PA Hospital's Kathleen Kinslow to lead Aria Health

Aria Health, the three-campus health system in Philadelphia and Bucks County, has named Kathleen Kinslow, a long time hospital administrator to succeed Roy Powell as its president and CEO. In February, Powell announced he would retire after leading the network formerly known as the Frankford Health System since 1996. Powell's retirement came after musician and community activist Joaquin Rivera, 63, died waiting for treatment in the ER at the Frankford campus in Northeast Philadelphia in November 2009. Kinslow, a Philadelphia native, will take the helm of Aria in November. She is currently the chief executive for Pennsylvania Hospital in the University of Pennsylvania Health System. She is a certified registered nurse anesthetist with master's degrees in education, nursing and business administration as well as a PhD in education.
