September 29, 2011 (Roseville, CA) – Kevin Roberts, 52, has been appointed president and CEO of Glendale Adventist Medical Center (GAMC), according to Robert G. Carmen, president and CEO of Adventist Health and chairman of the board for the Southern California facility. Roberts will assume his new role December 5, 2011.

“Kevin’s service to Adventist Health over the years has been exemplary. His distinct blend of clinical and administrative leadership coupled with long-standing commitment to our mission will serve GAMC and its community well,” stated Carmen.

For six years CMC was voted by its employees as a "Best Place to Work" in Hawaii.

Robert’s prior career experience includes COO and chief nursing officer at West Valley Medical Center, Caldwell, Idaho and vice president of Patient Services for Monument Valley Hospital in Monument Valley, Utah.

Roberts holds an AS in Nursing from Pacific Union College, a BS in Nursing from California State University of Sacramento and a Master’s in Public Administration/Health Services Administration from the University of San Francisco.
