Children’s of Alabama CEO Changes

Tom Shufflebarger

Children’s of Alabama President and CEO Mike Warren is retiring effective June 1. He will be succeeded by Tom Shufflebarger, who currently serves as chief operating officer and senior executive vice president.

“Together, we have accomplished a great deal over these past 13 years, the crown jewel of which is the Benjamin Russell Hospital for Children. That addition transformed our campus and allowed us to move transplant surgery and cardiovascular services to Children’s — truly making us a comprehensive pediatric medical facility,” Warren said. “Along the way we greatly expanded many services, making tremendous progress in fulfilling our mission to the children and families of Alabama. With Tom to take the helm, Children’s is positioned to achieve even greater things.”

At Children’s, Shufflebarger has managed the hospital’s daily operations and policy decisions, as well as directing the operations and development of Children’s Physician Services, including Pediatric Practice Solutions, Hospital Ambulatory Care Services and business relationships with Health Services Foundation and hospital-based physicians.
