s services for RWJBH, the hospital said. She is published in multiple peer-reviewed journals and has presented nationally and internationally on topics related to pediatric care.

Keefe Marcoux earned her BSN from Johns Hopkins University and is currently completing her dissertation for a Ph.D. in nursing at Seton Hall University, CSH said.

“Since joining CSH in 2014, Ms. Keefe Marcoux has served as a valuable member of the CSH family, elevating patient care services throughout the organization,” McDonald said. “I am confident that Ms. Keefe Marcoux will ensure compassionate, high-quality pediatric care is rendered in an environment that encourages and supports true partnership with our patients and their families.”
