Methodist Hospital President and CEO Dan Ausman was named Hospital CEO of the Year by the Los Angeles Business Journal recently during a special ceremony in downtown Los Angeles. Ausman received the honor out of the more than 100 hospital administrators who work in the greater Los Angeles area.
“Dan has demonstrated excellent leadership since coming to Methodist Hospital in 2011,” said Bill Lewis, chairman of the board for the hospital. “Dan has made substantial improvements in our financial performance as well as in all measures of safety, efficiency and quality of care as demonstrated by Methodist having been twice named as a five-star hospital by Medicare.”
Under Ausman’s leadership, Methodist Hospital was recognized by Medicare as being in the top 2% of all hospitals in the nation for overall hospital quality, as well as only one of six recognized in California and the only hospital in L.A. County to receive this five-star honor. In addition, the hospital has received high recognition from other organizations including the Joint Commission and has been named a SafeCare Top 100 Hospital for three consecutive years, which recognizes organizations for providing safe, high quality care to patients.
“Please join me in congratulating Dan for this outstanding and well deserved recognition and thank him for his leadership and all that he has accomplished at Methodist Hospital,” Lewis said.
