Kevin Roberts

Adventist Health Glendale recently announced that current President and CEO Kevin Roberts will be leaving the organization, effective Nov. 3, to pursue other opportunities.
In a memo to employees, physicians, volunteers and board members, Beth Zachary, AHGL Governing Board Chair, wrote, “I want to thank Kevin for his leadership and acknowledge the good work he and his team have accomplished to expand access and improve care for the Glendale community.”
As the board chair, president and CEO of the Adventist Health Southern California Region, Zachary will serve as the interim CEO while the search for a permanent leader is underway. To ensure a smooth transition, Zachary has appointed Terri Day, who has been advising AHGL’s executive team for the past several months, to oversee day-to-day operations. Terri is a well-respected and seasoned health care administrator with an exceptional background in hospital operations.
“Adventist Health Glendale is a terrific hospital with an inspired mission, amazing people and a rich legacy of healing,” Roberts said. “I know that this hospital will continue to thrive and succeed and that its best years are still ahead.”

This year’s medical mission will take place between Sept. 17 and 22, offering free medical services, including surgeries, to residents of Noyemberyan and the surrounding 30 villages.

Adventist Health Glendale Boosts New Name, Logo

After serving the community for more than 112 years and growing to more than 2,500 employees, Glendale Adventist Medical Center will soon be known as Adventist Health Glendale. Although Glendale Adventist Medical Center has always been a part of a 20-hospital system known as Adventist Health, this year marks the beginning of a new era for the hospital.
“We are excited to announce the next chapter in the Adventist Health story,” said Kevin Roberts, president and CEO of GAMC. “In the coming weeks and months, we will transition from Glendale Adventist Medical Center to a new name: Adventist Health Glendale, which will allow us to embrace a stronger collective identity as a system. It is important to know that our faith-driven mission and commitment to world class quality and service remains as vibrant as ever.”
In addition to the name change, Adventist Health has launched a new mission, vision, values and logo. “Together Inspired” illustrates the collective vision of the system’s 20 hospitals in communities across California, Oregon, Washington and Hawaii. As a system, Adventist Health is moving from being a hospital company to a health organization serving and transforming the health experience and outcomes of all its communities.
