David Feinberg, M.D., MBA

President and CEO

Geisinger Health System

Dr. David T. Feinberg is president and CEO of Geisinger Health System, one of the nation’s largest health services organizations known for reinventing medical care.

Feinberg earned his undergraduate degree at the University of California, Berkeley, and graduated with distinction from the University of Health Sciences/Chicago Medical School. He earned an M.B.A. from Pepperdine University.

Named to the 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare as well as the Top Ten of the 50 Most Influential Physician Executives and Leaders by Modern Healthcare, Feinberg’s numerous awards and recognitions include Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society; Leadership, Vision and Commitment Honoree by the National Health Foundation; and the Cancro Academic Leadership Award from the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry. Feinberg is a well-known national speaker, especially on the subject of patient experience, and has published numerous articles.

Prior to joining Geisinger, Feinberg served as CEO of UCLA’s hospitals and associate vice chancellor of UCLA Health Sciences, as well as president of UCLA Health System.

The move from the west coast to the east has given him an opportunity to notice what is important to Pennsylvanians.

“I’ve learned that everyone knows everyone in this part of the country. ... People who live here tend to stay here. In LA, everyone is from somewhere else and there is less of a ‘network.’ Our challenge at Geisinger is to do the right thing every time, because if we don’t, everyone in town will hear about it,” he said.
