Providence St. Joseph Health consolidated 14 hospitals in SoCal under a new entity and with a new leadership team. Based in Los Angeles, the umbrella organization is named Providence St. Joseph Health Southern California, and will be led by chief executive Erik G. Wexler.
The regional network approach is expected to strengthen its footprint spanning three major counties, according to Wexler, who previously ran Providence Health’s SoCal network of six Los Angeles hospitals.
The newly-formed healthcare organization will include six hospitals in Los Angeles County, seven in Orange County and one in San Bernardino County. The group also has 26 urgent care centers, 60 physician clinics and a broad range of senior services, behavioral health initiatives and community programs.
The system is part of Renton, WA-based Providence St. Joseph Health, a Catholic nonprofit healthcare system formed by the merger of Providence Health & Services and St. Joseph Health.
