Moore was recognized for his 20 plus years of leadership at Children’s Specialized Hospital and for the expertise he has provided to various committees throughout the healthcare industry over the years.

During his tenure, he has guided a team of 1,400 employees to increase access to care for children with special health care needs throughout the country. Due to Moore’s unwavering dedication, Children’s Specialized Hospital, the nation’s leading provider of inpatient and outpatient care for children birth to 21 years, has expanded from treating 2,000 children per year to over 34,000 annually at 13 locations across New Jersey.

“To be recognized by my alma mater for the work that I have done, with the tools their education provided me, is incredibly humbling,” said Moore. “I am thankful for all of the opportunities Rider University and Children’s Specialized Hospital have given me, and I look forward to collaborating with our patients and families to build a world where all children can reach their full potential.”
