Two longtime hospital managers are headed for new jobs as both Aria Health and Pennsylvania Hospital announced changes Monday in top leadership.
Kathleen Kinslow, a nurse anesthetist, who is executive director of Pennsylvania Hospital, will become president and chief executive officer of Aria Health in November.
Kinslow succeeds Roy Powell, 56, who has run the 484-bed system since 1996.
Meanwhile, Penn Medicine announced that Kinslow would be replaced Nov. 1 by R. Michael Buckley, a doctor who is chair of internal medicine and chief medical officer of Pennsylvania Hospital. The Philadelphia hospital has 515 beds.
Buckley, 64, received his undergraduate and medical degrees from Yale University. He did his residency in internal medicine at the University of North Carolina and his infectious-disease fellowship at Penn. He has worked at Pennsylvania Hospital for more than 30 years.
