Senior Vice President / Regional Chief Operating Officer
Penn State Health Hampden Medical Center and Penn State Health Holy Spirit Medical Center
Snyder has been in his current position two years.
The most rewarding part of his job is working alongside an incredibly talented group of physicians, leaders and staff, who are committed to improving the health of the communities that they serve.
Snyder said he has been privileged and blessed to work with many talented leaders during his career.
His most significant mentor was Lynn Miller, retired executive vice president for Geisinger Health System.
“Lynn was always willing to listen; she built trust that way and leveraged this skill to be one of the most effective health care leaders that I know. Lynn was genuinely interested in my career and professional development and that inspired me to want to do the same for the team members that I lead,” he said.
He said the health care industry must continue to evolve to a model of total health.
“Our success needs to be tied both to our ability to provide highly reliable, safe and effective care in our physician practices, outpatient settings and hospitals, and to our ability to improve the overall health of the populations that we serve,” Snyder said.
