After conducting a national search, Children’s National Hospital has named Aldwin Lindsay, M.B.A., executive vice president and chief financial officer (CFO).Lindsay has been serving as interim CFO since the departure of Alec King in October 2020. During this time, he continued to serve as vice president of Payor Financial Relations, overseeing the Payor Contracting, Reimbursement, Decision Support and Budget teams. “To deliver world-class care to every patient, Children’s National Hospital must be financially strong. Aldwin’s deep expertise ensures we are always ready to serve the families who rely upon us,” said Kurt Newman, M.D., president and chief executive officer of Children’s National. “He has proven himself to be an excellent leader, whose counsel I rely upon daily. I am very excited that he has accepted this role.” Lindsay brings almost 27 years of experience in health care finance to the role, the past five serving Children’s National. He led development of the first value-based contract executed under the Clinically Integrated Network. He coordinated the adoption of a new decision support tool that will improve internal reporting, data storage, analytics and payor contract valuations, and he enhanced cost and regulatory reporting structures. “It is a privilege to step into the CFO role at Children’s National Hospital and ensure our teams have the resources they need to help families,” Lindsay said. “I look forward to working to build upon the momentum that has allowed us to consistently be one of the top children’s hospitals in the nation.”Lindsay was originally recruited to Children’s National in October 2015 from Howard University Hospital in Washington, D.C., where he served as chief financial officer. He came to Children’s National as the reimbursement officer and within six months was asked to be the interim controller and very shortly thereafter became vice president of Payor Financial Relations. He is a member of the D.C. Hospital Association’s Government Regulatory and Financial Policy Committee as well as the regional chapter of the Healthcare Financial Management Association. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Finance from the University of Maryland College Park and his M.B.A. in 2012 from the University of Maryland University College.Media Contact: Media | 202-476-4500
