President & CEO, White Memorial Medical Center
As President & Chief Executive Officer of White Memorial Medical Center, a 353-bed not-for-profit teaching hospital in the densely-populated community of Boyle Heights, just east of downtown Los Angeles, Beth Zachary’s positive influence, keen business sense and community commitments have been a significant driving force behind the hospital’s growth into one of the most advanced medical centers in the greater Los Angeles region.
Under Beth’s leadership, White Memorial recently completed a 10-year campus rebuilding project. The new hospital not only provides state-of-the-art technology and services, it meets California’s rigorous new seismic safety standards.
Beth has guided the vision and strategic direction of the hospital and overseen successful efforts to put White Memorial at the forefront of clinical quality, service and leadership among healthcare organizations. White Memorial has been identified as one of the state’s top performers in organizational excellence and quality, earning multiple awards and recognitions for exceptional performance and dedication to continuous improvement.
Additionally, under Beth’s leadership, White Memorial has developed numerous community partnerships to meet critical community needs. These include a scholarship program with TELACU and Rio Hondo College that benefits youth and has helped ease the region’s nursing shortage.
Beth participates on the boards in a number of state and regional organizations that focus on strengthening health care services, including the Hospital Association of Southern California, the American Heart Association Board, and the Anthem Blue Cross Hospital Relations Committee.
She holds a master’s degree in management from Claremont Graduate School in Claremont, California. She resides in Pasadena with her husband Jim and their daughter Alexandra.
