A former chief administrative officer at Loma Linda University Medical Center has been named the permanent CEO of Riverside County’s hospital. Zareh Sarrafian, 50, will take over at Riverside County Regional Medical Center on Monday. He replaces interim CEO Lowell Johnson, a specialist brought in to help stabilize the Moreno Valley facility’s finances. “We are excited to have Zareh on board as we shift from a center largely for indigent patients to one that serves the entire community,” County Executive Officer Jay Orr said in a news release.
