Dean's Executive Leadership Series Hosts Richard Cordova

Register on the Graziadio School of Business and Management website.

Richard Cordova (MBA '84), president and CEO of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, will head a panel as part of the Dean’s Executive Leadership Series on Thursday, Jan. 16, at 5:30 p.m. at Children's Hospital Los Angeles, in Conference Rooms A & B of the John Stauffer Conference Center. 

Moderated by Graziadio School of Business and Management dean Linda Linvingstone, the panel will also include healthcare executives Arthur Southam, executive vice president of Health Plan Operations at Kaiser Permanente, and David Feinberg, chief executive officer and Hospital System associate vice chancellor at the UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica.

As president and chief executive officer of Children's Hospital Los Angeles, Cordova brings over 35 years of diverse healthcare experience to Southern California's oldest children's hospital. Cordova assumed his current role in 2006, a year after he became president and chief operating officer. At CHLA, he also serves as a member of the hospital Board of Trustees.

Prior to his arrival at Children's Hospital Los Angeles, Cordova worked for Kaiser Foundation Health Plan and Hospitals. With revenues in excess of $20 billion, the nonprofit integrated health care system included 30 hospitals in eight states, a health plan with more than 8 million members and eight physician groups.

Cordova received his master's degree from the Graziadio School of Business and Management at Pepperdine University in 1984.

An admission fee of $20 will be donated in full by the Graziadio School towards the purchase of Toys "R" Us and iTunes gift cards for the children of the hospital. Additional donations are welcome and can be made through the registration form. Every dollar will go towards the purchase of gift cards.
