President & CEO
Holmberg is helping to shape the future of the fast-evolving health care industry. He has proactively and regularly engaged with trade associations, regulators, peer organizations, strategic partners, and government entities, both regional and national, to resolve critical health care issues and ensure the equitable treatment of Highmark Health’s patients, policyholders, and business customers.
Holmberg joined Highmark Health in 2007 and was named president and CEO in May 2014.
Highmark Health is a $21 billion blended health organization that includes one of America’s largest Blue Cross Blue Shield insurers and a growing regional hospital and physician network.
Under Holmberg’s leadership, Highmark Health navigated the tumultuous post-Affordable Care Act years as well as the financial turnaround of Allegheny Health Network, which was nearing bankruptcy when it was acquired by Highmark Inc. in 2013. In addition to delivering 11 consecutive quarters of positive operating income prior to the COVID 19 pandemic, the health delivery system has expanded to include 14 hospitals in western Pennsylvania, as well as five multi-specialty medical malls.
In 2019, Holmberg negotiated an agreement with the Pennsylvania Attorney General to provide residents of western Pennsylvania with continued access to the region’s two leading health systems.
