Alvarado Administrator

Robin Gomez, Alvarado Hospital administrator, just won the coveted "Women Who Mean Business" Award, which is one of the longest-running events for women business leaders in San Diego and the country. Hosted by the San Diego Business Journal since 1993, the event recognizes women leaders in the community who have a proven record of success, not only in their careers, but also in philanthropic endeavors, mentorships and their personal lives.

An expert in transitioning hospitals, Gomez was recognized for helping convert Alvarado Hospital from a stand-alone facility to part of the nationally recognized 29-hospital Prime Healthcare Services system. Through her leadership, Alvarado Hospital is ranked among the "Top 5% in the Nation for Clinical Care" as a Distinguished Hospital, and among "America's 100 Best Hospitals" for Orthopedic Surgery™, Spine Surgery™ and Critical Care™ by Healthgrades in 2014.

"Through Robin's guidance, we are seeing a resurgence of community members choosing Alvarado Hospital for their care and physicians choosing to practice there," said Luis Leon, Prime Healthcare president of operations. "She has made a notable difference in three years."

Gomez also was recognized for her vision to expand the hospital to meet important community needs, such as a new geriatric-psychiatric unit opening at the end of this year, and the hospital's new spine and joint replacement program opening in February. In addition, under Gomez's purview, the hospital will open a brand-new emergency department in early 2016, expanding the amount of emergency beds available for residents along the I-8 corridor.
