Dr. Feinberg recently joined Geisinger after serving as President of the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) Health System; Chief Executive Officer, UCLA Hospital System; and Associate Vice Chancellor, UCLA Health Sciences.
WVIA-TV is northeast Pennsylvania's PBS affiliate. "Meet the Presidents" features in-depth interviews with college, university and hospital executives to help viewers get to know their local leaders. Host Larry Vojtko and Dr. Feinberg discussed a wide range of topics, from Geisinger's plan to broaden areas of service and the diseases that commonly affect patients in the community, to Dr. Feinberg's transition from Los Angeles to Danville.
During the interview, which was filmed in front of a studio audience of Geisinger employees of the month from across the system and special guests, Dr. Feinberg spoke candidly about Geisinger's culture and the importance of patient care, a topic on which the new leader is heavily focused. He urged all Geisinger employees to "unleash [their] potential" to make every patient experience the best one possible.
"I'm dedicated to reaching a wide audience right now of Geisinger employees, leaders and the community we serve," said Dr. Feinberg. "Through events such as 'Meet the Presidents' I'm excited to reiterate Geisinger's commitment to patient care and my vision for our bright future."
