Pat has extensive leadership experience in acute care hospital operations, physician partnerships, clinical service lines, joint venture management, and the continuum of care, including skilled nursing, home health, acute rehabilitation, and behavioral health.
Pat most recently served as chief executive officer of Sutter Health’s Eden Medical Center, a 130-bed neuro-interventional and level 2 trauma center in Castro Valley, CA. Before that, Pat served as chief operating officer and interim CEO for O’Connor Hospital in San Jose, CA, guiding the hospital through Verity Health System’s Chapter 11 bankruptcy and helping to successfully transition ownership to the County of Santa Clara.
Previously, Pat held senior positions for Sutter Health’s Mills‐Peninsula Medical Center in Burlingame, CA, providing strategic and operational leadership for ambulatory services and service lines, including oncology, joint replacement, behavioral health (psych emergency, inpatient adolescent & adult, and intensive outpatient programs), and cardio-vascular, including implementing a TAVR program. She also held senior leadership positions at Princeton Healthcare System in New Jersey and Main Line Health System in Pennsylvania. Pat managed acute care hospital functions and the post-acute continuum for both organizations, including home care, hospice, skilled nursing, subacute, acute rehabilitation, adult day care, and long-term care.
Early in Pat’s career, she worked for various national for-profit post-acute companies and had multi-state oversight responsibilities. This experience proved to be instrumental in Pat’s ability to manage length of stay, capitated care, and 30-day readmission rates in acute care hospital work.
Pat holds a Bachelor of Social Work from Juniata College in Pennsylvania and a Master of Health Administration from The Pennsylvania State University.
