1 of California's longest-serving hospital CEOs to retire

Craig Leach will retire as CEO of Torrance (Calif.) Memorial Medical Center on Oct. 31 after 17 years at the helm.

Mr. Leach joined the hospital in 1984 as director of finance, according to a Sept. 11 news release shared with Becker's. He served as senior vice president of finance, then chief operating officer, before assuming the top job in 2006.

He is one of the longest-serving hospital executives in California, Daily Breeze reported Oct. 23. 

A succession plan is already in place; Keith Hobbs has been serving as the hospital's president since February and will become its CEO Nov. 1. 

The 443-bed nonprofit hospital is under the umbrella of Cedars-Sinai Health System, based in Los Angeles.
