Aria Health Names New Chief

From the Philadelphia Business Journal:

Kathleen Kinslow will take over as president and CEO of Aria Health in November.

Kinslow is currently CEO and executive director of Pennsylvania Hospital. At Aria, she will succeed Roy Powell, who stepped down from the posts in February after 14 years to lead Aria’s effort to expand in Bucks County — where the health system is seeking to building a new hospital in Lower Makefield.

Kinslow joined Pennsylvania Hospital in 1992 as director of the school of nurse anesthesia. She continued up the management ranks serving as vice president of clinical services/chief nursing officer and chief operating officer before becoming CEO and executive director.

Too soon to see what this will mean to the Frankford division.  You would think with her background in nursing she might build on the nursing school’s success and expand here in Frankford.  Somebody in Tony Payton’s office should have a talk about that.
