West Chester, OH—November 5, 2014—Kevin Joseph, MD, president and CEO of West Chester Hospital, has been included in a national list of 100 Hospital and Health System Leaders by Becker’s Hospital Review, a health care business analysis publication for health care executives. This is the fourth year Joseph has been recognized by Becker’s — from 2011-2013 he was named among of the nation’s “Rising Stars” in the health care industry as one of the 25 Healthcare Leaders Under 40.

Becker’s Hospital Review recognizes the top 100 physician leaders of hospitals and health systems based on leaders’ health care experience, accolades and commitment to quality care. This list is not an endorsement of hospitals, health systems or associated health care providers, and organizations cannot pay for inclusion on this list.

Prior to being appointed the President and CEO of West Chester Hospital (WCH), Joseph served as the medical director of the WCH Emergency Department. As the first physician involved in the building of the new medical center, he was instrumental in the development of the medical practice throughout the hospital.  In addition to his leadership role at West Chester Hospital, Joseph serves as a senior vice-president for UC Health. He also is an associate professor of emergency medicine at the University of Cincinnati. Joseph has been recognized by Cincinnati Magazine as a “Best Doctor,” and the Cincinnati Business Courier recognized him as a one of their annual “40 under 40” leaders and listed him within their “Who’s Who in Cincinnati” health care publication.

Joseph obtained three bachelor degrees (biomedical engineering, materials science and psychology) from Johns Hopkins University. He received his medical degree from the Vanderbilt School of Medicine where he served as president of the medical student body. He completed his residency at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine as a chief resident. Joseph continues to serve as an emergency medicine physician with the University of Cincinnati Physicians group, and continues to devote a portion of his time to providing care to patients in the West Chester Hospital emergency department.
