Geisinger has named Janet Tomcavage its new chief nursing executive, effective Aug. 1.
Tomcavage has been with Geisinger, which owns Holy Spirit Hospital in Camp Hill, since 2014 as its chief population officer, focusing on changes in care delivery, according to the health care company.
“Janet brings outstanding experience in the full scope of nursing and all aspects of inpatient and outpatient care, and I’m excited for her and for all our nurses as she transitions into her new leadership role,” Jaewon Ryu, Geisinger’s president and chief executive officer, said in a press release.
Tomcavage previously worked to launch Geisinger at Home, the company’s home-based care system, and was also chief administrative officer for Geisinger Health Plan, the company’s insurance arm.
She is a graduate of Bloomsburg University and Misericordia University, and was the first Geisinger nurse to win the Pennsylvania Nightingale Award for clinical excellence in nursing.
Geisinger, which operates a 13-campus hospital network in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, as well as a 600,000-patient insurance plan, has been under pressure in central Pennsylvania recently from UPMC-Pinnacle and Penn State Health, both of which have announced multiple new facilities and expansion plans
