  • President and CEO, UPMC

Jeffrey A. Romoff is the President and CEO of UPMC, one of the leading nonprofit health systems in the United States.

Headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, UPMC has evolved from an outstanding academic medical center into a fully integrated $11 billion global health enterprise under Mr. Romoff’s leadership. With more than 62,000 employees, UPMC is the largest employer in Pennsylvania and is transforming health care by integrating 22 hospitals, 400 doctors’ offices and outpatient sites, a health insurance services division, and international and commercial services. Affiliated with the University of Pittsburgh Schools of the Health Sciences, UPMC has sparked a new economy in western Pennsylvania by nurturing new businesses based on innovative science, technology, and medicine to invent new models of accountable, cost-efficient and patient-centered care. UPMC contributes more than $887 million annually in community benefits. Its commercial and global initiatives include strategic business relationships withsome of the world’s leading multinational corporations, and clinical operations and consulting relationships in Italy, Ireland, China, Japan, Singapore, Kazakhstan and other countries.

Mr. Romoff began his career at the University of Pittsburgh in 1973 as the Director of the Office of Education and Regional Programming at Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic (WPIC). Through this office, WPIC was the first academic psychiatric facility to offer organized continuing education programs to practitioners in communities throughout western Pennsylvania.

In 1975, Mr. Romoff became WPIC's Administrator and Associate Director. While he was in a leadership position at WPIC, it became the nation's leading psychiatric research center, receiving more funding from the National Institute of Mental Health than any other institution and was one of the first mental health organizations in the country to focus on the then emergent field of biological psychiatry.

From 1986 to 1992, Mr. Romoff was Executive Vice President of UPMC and Vice President for Health Sciences of the University of Pittsburgh. In 1991, he also assumed the role of interim Senior Vice President of Business and Finance for the University of Pittsburgh. In 1992, he was named President of UPMC and in 2006 he became President and CEO.

A native of New York City, Mr. Romoff received a Bachelor of Science degree and graduated magna cum laude from the City College of New York. He received a Master's degree in philosophy with a specialty in political science at Yale University. He is also the recipient of an Honorary Doctorate of Public Service from Chatham College and an Honorary Doctorate of Science and Technology from Carnegie Mellon University.
