Adventist Health + Rideout president to retire after 38-year healthcare career


Rick Rawson, president of Adventist Health and Rideout, will retire Oct. 31 after 38 years in healthcare, he said July 22.

"It has been a tremendous honor to serve our team and community these past three years," he said in a news release. "I've been so impressed with this community's commitment to making a difference and caring for others."

He also was CEO of Loma Linda University Medical Center-Murrieta (Calif.) and senior vice president for strategic planning for Loma Linda (Calif.) University Health.
