Davis took over as CEO in March following the retirement of Dr. Eric Bieber.

A native of the Finger Lakes, Davis received his doctorate in public health from Johns Hopkins University. He also has a master’s degree in counseling and consulting psychology from Harvard University and a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Michigan.

He previously worked for the Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, Mich., where he most recently served as senior vice president and CEO of Henry Ford Health System’s South Market and Henry Ford Hospital. Prior to joining Henry Ford, Davis spent more than 25 years with Johns Hopkins Medicine in various positions, including president and CEO of Sibley Memorial Hospital, a nonprofit hospital in Washington, D.C.

Davis told the RBJ in June that his top priorities are focusing on patient safety and quality.

“We need to identify a 21st century health care delivery model,” he said. “We need to determine what we have to do to deliver the highest quality of care at the best value with the best clinical outcomes in the world.”

Davis talked about the opportunity he sees to build on Rochester’s long history of innovation.

“If we can work together collaboratively, we can do phenomenal things,” he said.
