CEO, UCLA Hospital System
Spisso has been in her role since 2016. A registered nurse, she worked in critical-care settings at UPMC and UC Davis Medical Center. In 2019, she had a focus on innovation, with a goal of advancing biomedical science and improving patient well-being. In May, UCLA united with five other Los Angeles-area health systems to launch the Better Together Health campaign, an effort to get patients to start accessing care when they need it. The goal is to avoid what executives of those organizations say could lead to another public health crisis.
