Dan Vukmer came to USF Health from Ohio State University where he was chief executive officer overseeing all aspects of a 60,000-member health plan covering faculty, staff and dependents of the university. With more than 20 years in the health care field as an attorney and managed care executive, he has ample experience meeting the challenges of a dynamic health care system and capitalizing on opportunities for growth and additional sources of revenue.
At USF Health, he defines and connects with existing and emerging clinical partners to develop value in the clinical enterprise and to help grow USF Health in both scale and scope. He is also collaborating with others on the leadership team to build clinically integrated networks (CINs) needed to transition from a fee-for-service to a value-based model of care -- one that can augment USF Health’s research and education missions while cost-effectively delivering health and medical services across the Tampa Bay region.
Before OSU, Dan served as senior vice president of business development and chief legal officer at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC). He assisted in developing one of the largest provider-owned health plans in the United States, which covered more than two million lives and produced more than $4 billion in yearly revenue to UPMC. Prior to UPMC, he was a merger and acquisition attorney at several large international and regional firms with a primary emphasis on health care transactions.
Dan received his Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry and computer science from Juniata College, and graduated with a Juris Doctor degree cum laude from Widener University School of Law, Delaware.
