The association’s board of directors chose Frazee after a national search. He has been serving as the vice president of government affairs at the Maryland Hospital Association, where he has worked for eight years.

He’ll begin his new role Oct. 2.

Frazee said he’s honored to work on behalf of Delaware’s hospitals and health systems.

“I am ready to work with DHA’s members, policymakers, and stakeholders to tackle the complex challenges facing healthcare and advance the well-being of Delaware’s communities,” Frazee said in a statement.

Before joining the Maryland Hospital Association in 2015, Frazee served as director of public policy for the Maryland Association of Community Services, which represents over 100 nonprofit agencies helping people with developmental disabilities.

Dr. David Tam, board chair of the Delaware Healthcare Association, hailed Frazee’s experience and energy.

“Delaware is growing rapidly, and our healthcare landscape is evolving just as fast.  Changes in patient demographics and population shifts, as well as technology, reimbursement practices, and the growing concerns with the adequacy of the healthcare workforce are all increasing the need for Delaware’s great health systems to work towards increasing our inter-dependence,” Tam said in a statement.

Daily will begin her new role on Nov. 1. She will succeed CEO Teri Nestel, who is retiring after spending four decades in philanthropy.

The miracle network is a national nonprofit that works to raise money for local children’s hospitals. The organization is celebrating its 40th anniversary and has raised $8.5 billion, and the network is looking to build on that success.

“I’m honored to serve as the next president and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals,” Daily said in a statement.

“I have a deep appreciation for the impact children’s hospitals have in their communities – both of my children, who are now adults, were born prematurely and received care at my local member hospital. Those firsthand experiences and my life’s work in the healthcare industry have prepared me for this moment and I’m eager to lead this organization forward,” Daily said.

Barbara Joers, Children’s Miracle Network Hospital’s Board Chair and president and CEO of Gillette Children’s in St. Paul, Minn, praised Daily’s leadership qualities.

“Aimee’s energy, intellectual curiosity and strategic acumen will guide us into a new era of raising critical funds to fulfill the most urgent needs of our member children’s hospitals. Under her guidance, I’m confident we can make a bigger impact on local communities by supporting their children’s healthcare needs,” Joers said in a statement.
