Meet Erik Wexler, CEO of Providence – St. Joseph’s Health, SoCal

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.
