ALBERT P. BLACK JR.
NAHSE Delaware Valley Chapter salutes Al Black for his recent recognition as an “Unsung Hero” during NAHSE’s 50th Anniversary Commemoration Conference! Al received this recognition for his remarkable and often behind-the-scenes contributions to the growth and success of the national organization.
Albert P. Black Jr., MBA, FACHE has over 40 years of executive healthcare management expertise in academic medicine, behavioral health and post-acute care settings. Prior to retiring in 2015, he served as the Chief Operating Officer of the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP). Al attended both the University of Pennsylvania and Temple University as a part time student, before finishing his academic career with a Master’s in Business Administration from Temple University.
Al has been a member of NAHSE for much of his professional career and is one of the founding member’s of the Delaware Valley Chapter. Since 2015, he has been serving as an advisor to the chapter’s executive board. His favorite NAHSE DVC event is Emerging Leaders. Al also indicates that his association with NAHSE, and leaders that looked like him, early in his career showed him that “African American’s could aspire to leadership roles.”
One of Al’s proudest accomplishment was establishing the Summer Enrichment Program at HUP in 2011, which has provided an entry into health care for young aspiring minorities. Graduates of this program are involved in the legal profession, health care promotion, health care operations, global health, medical school and the military.
