HAWAIIAN GARDENS – Veteran hospital administrator Clifford B. Shiepe, who has played a key management role with some of the largest and most respected hospitals in the West, has been named Chief Executive Officer of Tri-City Regional Medical Center, a non-profit hospital serving Los Angeles and Orange Counties.
He was unanimously appointed CEO by the hospital’s Board of Directors. The Board cited his extensive experience at some of the most noted hospitals in the country, including Stanford University Hospital, USC University Hospital and Scripps Clinics, as criteria for his selection.
“Cliff is a proven leader in hospital administration and has already served very effectively as Tri-City Regional Medical Center’s Senior Vice President for about a year,” said Brian Walton, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Tri-City Regional Medical Center. “Given his reputation and decades of seasoned experience in the field, we are fortunate to have someone of Cliff’s caliber lead us into the future. In just a short period, he has already made an impact on staff, our physicians and in the community.”
Shiepe began his career at the prestigious Massachusetts General Hospital as an Assistant Administrator. He remained for 10 years before moving to Southern California to become the Senior Vice President of the Lutheran Hospital Society, a multi-hospital group of nine facilities.
Shiepe most recently served as Senior Vice President of Tri-City Regional Medical Center and, prior to that, as Chairman of the Board of Directors of Tri-City Regional Medical Center, after serving for more than 5 years as chief operating officer and interim CEO of Victor Valley Community Hospital. Prior to that position, Shiepe served as CEO of a major health care consulting company that provided services to many large health care companies, among other leadership endeavors.
“Tri-City Regional Medical Center is a perfect fit for my experience and I look forward to raising the bar on all levels of clinical care, personal service and physician relations,” he said. “This facility has a rich history of serving the community with high quality patient care as well as treating many patients from all over the country thanks to our physicians’ exceptional expertise in orthopedics, spine surgery and weight loss surgery.”
