UC Irvine Medical Center CEO to retire
Los Angeles Business Journal

Terry Belmont, chief executive of University of California Irvine Medical Center, is retiring in June after six years at the helm. Belmont, who also is retiring as associate vice chancellor for medical center affairs, said his last day will be June 30, which will allow time for a smooth transition. Belmont was named CEO in March 2009 when the hospital was transitioning to a new state-of-the-art facility in Orange. The medical center at the time was facing the threat of loss of federal funding over poor record-keeping, inadequate staffing, broken equipment and other troubles, according to the Orange County Register.
