Lori Brown, MD

Dr. Brown serves as a member of our pediatric hospitalist team, and leads our efforts in quality improvement in the newborn nursery.

In her spare time, Dr. Brown would describe herself as an avid runner who enjoys tennis, and who can’t wait to do some real traveling. But the most fun thing is that she is a rabid car enthusiast who spends a week every year in Carmel during the Concours de Elegance at Pebble Beach. She and her son restored a 1938 Packard that won First Place at the Montecito Motor Classic Car show in 2016.
