TriHealth has announced that Steve Gracey, JD has been appointed as the new TriHealth General Counsel, effective immediately. He has served as Interim TriHealth General Counsel since July 2016.

"I am excited to continue my work with TriHealth’s leadership team and care providers to help better serve our patients and community as TriHealth moves from good to great,” said Gracey. “In the transforming landscape of healthcare policy and reform, it is imperative that the role of General Counsel acts as both a legal advisor and business partner. I look forward to fulfilling both these roles for TriHealth.”

Gracey’s appointment follows a national search in which a number of talented candidates were interviewed and considered. Steve emerged as the strongest, most broadly supported candidate and the clear choice following an interview process involving physicians, leaders, team members and trustees.

“In addition to his outstanding performance as Interim General Counsel, Steve’s strong commitment to TriHealth’s mission, vision and values, and his impressive track record as Director of Risk Management, set him apart as the best candidate to fill this vital system role,” said Mark C. Clement, TriHealth President and CEO. “Steve’s appointment affirms TriHealth’s commitment to grow and develop talent, and promote from within, whenever possible.”

As General Counsel, Gracey will directly manage all in-house and outside legal services as well as oversee Risk Management. He will also be responsible for organizing a new TriHealth function related to Government Relations and Advocacy.

A graduate of Columbia University and UC College of Law, Gracey has served as Director of Risk Management since joining TriHealth in 2011. In this role, he was instrumental in reducing the outstanding liability by millions of dollars through education, early resolution support and improved claim administration techniques. Under Gracey’s leadership, his team created a self-insured liability program for employed physicians and other providers, resulting in more than $4 million in annual savings.
