Geisinger becomes the first member of Risant Health

DANVILLE, Pa. – Megan Brosious, chief administrative officer for Geisinger’s central region, has been named to the Becker’s Hospital Review “110 rural hospital and health system CEOs to know” for 2024. 

“This is a well-deserved honor for Megan and reflects her strong leadership of the dedicated hospital and clinic teams in the central Susquehanna Valley,” said Ron Beer, interim chief operating officer for Geisinger. “She leads by example as she collaborates with staff to bring world-class healthcare to our patients and community. I am grateful for her commitment to continuing Geisinger’s century-long legacy in the area and her continued work for the betterment of the region.”

The list is composed of hospital and healthcare leaders who are committed to bringing top-tier health care services and facilities to rural areas. The hospitals and systems represented on the list invest in expanding services, facilities and teams to bring care close to home without requiring patients to travel long distances to larger cities.

Brosious was recognized on the list for her leadership in the area as she oversees operations of services and the dedicated teams at Geisinger Medical Center, Geisinger Bloomsburg Hospital and Geisinger Shamokin Area Community Hospital, along with Geisinger Healthplex Woodbine.

Becker’s noted that these facilities bring services like Level I trauma care, a comprehensive stroke center and the area’s only children’s hospital to the area. Geisinger’s commitment to quality care was also highlighted by Geisinger Medical Center becoming the first hospital in the country to receive the Joint Commission/American Heart Association Comprehensive Heart Attack Center Certification. Geisinger’s Danville and Shamokin hospitals also recently earned their fourth Magnet® designation, the highest national honor for nursing practice. Nationwide, less than 10% of hospitals are Magnet-designated — and fewer than 2% earn it a fourth time. 

“I’m fortunate to be part of a committed team that brings expertise and compassion to their work every single day,” said Brosious of the honor. “The work we do and the lives that are positively impacted in our hospitals and clinics are the result of the tireless dedication of our entire team. We have served our community for more than a century and we’ll continue to invest in our teams, facilities and services to make better health easier for our neighbors who depend on us for care.”
