Huntington Health recently has announced that Lori J. Morgan, MD, MBA, president and CEO, has been elected to the American Hospital Association’s (AHA) Board of Trustees for a three-year term beginning Jan. 1, 2023. The board is the highest policymaking body of the AHA and has ultimate authority for the governance and management of its directions and finances. Dr. Morgan will be the chair of AHA Regional Policy Board 9.
“I am honored that the AHA has entrusted me with this significant position. The AHA’s commitment to ensuring equitable care and health improvement for all is directly in line with Huntington’s mission to provide excellent, compassionate health care inside and outside of our walls. In this role, I hope to further the accessibility, quality, and affordability of care for all patients and support wellness initiatives for dedicated caregivers both at home and across the nation,” said Dr. Morgan.
Most recently, Dr. Morgan’s leadership around the recent affiliation with Cedars-Sinai has further strengthened Huntington’s ability to provide the community with accessible, coordinated, high-quality care, close to home. The affiliation enables many different types of collaborations between Cedars-Sinai and Huntington on clinical services, research, clinical trials, and education.
Dr. Morgan has also had a major focus on setting physician strategy and expanding clinical programs and led a major construction project for new operating rooms, cardiac catheterization labs and earthquake retrofitting.
Dr. Morgan received her doctorate in medicine from the University of Washington School of Medicine and her MBA from Pacific Lutheran University. She has also served on the board for the Hospital Association of Southern California and the California Hospital Association.
