IRVINE – Victor S. Jordan has been named the health network executive and chief operating officer for Providence St. Joseph Health Southern California, the region’s second-largest health care provider.

Reporting to Erik G. Wexler, regional chief executive, Providence St. Joseph Health Southern California, Jordan will be responsible for day-to-day operations, including growth, quality, employee engagement, productivity and financial performance.

Jordan will work closely with the chief executives of the not-for-profit health system’s 14 Southern California hospitals (including Tarzana, pictured above) and its two large medical foundations to ensure delivery of high-quality, accessible and affordable care.

“Victor will contribute greatly to Providence St. Joseph Health. His collaborative, respectful and inspirational style is a good fit with our culture,” Wexler said. “Like all of us, he is driven to improve outcomes and advance strategic initiatives. Equally important is his personal commitment to the mission and values of the Sisters of Providence and the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange, which direct us to focus on the needs of our communities’ most vulnerable.”

“I’m excited to be returning to Southern California and I look forward to advancing the health care mission of Providence St. Joseph Health,” Jordan said.

With more than 20 years of experience in health systems, Jordan most recently was executive vice president and chief financial officer of the seven-hospital Detroit Medical Center. There he coordinated approximately $1 billion in capital development projects, including an advanced technology heart hospital, a pediatric specialty ambulatory center and a $175 million project to replace a patient tower for Children’s Hospital of Michigan.

While at DMC, he was the executive sponsor of a company-wide mentoring program for future financial operations leaders, which significantly increased internal promotions. He oversaw population health strategies for the health system, including those related to the owned Medicaid health plan and the Medicare Pioneer accountable care organization.

These strategies were all related to coordinating and improving care as well as meeting high-quality thresholds. Also, he worked with the senior leadership team at DMC on appropriate ER utilization through a CMS innovation grant. As a result, three holistic primary care clinics were opened adjacent to the hospitals’ emergency rooms.

Jordan’s other prior regional management experience includes the New England and Chicago markets for Tenet Healthcare.

He will be joined by his wife and two children when they relocate from Michigan. He assumes his new role on March 26.
