Penn State Health
Massini been in the position of CEO for three years and has been with Penn State Health for seven years.
He said there are so many rewarding aspects to his role. He enjoys the ability to interact first-hand with staff and patients and to hear from them about the amazing things we do at Penn State Health.
It’s also been rewarding to see Penn State Health system grow from a stand-alone academic medical center in Hershey to a larger network with multiple access points that serve patients throughout Central Pennsylvania. And, so much of this was accomplished amid a pandemic.
Massini said the commitment and dedication of all of our health care workers inspires him daily.
“What health care workers have done during the last 2 ½ years is nothing less than remarkable. Despite the risks to themselves and their families, health care workers put their patients and our community front and center,” he said. “We naturally think of our physicians, nurses and other providers, but the reality is that there are so many more people behind the scenes that contribute to serving our patients and our community.”
Massini said he’s had many professional mentors throughout his career, but the most significant “mentors” have been his parents.
“They instilled in me core values that I believe have served me well personally and professionally, such as work effort, humility, integrity, compassion, service to others and so many other key leadership skills. Neither of them worked in what would be considered professional careers or leadership roles, but how they treated people in their day-to-day lives had a great impact on me,” he said.
