Our Featured Speaker, Erik Wexler, came West in 2016 to lead one of the Southland’s largest healthcare systems, after Providence Health & Services joined with St. Joseph Health to form Providence St. Joseph Health.
Erik is now Chief Executive of Providence St. Joseph Health, Southern California, to which he’s brought fresh ideas from a healthcare career spent largely on the East Coast with investor-owned facilities.
Providence SoCal has about 33,000 employees – called caregivers – and over 5,500 physicians on staff, providing comprehensive, quality and compassionate care from pre-natal to end of life, in the SoCal Region’s s 13 hospitals generating $7.5 billion in net revenue.
Additionally, the Region includes numerous outpatient centers and programs, three large physician foundations, and Providence High School.
In an era of constant change, Erik will share the progress they’ve made and some of the lessons learned in forging together a cohesive system from hospital organizations that once were independent.
ABL can really be life changing, thank you for making it possible. I can’t believe how much I learn from all of you. Mimi should hand out diplomas!
The draw for me is the ability to connect with people who are grappling with the challenges that we face in healthcare and an opportunity to bring your problems to a knowledgeable group of people and get good advice and counsel.
I’ve been a Member of ABL for over a decade. It’s a terrific organization for healthcare leaders who want to accelerate the process of creating valuable organizations.
I learned so much in my first experience with ABL! What Talent!
ABL allows me to get out from the day-to-day tasks, responsibilities and issues to focus on the BIG picture.
ABL is a wealth of information, knowledge, and camaraderie. You really get to trust the other Members, and you become more than business associates that meet once a month – you become friends.
ABL is an environment that always provides great (and current) information and makes me think. A welcoming group of very smart, committed and terrific people.
I think the Round Tables are outstanding! I find it very valuable to be part of a discussions with thought leaders in healthcare. The Round Tables are always very educational and have excellent topics.
