Scott Steiner

President & Chief Executive Officer, Phoebe Putney Health System


Scott Steiner became President and CEO of Phoebe Putney Health System on March 1, 2019.  He began his career in healthcare administration in East St. Louis, IL in 1992.  Before leading Phoebe, he worked as an executive with Tenet Healthcare Corporation for 12 years, most recently as CEO of four Tenet hospitals in Detroit, MI.

Scott brought his resolute commitment to patient safety to Phoebe, initiating a journey for the health system to become a High Reliability Organization.  He also developed Phoebe Focus, a new strategy, philosophy, plan and approach to guide Phoebe into the future.  It includes quality and safety initiatives and a $250 million investment in capital improvements to transform the delivery of healthcare throughout southwest Georgia.

When southwest Georgia became an early coronavirus hotspot, Scott was one of the first healthcare executives in the country to raise alarms about the startling amount of supplies and resources required to mount an effective response to the outbreak.  By setting up a public coronavirus hotline and initiating drive-through testing sites, Phoebe blazed a trail that many other health systems followed.  Under Scott’s guidance, Phoebe also became a beacon of transparency, sharing daily updates on its number of COVID-19 cases and its response to the pandemic.
