Jeffrey A. Romoff

  • President and Chief Executive Officer

Jeffrey A. Romoff is the President and Chief Executive Officer 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 $16 billion global health enterprise under Mr. Romoff’s leadership. With 80,000 employees, UPMC is the largest non-governmental employer in Pennsylvania and is transforming health care by integrating more than 30 academic, community and specialty hospitals, more than 600 doctors’ offices and outpatient sites, and a 3.4 million-member health insurance services division, and international and commercial services. Affiliated with the University of Pittsburgh Schools of the Health Sciences, UPMC is inventing new models of accountable, cost-efficient and patient-centered care. UPMC contributes more than $900 million annually in community benefits to the region and has sparked economic revitalization in western Pennsylvania by nurturing new businesses based on its innovative science, technology and medicine. UPMC’s commercial and global initiatives include strategic business relationships with some of the world’s leading multinational corporations, and clinical operations and consulting relationships in countries that include Italy, Ireland, India, Canada, China, Japan, Singapore and Kazakhstan.

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. Through this office, Western Psychiatric was the first academic psychiatric facility to offer organized continuing education programs to practitioners in communities throughout western Pennsylvania.

In 1975, Mr. Romoff became Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic's Administrator and Associate Director. While he was in a leadership position at Western Psychiatric, 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.
