Former Kennedy Health CEO Devine joins consulting firm as health care lead

Joseph Devine, the former CEO of South Jersey’s Kennedy Health, has joined consulting firm Competitive Business Solutions as its health care practice lead, the Totowa-based firm announced this week.

Devine led Kennedy through its 2018 merger with Jefferson Health and then served in a leadership role with that health system.

He is chair of the board of directors of the Chamber of Commerce Southern New Jersey and a former chair of the New Jersey Hospital Association.

“I’m excited to work with CBS,” he said in a prepared statement. “The CBS team has the vision, passion and experience to bring solutions to health care in a way that is much more personal for organizations, based on my experience as a CEO. Health care is at a critical point, and I’m thrilled to work with executives and their organizations to define and support strategies needed to be successful in this new environment.”
