Kevin B. Mahoney has been named Chief Executive Officer of the University of Pennsylvania Health System (UPHS), effective July 1, 2019, and Vice Dean for Integrative Services for Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. Previously he served as the Senior Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer UPHS.
Mahoney joined UPHS in 1996 and served as Executive Director of Penn’s primary care physician network and as CEO of Phoenixville Hospital. He also 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.

Most recently, as EVP and Chief Administrative Officer, Mahoney oversaw the implementation of a common electronic health record platform across five hospitals, numerous outpatient clinics, and home care -- the only comprehensive system of its kind in the region. He is currently leading the Penn Pavilion project, the largest building project in Penn’s history and the most advanced inpatient hospital facility in the nation, set to open in 2021.
A senior fellow at Penn’s Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics, Mahoney is a co-founder of the Penn Medicine Center for Health Care Innovation.
He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in economics from Millersville University and an MBA and Doctorate in Business Administration from Temple University. He serves on numerous boards for non-profit organizations in the Delaware Valley, including Puentes de Salud and Community Volunteers in Medicine. He has been recognized for his community and volunteer work, most recently as the recipient of the 2018 Heart of Philadelphia Award by the American Heart Association.
