They have demonstrated considerable skill and promise despite times of uncertainty and unprecedented change in the industry. As a result, the Becker's Hospital Review editorial team finds these CEOs as women to watch now and in years to come.

In her current position, Linda Bradley provides day-to-day operational leadership for the hospital; interfaces with community stakeholders and is an integral part of Prime Healthcare Services senior management team. She states, "Prime Healthcare Services has provided me with

an amazing opportunity to continue the legacy of Centinela Hospital Medical Center, which has been providing hospital services to surrounding communities since 1924. I am honored to be part of the Centinela team. The dedication and commitment of the staff and physicians in providing our patients the highest quality of care is truly humbling. I look forward to continuing to build upon the success of the hospital and to provide an even greater commitment to the communities that we serve."

In addition, she is also spearheading the hospital's compliance with SB1953 seismic retrofit project which will also include the expansion of the emergency department to 60 beds and the renovation of patient care and public areas.
