At the council’s annual business meeting on Tuesday, May 17, Dr. Kevin H. Mosser was elected as President of the New Birth of Freedom Council. As council president, Dr. Mosser serves as the top volunteer leader in the council and will give leadership to the effective operations of Scouting locally. He serves as chair at meetings of the council, its executive board and its executive committee and is an ex officio member of all committees of the council executive board.
In 2013, Dr. Mosser was named President of WellSpan Health and has been associated with WSH and its predecessor organizations for more than 30 years. He provides strategic oversight to all of WellSpan’s entities, including six hospitals, a home health agency, a more than 900 provider primary care based medical group, an extensive ambulatory enterprise and several other health-related activities. WellSpan’s revenue base is approximately $1.6B. His previous roles with WSH include that of chief operating officer, senior vice president and president of Gettysburg Hospital, and executive director of the WS Medical Group.
Dr. Mosser is board certified in family medicine. In addition to his role as Council President, Dr. Mosser serves on the Hospice & Community Care Board of Directors, Better York Board of Directors, Downtown, Inc. Advisory Board and was recently appointed to the Hospital & Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania Board of Directors. He is a past chair of the Pennsylvania Trauma Systems Foundation Board of Directors.
Dr. Mosser holds a bachelors’ degree in biochemistry from the University of Pennsylvania and a medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.
Prior to his election as Council President, Dr. Mosser was serving as the council’s Vice President for Fund Development, providing overall leadership to all of the council’s fundraising programs. But he has a much longer history in Scouting, starting out as a Cub Scout and (regrettably) his youth participation ended as Tenderfoot. Dr. Mosser has more than made up for lost time by also serving for several years as Scoutmaster for Troop 17 in York, where he guided more than 20 Scouts along the trail to Eagle Scout.
Kevin has two adult sons who were both Scouts as youth. Jonathan became an Eagle Scout in 2002, and Ryan achieved the Star Rank.
