Valley Medical CEO sees trend in healthcare consolidations
Silicon Valley Business Journal

Earlier this year, Paul Lorenz — the chief executive officer for Santa Clara Valley Medical Center — saw his domain triple as he added two other hospitals and one health center to the county’s public health system. 

“The ability for the county to step in and maintain the existing services at the facilities has fared very well,” Lorenz said. “In fact, in some services we continue to see a growth in demand. In other areas, we are looking to further partner with community physicians and medical groups to further improve the accessibility to care. I cannot be more pleased with the way the transition has gone. That’s not to say we don’t have challenges, but those are expected given the fact these are large facilities and are complex service organizations.”
