NSMC Announces New Chair of Pediatrics
By Kevin Ronningen

North Shore Medical Center (NSMC) and MassGeneral for Children at North Shore Medical Center are pleased to announce that Mark Mandell, M.D., will become the new Chair of Pediatrics effective June 1, 2014. Dr. Mandell returns to the North Shore from Partners Community Healthcare, Inc. (PCHI) where he is currently serving as Chief Medical Officer. NSMC’s current Chair of Pediatrics, Edward Bailey, M.D., will step down after serving in this role for the past 10 years.

Dr. Mandell began his career in Salem in 1983 and has continued to see patients at Pediatric Associates of Greater Salem for more than two decades. Along with his new role at NSMC, Dr. Mandell will continue to see patients at his outpatient pediatric practice.

A graduate of Yale University and Tufts University School of Medicine, Dr. Mandell completed his medical training at the Boston Floating Hospital of New England Medical Center. Board certified by the American Board of Pediatrics, he is a fellow at the American Academy of Pediatrics.

North Shore Medical Center would like to thank Dr. Bailey for his many years of leadership, dedicated service and compassion for our pediatric patients and their families. Dr. Bailey joined NSMC in 2001 and became Chair of Pediatrics in 2004; he is also well recognized for his child advocacy and community outreach efforts. He was the guiding force behind the creation of the Children’s Trust Fund, an organization that provides support to families and helps prevent child abuse. His passion for our youngest patients is evident as he plans to continue as a part-time pediatrician with Pediatric Healthcare Associates.
