West Penn health system picks ’results oriented’ CEO

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, January 16, 2008
Christoper Olivia, MD, has been tapped as the new CEO of West Penn Allegheny Health System. The 45-year-old hospital executive and practicing ophthalmologist is currently chief executive officer of the nonprofit Cooper Health System in southern New Jersey. West Penn Allegheny has been without a permanent CEO since July 2007, when Jerry Fedele left abruptly amid internal disagreements about a systemwide consolidation.
