CEO Steven Johnson: Leading Susquehanna Health and the Hospital Association of Pennsylvania

Steven Johnson has served as the president and CEO of Williamsport, Pa.-based Susquehanna Health since 2004.

As the leader of Susquehanna, Mr. Johnson oversees a nonprofit integrated system that includes four hospitals, home health, hospice, nursing homes and pre-hospital paramedic services. He previously served as the executive vice president and COO.

Susquehanna Health has grown and made several new partnerships with Mr. Johnson at the helm. For example, the system affiliated with Wellsboro, Pa.-based Laurel Health System, partnered with Siemens to create a technology beta site and affiliated with the Cleveland Clinic for heart care.

In 2014, Mr. Johnson will become the chairman of the Hospital & Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania.  He has several priorities for his time leading the organization. "One of the things that's become obvious to us is there will be a lot of organizations that look different than hospitals delivering various types of patient care in the future," he told Becker's Hospital Review in a previous interview. "One priority is to get our arms around this evolution to assure our association's ability to be relevant to them while continuing to provide value to our more traditional healthcare provider systems."

Other priorities he has for his tenure as HAP chairman include working effectively with physicians and taking a different approach to working with consumers.

In addition to his work with HAP, Mr. Johnson has served as chairman the board of directors of VHA Pennsylvania and on the Finance/Audit Committee of VHA. He is also a Fellow in the American College of Healthcare Executives.
