He has spent his career on the front lines of the health care field.With all hospital efforts focused on fighting the pandemic, Robin played a big role in supporting his team emotionally along with working on hospital strategy, planning crisis responses, and coming up with contingency plans.
Robin earned a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Penn State University and a master’s degree in nursing administration and Master of Business Administration from College of Mount Saint Vincent.
Robin continues to contribute to MHS by participating in Career Day programs over the years. In fact, he volunteered for the 2021 online career panels.
“As a leader at my hospital, it’s my responsibility to take care of others and invest in others so they can be successful,” Robin shared. “I didn’t get to where I am today because I’m a great leader. I got to where I am today because people cared about me and helped me—and that all started at Milton Hershey School.”
