He is a leader who is trusted and respected by his peers. His exceptional leadership ability, wealth of experience in healthcare and unwavering commitment to excellence will be tremendous assets to The Hospital & Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania and the hospitals it serves.”

In addition to his recent appointment to the HAP Board, Macioce is a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives and a member of the Clearfield Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.

Prior to being named president of Penn Highlands Clearfield in 2012, Macioce held leadership roles within Penn Highlands Healthcare, most notably chief operating officer of Penn Highlands DuBois and interim president of Penn Highlands Brookville.
