West Chester Hospital President Named “Health Care Star”

West Chester, OH – At just 36 years old, West Chester Hospital President and CEO Kevin Joseph, MD, has accomplished much, which is why he is being recognized nationally as one of the top 25 health care rising stars under age 40 by Becker’s Hospital Review.

An emergency medicine physician by training, Dr. Joseph quickly rose from his residency at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine to become a professor in UC’s emergency medicine program, a director at Vanguard Medical, and medical director for the Cincinnati Police Department SWAT Team. He joined West Chester Hospital as medical director of emergency medicine before the hospital opened in 2009, and that same year was named one of the Cincinnati Business Courier’s Forty Under 40. In September 2010, Dr. Joseph was named president and CEO of West Chester Hospital and senior vice president for UC Health.

All this and more went into consideration for his inclusion in the Becker’s list, titled: “Rising Stars: 25 Healthcare Leaders Under Age 40.” To determine which leaders will obtain a spot on the list each year, Becker’s solicits and tabulates nominations submitted by other leaders in the health care industry. The publication researches and evaluates each nominee based on their work history, accomplishments in the field of health care, leadership style, and dedication toward improving the community, before narrowing it down to those they feel serve as role models to other rising hospital and health system executives.

“I am extraordinarily proud of the many contributions that Dr. Joseph has made to not only West Chester Hospital, but to UC Health and the Greater Cincinnati community.” says Jim Kingsbury, UC Health president and CEO. “Aside from his talents as a skilled emergency physician, Dr. Joseph is an astute business leader who continually demonstrates his commitment to delivering the very best that the health care industry has to offer on a daily basis. We are very fortunate to have him as a member of our senior leadership team and as a member of our community.”

Becker’s Hospital Review is a national, bimonthly publication offering business and legal new and analysis relating to hospitals and health systems.
