Larry Anderson, JD, has been CEO of 397-bed Tri-City Medical Center in Oceanside, Calif., since January 2009, and in those three years, he has already helped the hospital reach several major achievements.

Larry Anderson is CEO of Tri-City Medical Center.When Mr. Anderson inherited his current position, Tri-City reported an $18 million loss on its balance sheet. By the end of the 2011 fiscal year, the hospital reported a $15.2 million profit.

Before joining Tri-City, Mr. Anderson worked at Integrated Healthcare Holdings, a hospital company that owns and operates four hospitals in Orange County, Calif., and seven-hospital chain Alta Healthcare System in Los Angeles. Mr. Anderson also spent most of his professional career as in-house counsel for the U.S. Postal Service.
