Past Lectures

Treuman Katz, President Emeritus, Seattle Children’s Hospital

Treuman Katz

Treuman Katz is president emeritus of Seattle Children’s. He retired in September 2005 as president and chief executive officer.

Under Katz’s leadership, key partnerships and joint ventures resulted in the successful creation and development of mission-based initiatives that moved Seattle Children’s into national prominence. Katz served as a top executive at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, a 1,000-bed hospital in Los Angeles, for 11 years prior to his tenure at Seattle Children’s.

As a tribute to Katz’s strong leadership and distinguished tenure at Children’s for 26 years, and his efforts to create an environment that recognizes all of the complex ethical issues associated with research, the hospital board of trustees named the bioethics center in his honor, including the establishment of the Treuman Katz Lectureship in Pediatric Bioethics. With Seattle Children’s expanded research mission, aimed at preventing, curing and elimination pediatric disease, his vision for the center has become especially important.
