David A. Gee (1928-2006) was a prominent health administrator, serving both the former Jewish Hospital and the Washington University School of Medicine.  He is best known for his 27-year tenure as president of the Jewish Hospital of Saint Louis.  Gee’s employment at the hospital began with an administrative residency in 1950.  A year later, he attained a master’s degree in health administration from Washington University School of Medicine.  Gee held various administrative positions at Jewish Hospital from 1951 until 1964, when he became executive director of the hospital.  His presidency lasted from 1968 until 1995.  Throughout his lengthy tenure at Jewish Hospital, Gee implemented a highly visible leadership approach that promoted open communication and a continued commitment to patient-centered care.

Gee also taught as a Professor of Health Administration at Washington University School of Medicine for 25 years.  He penned 65 books and articles, including A History of the Jewish Hospital of St. Louis, published in 1981, and Working Wonders: A History of the Jewish Hospital of St. Louis, 1891-1992, published in 1993.  Gee died on December 5, 2006.  His legacy is honored with an administrative fellowship in his name at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, which is awarded to qualified candidates interested in entering the field of health administration.
