After fellowship training in pediatric critical care medicine at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, Dr. Woods-Hill joined the pediatric critical care medicine faculty at CHOP in 2016. She is a leader in critical care sepsis quality improvement, working to improve sepsis recognition and standardize treatment algorithms through a combination of EMR-based alerts and multidisciplinary bedside huddles.

Dr. Woods-Hill’s research interest is in the intersection between hospital operations and clinician decision making as it relates to preventable pediatric patient harm and pediatric patient safety.

Dr. Woods-Hill is working to develop and pilot a predictive model to better identify high-risk patients and reduce central-line associated bloodstream infection rates. She is a co-investigator and site principal investigator on the AHRQ-funded Bright STAR Collaborative, a multicenter investigation into the impact of diagnostic stewardship for bloodstream infections in the PICU on antibiotic use and antibiotic resistance. Currently she is enrolled in the Masters of Science in Health Policy program at the University of Pennsylvania supported by an NIH T32 training grant, as well as an associate fellow at the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics, where her focus is on translating health policy and health systems-based investigations into reductions in preventable patient harm in the critical care setting.
