Greetings to friends of Adventist Health White Memorial Charitable Foundation

Juan De La CruzI am honored and delighted to join Adventist Health White Memorial (AHWM) as the new President of the Charitable Foundation. This role is very meaningful for me, as I was born in Boyle Heights, my youngest son was delivered at White Memorial, and as a professional I have worked tirelessly to make sure our community receives the proper support to enhance their quality of life. As you can imagine, the hospital occupies a special place in my life. As a father I was impressed with the quality of care my children received here and, now in my new role, I continue to be impressed by the excellence and quality that is reflected here at White Memorial.

The AHWM Charitable Foundation is proud to present the video miniseries Together Inspired. celebrating the people, programs, donors and community that make White Memorial so very special. We hope you will use these videos with your friends, family and colleagues to showcase AHWM and share your own story.

This first episode of Together Inspired. features the story of White Memorial winning the Malcolm Baldrige Award, the nation’s highest presidential honor for performance excellence. It was this very commitment to excellence that allowed us to successfully pivot during the pandemic.

Thank you for all you do on behalf of White Memorial.

In gratitude,
Juan De La Cruz
