May 2, 2017 – Dr. Bernard Healey, professor of health care administration at King’s College, has authored a new textbook, titled “Principles of Healthcare Leadership,” which is scheduled for publication in June by Health Administration Press. 

“Principles of Healthcare Leadership” provides coverage of the topics vital to healthcare leadership success, including creativity and innovation, entrepreneurship, conflict, and team performance. Beginning with foundational leadership theory, including a discussion of power and influence, the book then explores distinct leadership styles and skills, the importance of organizational culture building, and strategies for leading people in healthcare delivery.

Healey previously co-wrote the textbook, titled “Introduction to Health Care Services: Foundations and Challenges,” published by Jossey-Bass Public Health in 2014. The book was co-written with Tina Marie Evans, associate professor and department head of applied health studies at the Pennsylvania College of Technology.

After working for more than 20 years as an epidemiology manager for the Pennsylvania Department of Health in Kingston, Healey became a full-time professor at King’s in 1995. He was an adjunct faculty member at King’s since 1980. Healey earned a bachelor’s degree from King’s, master’s degrees from the Marywood College and Wilkes University, and a doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania. 

He currently teaches courses on leadership and quality management in health care, health care economics, epidemiology, health promotion, and marketing.
