Patrick J. Gavin was recently named Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Crozer-Keystone Health System.

In this role, Gavin is now responsible for the oversight of all Crozer-Keystone hospitals and business units. Gavin, who has served as president of Crozer-Chester Medical Center since 2010, will retain that position in addition to his new role.

“I’m excited to take on a greater role within Crozer-Keystone Health System. I look forward to working with the many outstanding people throughout Crozer-Keystone to build upon the health system’s strengths and expand our reach,” Gavin says, “I’d like to thank Joan Richards and the Board of Trustees for their confidence in my abilities.”

He has reorganized units at Crozer and is leading the medical center’s transition to having all private patient rooms. He has also helped the medical center make positive gains in many areas, including length of stay, patient satisfaction, employee safety, expense reduction, information technology and other areas.

Gavin holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Villanova University, an MBA in information systems from Saint Joseph’s University and a master’s degree in public health from Columbia University.

Before coming to the health system, Gavin served as executive vice president and chief operating officer of Reading Hospital and Medical Center in Reading, Pa.
