Pennsylvania-based Geisinger Health has appointed Kevin Roberts as its new executive vice president and chief financial officer (CFO). He succeeds Geisinger's "longest-serving CFO" Kevin Brennan.

Brennan announced his retirement at the end of 2017 after more than 20 years with the health system group. He will remain at Geisinger through June when he will become chair of Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA).

Roberts will assume his new position in April and oversee all financial activities of the integrated health care delivery system. He will also serve on Geisinger's executive leadership team.

Roberts joins Geisinger from BJC HealthCare, St. Louis, Missouri, a 15-hospital health system that includes Barnes-Jewish Hospital and St. Louis Children's Hospital and its academic partner, Washington University School of Medicine, where he served as senior vice president and chief financial officer.

During his more than 30 years of professional experience, Roberts has also held executive-level finance positions at University Hospitals Health System and the Cleveland Clinic, both in Cleveland, Ohio, and Proctor Hospital in Peoria, Illinois.

"Throughout his career, Kevin Roberts has demonstrated a commitment to delivering the best in patient care combined with financial expertise," said David Feinberg, Geisinger president and CEO. "We look forward to the contributions he will make as part of our leadership team and we're confident he has the exceptional skills necessary to fill the shoes left by Kevin Brennan."
