On September 1, 2010, I assumed the role as Chief Executive Officer of Contra Costa Regional Medical Center and Health Centers. This integration of the medical center and ambulatory care system provides the opportunity for improved integration and redesign across the continuum of care and service in our delivery system.
To further our ability to improve operations across our system, I have been engaged in a search for a Chief Operations Officer of Contra Costa Regional Medical Center and Health Centers and am pleased to announce the appointment of Michael Anaya as the Chief Operations Officer of Contra Costa Regional Medical Center and Health Centers.
A 30-year veteran of health care management, Mr. Anaya has directed healthcare operations worldwide and held senior leadership roles in for-profit and not-for-profit hospitals where he has improved quality and safety, operating performance, as well as patient, physician, and employee satisfaction. Most recently, Michael served as the Chief Operating Officer/Vice President, Healthcare Operations for Mystikal Solutions, an information technology services company based in San Antonio, Texas. Previously, he served as Chief Executive Officer of Colorado Plains Medical Center, a diversified rural health system; CEO of the 297-bed dual campus Doctors Hospital of Laredo; and COO of 203-bed SouthPointe Hospital, a St. Louis specialty hospital. A 22 year military veteran serving in the Medical Service Corps, Mr. Anaya held management positions at Naval Hospitals in the U.S., Japan, Italy, and Middle East as well as U.S. Naval Ship Mercy, Bureau of Naval Personnel, and TRICARE Management Activity.
Active on national, state, and community levels, Mr. Anaya served as President & Chairman of the National Forum for Latino Healthcare Executives, Commissioner on Colorado’s Minority Health Advisory Commission, and Trustee of the Colorado Hospital Association. He has been a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives since 1989.
I’m excited to bring someone with Michael’s tremendous experience to our health system. Most important, he is committed to our mission and will provide leadership to continue our path toward a model for the new American system of health care.
As Michael transitions to his new role this coming week, please join me in welcoming him to our health system.
