He will oversee the operations of the state's largest nonprofit health plan which provides comprehensive health care services to approximately 275,000 members through 15 medical facilities and a network of affiliated hospitals and physicians in a 28-county service area. With a strong background in sales and marketing, he will lead Kaiser Permanente's growth in metro-Atlanta and expansion into other markets in Georgia.
Andruszkiewicz joined Kaiser Permanente in 2005 as vice president of National Accounts and served in a number of executive capacities at the organization's national offices in California where he worked with Kaiser Permanente regions across the country.
"Peter has an intimate knowledge of Kaiser Permanente operations and an extensive background with other health care organizations," said Bernard J. Tyson, executive vice-president for Health Plan and Hospital Operations, in announcing the appointment. "With more than 25 years as a senior executive in the health care industry, his breadth of experience makes him an outstanding choice to continue in his role as regional president."
Before joining Kaiser Permanente, he spent 18 years with CIGNA HealthCare, most recently as senior vice president, Middle Market Segment. In addition, he served for four years as chief marketing officer at Blue Cross / Blue Shield of the National Capitol Area, Washington, D.C.
