He started at PH DuBois on Oct. 5, 2010 as a system analyst in the department at PH DuBois. He started in his current position on Nov. 7, 2014.

“I am very grateful to work at Penn Highlands,” he added.

“Chris is an example of an employee who executes the core behaviors in the workplace daily,”   Kelly Grube, director of Information Technology for Penn Highlands Healthcare, said. “He brings to the Information Technology Department a blend of technical and customer service based skills. He is always professional and especially embodies the value of collaboration.”

“Chris has the opportunity to work with staff in many Penn Highlands departments to troubleshoot difficult programming, workflow and reporting needs,” Kelly said. “In his role of integration architect, he often has to design ways to solve difficult problems that affect not only the IT Department but also the health system. His analytical ability and perseverance lead to new solutions.”
