Quakertown Native Dennis Pfleiger Named President of St. Luke’s Quakertown Campus
Dennis Pfleiger of Quakertown has been promoted to President of St. Luke’s University Health Network’s Quakertown Campus.
Pfleiger previously served as the Quakertown Campus’s chief operating officer. In his new role, he will oversee the campus and help plan the development of a nearby replacement hospital.
“Dennis’s diverse experience makes him the ideal person to manage the campus’s day-to-day operations while advancing St. Luke’s strategic vision for Bucks County,” said Edward Nawrocki. “His deep roots in and connection to the region will serve both St. Luke’s and the community well.”
Pfleiger is replacing Nawrocki as the Quakertown Campus’s president. Nawrocki will continue to serve as president of St. Luke’s University Health Network’s Anderson Campus in Bethlehem Township.
“I consider it a high honor to serve in a leadership position for St. Luke’s and an incredible privilege to lead my hometown hospital, especially during this period of transition,” Pfleiger said. “It’s my job to ensure that the good people of Quakertown and Bucks County receive the best-possible care and service today and in the future.”
Before returning to St. Luke’s in February, Pfleiger served as Vice President for Healthcare Services at Einstein Medical Center Montgomery in East Norriton Township, where he was an integral part of the startup and growth of Einstein’s new Montgomery County campus.
Pfleiger also served as Vice President of Operations and Business Development at Sacred Heart Hospital in Allentown. Early in his career, he worked as a staff respiratory therapist at the former Quakertown Hospital and at St. Luke’s University Hospital in Bethlehem.
Pfleiger is a graduate of Quakertown Community High School and has called Quakertown home even while working in other communities. He earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Respiratory Care from St. Joseph’s College in Standish, Maine, and a Master of Business Administration from Bellevue University in Bellevue, Nebraska.
