Scott Steiner, President and CEO of Phoebe Putney Health System, Named Chair-Elect of the Georgia Hospital Association Board of Trustees

Atlanta, GA | November 22, 2023 – Scott Steiner, FACHE, was named chair-elect of the Board of Trustees of the Georgia Hospital Association (GHA) on Nov. 2. Steiner, who has served on the GHA Board since March 2020, will lead the 2025 Board in developing strategies for GHA hospital members, advocating for the highest quality care for patients, and supporting adequate reimbursement for hospitals.

“Scott Steiner is a strong advocate for health care in Georgia, and his passion for high-quality patient care and extensive leadership skills will serve him well in this role,” said GHA President and CEO Caylee Noggle. “We appreciate his dedication to the GHA Board of Trustees, and we look forward to his continued leadership.”

Steiner has served as president and CEO of Phoebe Putney Health System in Albany since 2019. He came to his current position from Tenet Healthcare, where he served in leadership positions at two hospitals. He was chief operating officer (COO) at MacNeal Hospital in Chicago, Illinois for five years before serving as CEO of the hospital. From there he served as CEO for Detroit Medical Center, an eight-hospital system in Detroit, Michigan, where he oversaw management of four of the system’s hospitals, including a Level I trauma and burn center, two academic Magnet hospitals, and a heart hospital.

In response to the national workforce shortage, Steiner has worked to establish partnerships with colleges and secondary schools within Phoebe Putney Health System’s region and has overseen the development of innovative collaborations to expand nursing programs and help grow the pipeline of future health care professionals. Last year, Gov. Brian Kemp appointed Steiner to the state’s Healthcare Workforce Commission, where he has helped address challenges in the hiring and retention of health care workers.

Steiner serves on the boards of the Albany Chamber of Commerce, the Georgia Chamber Board of Governors, and the Georgia Diversity Council. He also participates in several local and state groups, including the Rotary Club of Albany and the Georgia Chamber Health and Wellness Committee. In 2021 he was named to the list of “100 Most Influential Georgians” by Georgia Trend Magazine.

Steiner received his Master of Business Administration with an emphasis on health services from Webster University in St. Louis, Missouri and his Bachelor of Science in Management from Missouri State University in Springfield, Missouri.
