ROSEVILLE, CA – Kerry Heinrich, JD, will serve as the next CEO of Adventist Health, Board Chair John Freedman announced this week.
Heinrich brings a deep understanding of Adventist Health’s mission and culture to his new role, having led the Seventh-day Adventist Loma Linda University Medical Center, Children's Hospital, and Behavioral Medicine Center as CEO for more than seven years and having served as the organization’s legal counsel for more than 20 years. During his tenure as CEO, he helped guide the construction of the new 16-story hospital and nine-story Children’s Hospital tower that opened in August. He was also named one of Becker’s Hospital Review’s “135 Nonprofit Hospital and Health System CEOs to Know” in 2017.
Heinrich will replace Scott Reiner, who announced his resignation in July to establish a family foundation that is focused on global health and well-being. The leadership transition is expected to be completed by the new year.
