County Hires New ARMC Director

The Board of Supervisors today unanimously selected an experienced executive with more than 30 years in the health care industry as the new director of Arrowhead Regional Medical Center.
William L. Gilbert, who has held chief executive officer positions for several large health care systems across the United States, will oversee Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton beginning July 6, 2015.
“Mr. Gilbert is the right person to serve as Director having years of experience in the health care industry,” said Board Chairman James Ramos. “I believe he will bring valuable contributions to the ARMC community.”
Most recently, Gilbert worked with Deaconess Hospital in Spokane, Washington and Foundation Surgical Affiliates in San Antonio, Texas.
Gilbert has a bachelor’s degree in healthcare administration from the University of La Verne and a Master of Business Administration from Pepperdine University. He has also been a board member for the Washington State Hospital Association, the California Hospital Association and several other healthcare associations throughout his career.
In his position as director, Gilbert will supervise 3,691 employees and manage a budget of $451 million at the state-of-the-art acute care hospital. His employment contract calls for him to earn a salary of $299,500. Gilbert succeeds William Foley who left ARMC in May for another healthcare position in the Midwest.
Arrowhead Regional Medical Center is a Level II trauma center which also operates a regional burn center, a primary stroke center, a free-standing behavioral center, four primary care centers including three family health centers and more than 40 outpatient specialty care services.
