Methodist Hospital is pleased to announce the appointment of Steven A. Sisto as senior vice president/chief operating officer (COO).
“We are very fortunate to have such a talented executive join our team,” President and CEO Dan Ausman said. “Steve is an engaging leader, and his collaborative style fosters a ‘can do’ problem-solving attitude that can quickly cut across all hospital departments to forge a working alliance with leaders, staff and physicians to improve service and satisfaction.”
Sisto has 20+ years of operational experience as a healthcare executive, most recently as the VP of operations for a large six-hospital system in Arizona, where he was responsible for coordinating operational initiatives, capital budgeting, facility construction, regional strategies for consolidated engineering, EVS, security and biomed across the system.
“Steve is skilled in all areas of operational management, ranging from productivity to lean to expense management, managing multi-disciplinary service line committees to improve service, and holding staff accountable to achieving our goals,” Ausman said.
Sisto, who assumed his new duties January 3, has also served as a CEO for a 132-bed acute-care facility and as a hospital COO at four other California acute facilities ranging in size from 150 beds to a 348-bed tertiary-care trauma hospital.
He received his bachelor of science in healthcare administration from the University of La Verne and is a member of the American College of Healthcare Executives. Married with six children, Sisto said he is happy to be back in California and closer to family.
