Personnel Shifts at Providence

There’s been a shake-up at Providence Health System. Arnie Schaffer, who had been chief operating officer for the Southern California Region, was named CEO for the area, replacing Michael Madden, who was named vice president of advocacy and development for the entire Providence Health System. “Michael will bring his vast experience in national and state policy relationships, church relationships and philanthropic strategy to our system level,” said Greg Van Pelt, executive vice president of Providence Health System, in a written statement. Madden has been with Providence for 13 years. His office will be in Burbank. In his new position, Schaffer will oversee all of the Providence operations in Southern California, which includes Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center in Burbank, Providence Holy Cross Medical Center in Mission Hills, facilites in Torrance and San Pedro and several nursing facilities. All together, Schaffer will be in charge of 1,133 beds and 6,700 workers. Schaffer joined Providence as CEO of the San Fernando Valley Service Area in 2002 and was promoted last year to the regional post. The promotions take effect Oct. 1. Providence has 28 hospitals and 35 non-acute facilities in six Western states.
