Kevin B. Mahoney will become the next CEO of the University of Pennsylvania Health System. Mahoney will assume his post July 1, succeeding Ralph W. Muller, who has served as the health system’s CEO since 2003.
Mahoney is a 23-year veteran of leadership roles at Penn Medicine, currently serving as the Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer for UPHS, as well as the Executive Vice Dean for Integrative Services for the Perelman School of Medicine.
Mahoney developed the master plan concept for the former Philadelphia Civic Center site, known today as the Ruth and Raymond Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine and the Roberts Proton Therapy Center. These facilities, together with the Smilow Translational Research Center and the Jordan Medical Education Center, became the nation’s first single building to fully integrate biomedical research, clinical care and medical education.
Mahoney, a Millersville University graduate, planned and now leads the Pavilion project on Penn’s University City campus, adjacent to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. The Pavilion, set to open in 2021, is the largest building project in Penn’s history and will be the most advanced inpatient hospital facility in the nation.
