UCLA Medical Centers in Santa Monica and Westwood have transitioned to new Board of Advisors leadership. Kathy Volz, a frequent supporter of the UCLA Health - Santa Monica Medical Center staff, concluded her 2018-2020 term as chair of the UCLA Health - Santa Monica Medical Center Board of Advisors in summer 2020. While serving as chair, she approved timely initiatives, such as supporting employee childcare during COVID-19, and has remained active with the annual awards ceremony. The board welcomed Kenneth T. Friedman as the new chair.
Todd M. Katz’s two-year term as chair of the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center Board of Advisors concluded in fall 2020. As a dedicated member of the Reagan Board and other hospital boards, he undertook several important initiatives, including increasing board membership and diversity. A UCLA alumnus, Katz has supported high-priority initiatives, such as UCLA Health Operation Mend and the COVID-19 Patient Care and Healthcare Provider Protection Fund. During his tenure, he oversaw the creation of a community-engagement committee to enhance community relations and fundraising, and a health-information-technology (HIT) committee to stay abreast of the hospital system’s HIT initiatives, both of which are valuable UCLA Health assets. The board welcomed Beth C. Friedman as the new chair.
In addition, the Reagan Board of Advisors appointed six new board members: Troy Carter (Q&A music and technology company), Derek Collison (Synadia Communications, Inc.), Susanne Daniels (YouTube), Kwanza Jones (Kwanza Jones & José E. Feliciano SUPERCHARGED Initiative), Janice Min (media executive) and Margarita “Maggie” Paláu-Hernández, Esq. (Hernández Ventures). Highly regarded in their respective fields, the new members will bring new perspectives and diverse areas of expertise to support UCLA Health’s mission to elevate medical and patient care.
