Amy Lambert

Senior Vice President, CHOP Care Network

Princeton, Roxborough, King of Prussia, the Brandywine Valley, South Philadelphia. In the past 12 months, CHOP has opened or renovated outpatient centers in each of those locations, making it CHOP’s biggest expansion to date. Amy Lambert of Wayne is in charge.

Have you had a mentor? 

I have friends and colleagues with whom I have honest conversations. They test me and help me think broader. They give me self-vigor, and from that comes energy, confidence and vision. I try to pass that along to the people I mentor at CHOP.

What was the turning point in your career?

Accepting the position at CHOP in 2006. Immediately before that, I was associate executive director of clinical practices at the University of Pennsylvania Health System—a very different job and different workplace. There was risk associated with this job because I was coming in as a leader and acclimating to a new culture. 

What has been your biggest challenge?

One is letting my incredibly talented team find solutions. I’m a natural problem solver and I enjoy it, but I have struggled to let other people do that. 

What accomplishment are you most proud of?

I’m in the midst of a year that will be the highlight of my whole career. I’m leading a team that is operating a tremendous expansion of CHOP. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
