Richard P. Miller, former President and CEO of Virtua Health, has joined High Performing Culture to lead its new healthcare division.

“Rich’s reputation as a pioneer in healthcare, combined with his highly-regarded passion for culture, represents a tremendous asset for our firm,” HPC CEO/Founder David Friedman said in a statement.

Miller played a key role in the formation of Virtua in 1998 at which time he was named President and CEO for the new health system. He was the driving force behind a culture that focused on creating an outstanding customer experience, achieved by investing in employees and hiring for values. Under his tenure, Virtua was named a Best Place to Work by the Philadelphia Business Journal for 10 consecutive years.

“High Performing Culture’s approach to institutionalizing culture mirrors everything we did so successfully at Virtua, but they’ve created a methodology for it that can easily be taught to other organizations,” said Miller.  “I think we have a real opportunity to raise the bar in the delivery of healthcare with HPC’s Fundamentals System.  For me personally, it represents the opportunity to focus my energies on two things about which I’m most passionate — healthcare and culture.”

Among his many honors, Miller was named Human Resources CEO of the Year by HR Department of the Year Awards. He received the CEO IT Achievement Award from Modern Healthcare magazine, was named Healthcare CEO of the Year by the Philadelphia Business Journal. He has been named among The 100 Most Powerful People in New Jersey Business by NJBIZ magazine, one of the 50 Most Powerful People in Health Care by NJBIZ, a "Person to Watch" by Philadelphia Magazine, and recognized nationally on the list of “291 Hospital and Health System Leaders to Know” by Becker’s Hospital Review. A graduate of Mount St. Mary's College, Miller earned his MBA from Southern Illinois University.
