A trained emergency medicine physician, Joseph has served as medical director of the West Chester Hospital Emergency Department and continues to devote a portion of his time to providing care to patients in the ER.
The Becker’s Hospital Review editorial team considered peer nominations and editorial research when compiling the list. Hospital and health system leaders do not pay and cannot pay to be included on this list.
