Wolfson names Egan to board of directors


Wolfson Children’s Hospital has named community pediatrician Anne Egan MD to its board of directors. She began her three-year term in April.

Egan, a board-certified pediatrician who has been with The Carithers Pediatric Group since October 2003, has served children and families for more than 28 years throughout her career.

She received her undergraduate degree from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she was a Morehead Scholar. She received her medical degree from the Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, Connecticut, and completed her internship and residency in pediatrics at the UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania.

An Ortega resident, Egan currently serves on the boards of the University of North Florida and the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens. She has also served on the boards of the Jacksonville Children’s Commission Inc., Jacksonville Community Council Inc., PACE Center for Girls Inc. and St. Mark’s Episcopal Day School.

Before moving to Jacksonville, Egan practiced for eight years with Allegheny Pediatrics in Pittsburgh and served as an associate clinical professor of pediatrics for the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

“As a pediatrician in the greater Jacksonville area for 20 years, Dr. Egan has faithfully cared for local children and families and advocated for their physical and mental health well-being as a health care provider and volunteer,” said Allegra Jaros, president of Wolfson Children’s Hospital. “As a physician leader and a mother of four, she is uniquely qualified to serve in this governance role at Wolfson Children’s Hospital as we plan for the future of pediatric health care in our region.”
