In a significant acknowledgment of leadership and influence in the healthcare industry, Trevor Wright, FACHE, has been recognized on the Becker's Hospital Review 60 Health System CEO Influencers in 2023 list. These influential leaders are chosen for their work in steering healthcare organizations toward excellence and innovation and their impact on the industry as a whole.

Trevor Wright, CEO of Loma Linda University Health Hospitals and Executive Vice President for Hospital Affairs, has been a driving force behind transformative healthcare initiatives. This recognition highlights Wright's contributions and visionary leadership in the healthcare sector.

Assuming the CEO post in 2021, Wright successfully met the twin challenges of managing the organization's response to the COVID-19 pandemic and taking over the operational issues involved with opening the new one million-square-foot seismically-compliant hospital tower. Becker's also recognized Wright's commitment to advocate for the long-term financial health of California's safety-net hospitals and his efforts to urge state and federal leaders to commit resources to healthcare. He has also implemented several people-focused initiatives, including the "Walk a Mile" shadowing program and CEO leader lunchtime strategy sessions.

"I am deeply honored to be included on this list of hospital leaders," Wright said. "This accolade is a testament to the incredible work and dedication of our entire team at LLUH. It underscores our shared commitment to improving healthcare and enhancing the lives of the communities we serve."
