    Published: 06/21/2012

    PHILADELPHIA (June 21, 2012) – Barry R. Freedman, President and CEO of Einstein Healthcare Network has announced that Beth Duffy has been appointed Chief Operating Officer of Einstein Medical Center Montgomery.

    The promotion is the latest advance in Duffy’s 28-year-career at Einstein. Most recently, as Vice President and Director, Activation Planning, Duffy coordinated the planning and activation for Einstein Medical Center Montgomery, collaborating with Montgomery Health System leaders, physicians and employees to ensure the new 146-bed facility was patient-focused and consistent with Einstein’s “vision and mission,” Freedman said.

    “Over the last 28 years, Beth has held increasingly advanced leadership positions in many Einstein clinical, regulatory and support services operations, providing her with strong knowledge and expertise in all aspects of healthcare operations,” Freedman said. “Her attention to detail and her talent for seeing and realizing Einstein’s ‘big picture’ have truly distinguished her performance.”

    Duffy will manage the operations at Einstein Medical Center Montgomery, the first new hospital to be built in Southeastern Pennsylvania in more than a decade, opening in East Norriton this September. Duffy will lead the executive team of administrative and clinical leaders in all day to day operations. Consistent with Einstein Healthcare Network’s leadership structure, as COO Duffy will report directly to Freedman.

    According to Duffy, her interest in healthcare began when she was 12 years old. On her way home from school in the Philadelphia suburbs, she stood outside a chain link fence and watched a neighborhood hospital being built from the ground up. Little did she know that one day, she’d be responsible for running a new hospital herself.

    “I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as Chief Operating Officer and am committed to ensuring that Einstein Medical Center Montgomery is the area’s medical destination, providing compassionate, high-quality care with the highest safety standards to the residents of Montgomery County," Duffy said.

    Duffy received her MBA in Health Administration from Temple University in 1984. She graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 1982 with a BA in Social Work.

    Duffy has more than a professional interest in the new medical center, she is a part of the community it serves. Duffy lives in Upper Gwynedd Township with her husband, Tom. The couple has two daughters.
