Philip Guarneschelli, FACHE

President

UPMC Pinnacle

Guarneschelli’s primary duties include encouraging, supporting, and leading employees in achieving UPMC’s mission, vision and values. He also has the vital job of listening to patients, their family members, and people in the community to ensure that UPMC is meeting their needs.

He’s been in his current position since 2017, but he’s seen the system grow from Capital Health System to UPMC.

Guarneschelli said he is most proud of the successful integration with UPMC, “allowing us to bring UPMC’s world-class, life-changing medicine to the communities we serve.” Through the integration, the medical services provider has been able to expand services, upgrade facilities, and add providers, which all allow the organization to better serve central Pennsylvania residents.

He shared several life lessons: I try to model a positive mood and tone for everyone to follow. If things go off track, as they will, I return to the basics and set solid a direction. It’s also important to make time for the people you care about.

In addition to spending time with his family, Guarneschelli enjoys coin collecting, clay shooting, and fishing. “I find that I am very present and relaxed when I’m engaged with my hobbies. It’s a great way to recharge,” he said.
