Milstien Appointed President and CEO of Simi Valley Hospital
May 11, 2012 (Roseville, CA) - Kim Milstien, 43 has been appointed president and CEO of Simi Valley Hospital (SVH), according to Bill Wing, senior vice president of Adventist Health and chairman of the board for the southern California facility. Milstien will assume her new role in July/August 2012.
"Kim's service to Adventist Health has been outstanding. Her strong leadership, commitment to our mission and familiarity with the Los Angeles area will benefit SVH," stated Wing. "Her strength is building new services through collaboration and relationships, which will allow SVH to meet more of the health needs in the community."
No stranger to Simi Valley, Milstien began her career with Adventist Health at that hospital in 1996. In the intervening 16 years, she has also served in Adventist Health's Central California region and most recently at Glendale Adventist Medical Center (GAMC) in Glendale, California.
Following progressively responsible roles in strategic planning, physician relations/sales and business development (including oversight for marketing and public relations), she was appointed to her current position as vice president of business development at GAMC in September 2009.
Expanding the hospital's outreach into the community, Milstien developed the hospital's first hospital-based outpatient clinic, focusing on spine and orthopedics; contributed to the significant growth in market share; and substantially increased medical staff membership and engagement. Additionally, Milstien has been very involved in the development of broader networks for GAMC. At GAMC, Milstien also has had operational responsibility for several ancillary/support service areas.
Milstien holds a BA in Psychology from the University of Western Ontario and an MBA from La Sierra University in Riverside, California. She is a board member of the Glendale YWCA and devotes time to the Salvation Army Alegria House and Kiwanis. Milstien recently received the "Outstanding Corporate Woman" from the California State Legislators Women in Business Award.
Milstien and her husband, Dave, are the proud parents of their three-year-old daughter, Callie. They will be relocating to Simi Valley in the near future.
