In this capacity, he was responsible for an integrated delivery system comprised of five acute-care hospitals, a 120-bed behavioral health center, a critical care ground transportation company and a physician management company. During his tenure, all hospitals in the Temple health system received Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) scores of 95 or better, which placed it in the top tier of health systems in the country.

During his tenure, the board established the agency of state government charged with regulating the newly created gaming industry in Pennsylvania. He was involved with issuing the regulations necessary to implement the Pennsylvania Race Horse Development and Gaming Act, which permitted slot machines at racetracks converting them into racinos, and worked with other board members to issue six permanent racino licenses and five permanent casino licenses in December 2006.
Chip also served on the Medicaid Commission created by Congress and established by the Honorable Michael O.
