Riley Children’s Health Welcomes A New President

Accomplished pediatric healthcare executive Gil Peri is the new president of Riley Children’s Health. Peri’s first day with IU Health and Riley was June 28, but he is no stranger to leading pediatric healthcare institutions. He comes to Riley from Hartford, CT where he most recently served as President and Chief Operating Officer of Connecticut Children’s Medical Center.

Peri has a reputation for establishing a clear vision and roadmap to deliver value for patients and families. With more than 20 years of success creating and executing strategy differentiation, leading complex operations and partnering to achieve the best outcomes for children and adults.  He is recognized as an inspiring leader committed to value, innovation and continual improvement.

Additionally, Peri understands Riley is more than just a hospital. He sees the impact Riley can have on the whole child – addressing mental, behavioral and physical health. Part of Peri’s vision is finding more ways to connect Riley with patients and families throughout the continuum, from prevention through care and back into the community. He is also passionate about ensuring that all Hoosier children have access to the world-class expertise of Riley Children’s Health.

As he settles into his new role, Peri looks forward to sharing more about his vision for making Riley an even better children’s health system in the future. He is committed to Riley patients and families, and supporting the Riley Children’s Foundation and donors as they share their time, talent, and treasure.
