Kaiser Permanente executive named to University of the Pacific’s Board of Regents

Jun 29, 2018

A longtime leader in health care has been named to University of the Pacific's Board of Regents.

Corwin N. Harper, senior vice president and area manager for Kaiser Permanente in the Central Valley, will begin his three-year term on July 1.

"We are pleased to have Corwin join our Board of Regents. As we continue to develop innovative programs for training future health care professionals, Corwin's extensive experience in managed health care will be invaluable," said Pacific President Pamela A. Eibeck.

Harper has been with Kaiser Permanente since 1996 and has held a variety of leadership positions in Fresno, Napa and Solano counties, and previously served as senior vice president and chief diversity and inclusion officer for Kaiser Permanente Northern California.

In his current role, Harper is responsible for the medical centers in Modesto and Manteca, as well as health plan services, hospital operations and services provided to members outside of the hospital setting, including continuing care, pharmacy and health plan regulatory services. In addition, he has leadership responsibility for Kaiser Permanente's partnership with St. Joseph's Medical Center in Stockton.

Harper lives out Kaiser Permanente's mission to improve the lives of its members and the communities they serve. He is actively involved in the community and has served on a variety of boards, including those for California Association of Hospitals and Health Systems, California Partnership for the San Joaquin Valley, Hospital Council of Northern and Central California, Port City LLC, and Solano Coalition for Better Health. In addition, he has served on advisory boards at California State University, Fresno, and California State University, Stanislaus.

He is also a fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives, a group for which he served as a regent (2002-04). He is an at-large executive committee member of the National Association of Health Services Executives. And he is part of the inaugural cohort for The Leverage Network's Healthcare Board initiative focusing on placing executives on key boards associated with the health care industry.

Harper has a master's degree in health care administration from Baylor University and received his undergraduate degree from The Citadel, in Charleston, South Carolina.   Harper and his wife, Terrye, live in Stockton and have two daughters.

Pacific's Board of Regents is entrusted with final responsibility for the quality and integrity of the education provided by the university. It selects the university president, approves the mission of the university and ensures provision of adequate resources to support that mission. In addition, the board protects the university from external pressures antithetical to academic freedom and to university autonomy or integrity.
