On Friday, April 12, Scott Becker was inducted into the Greater Johnstown/Cambria County Business Hall of Fame. Becker (seen here with his wife Cheryl on a vacation to Australia) has a long and distinguished career in healthcare, having held leadership positions at Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, Butler Regional Health System, and UPMC Health System.

But he is most known locally from his service as president and CEO of Conemaugh Health System from 2005 to 2016, through its sale to Duke LifePoint Healthcare. In that position, he worked closely with us when we were the Conemaugh Health Foundation, and into our transition to becoming 1889 Foundation. In fact, he currently serves as vice chair of 1889’s board of directors. We are grateful for his leadership and contributions to our community. Congratulations, Scott!
