Loma Linda University Health’s Board of Trustees this week voted to promote Angela Lalas, MBA, CPA, the organization’s chief financial officer, to also include the title of executive vice president of finance. Lalas has served as senior vice president for finance since 2015 and was appointed CFO in 2018.
“Angela continues to demonstrate world-class expertise as a finance professional, and we are grateful to have her in this role as Loma Linda University Health grows to serve our communities in increasingly broader ways over the next few years,” said Richard H. Hart, MD, DrPH, president of Loma Linda University Health.
Lalas joined Loma Linda University Health in 2006 as manager of internal audit after working as a senior tax consultant for Deloitte. She has focused on financial analysis, strategic planning, budgeting, and data analysis in her roles since, including director of internal audit, CFO of LLUH Shared Services, director of the Loma Linda University Foundation, and vice president for finance for LLUH.
She was recognized for two years as a “Rising Star in Healthcare” and one among the “CFOs to Know in Healthcare” by Becker’s Hospital Review, and one of the 15 “Up and Comer Award” recipients by Modern Healthcare in 2017 — all leading publications highlighting business, legal news and analysis for the hospital industry.
Lalas is a CPA and holds an MBA in strategy and leadership from the Drucker School of Management at Claremont Graduate University.
