Susan Hoolahan featurePITTSBURGH – UPMC has announced the appointment of Susan E. Hoolahan, M.S.N., R.N., N.E.A.-B.C., as president of UPMC Passavant effective Feb. 1. Hoolahan succeeds David Martin, who as senior vice president, UPMC Health Services Division, and market president of UPMC’s Central Region, now oversees UPMC’s growth and expansion across central Pennsylvania. 


Hoolahan has devoted her career to UPMC, starting in 1981 as a staff nurse at UPMC Shadyside, progressing through increasingly responsible leadership positions, including her most recent role as chief nursing officer and vice president of Operations and Patient Care Services at UPMC Passavant. 


“Throughout her career in health care, Susan has been a long-time instrumental leader — fully committed to patient-centered care and providing an outstanding experience for our patients and staff,” said Leslie C. Davis, senior vice president, UPMC, and executive vice president and chief operating officer, UPMC Health Services Division. 


“We are so proud of the highly specialized and compassionate care that we provide at UPMC Passavant,” said Hoolahan. “I am honored to lead this hospital as we continue to demonstrate our commitment to the people from the northern suburbs of Pittsburgh who choose us and rely on us.”
