Martin Cordova, Regional Director of Information Technology at Centinela
Hospital Medical Center has been named a finalist in the 2015 Los Angeles
Business Journal's CIO Awards. The CIO Award honors Chief Information
Officers, or more broadly, those in the top information technology positions
within their organizations. These important individuals and teams play
vital roles in making Los Angeles businesses, institutions and nonprofit
groups successful. Together with their CEOs, their decisions impact all
aspects of the business including their company's growth, profitability,
functionality and competitiveness in the marketplace. Linda Bradley, CEO
of Centinela Hospital stated, "This is a great honor for Martin and
everyone in the IT Department at Centinela Hospital. It's a testament
to all of the hard work that he has put into the facility to make it a
world class medical center."
Criteria by which Martin was rated included: How does he demonstrate a
strong leadership focus and the cultivation of that skill through his/her
team? How effective is he is at establishing strong ties with the company's
business? And how does he promote creative thinking within the organization?
Martin's commitment to Centinela Hospital is unparalleled. He takes
a hands-on leadership approach and conveys to his staff firsthand the
type of experience that hospital patients, doctors, staff and visitors
should expect from the IT Department. In this manner, he is able to understand
and anticipate the needs of the departments that he serves and to supply
them with the tools and training needed to provide superior patient care.
Martin has been instrumental in assisting Centinela to achieve numerous
quality distinctions. Under his leadership, several programs have been
instituted throughout the facility to promote effective communication
with our patients, physicians, staff and community, Centinela is able
to provide high quality healthcare that is accessible and affordable to
our community members.
Martin will be honored along with the other finalists at an awards dinner
on Wednesday, June 3, 2015 at the LA Hotel Downtown. He will be cheered
on by a table of his co-workers at the event. Everyone at Centinela Hospital
wish to congratulate him on this milestone accomplishment and to wish
him good luck on Wednesday evening.
