Comprised of Keck Hospital of USC and USC Norris Cancer Hospital, the medical center, under Sargeant’s leadership, is consistently ranked among the nation’s best hospitals ad is routinely honored with multiple patient safety awards. Sargeant, who has more than 20 years of leadership experience under his belt, provides executive leadership for the medical center while maintaining strong relationships with department chairs, faculty, staff, and leadership. 

Sargeant is committed to personally engaging with frontline caregivers and maintains a constant presence at the medical center, creating opportunities to enhance patient care and ensure that physicians and staff have the support they need to excel in their roles. 

The medical center, which has the highest acute care patient volume in the entire country, is the largest transfer center in the region. Additionally, the research-based medical center offers hundreds of groundbreaking clinical trials, as well as surgical innovations that provide patients with the most leading-edge therapies available.

Sargeant also champions cancer research, such as USC Norris’ recently launched Breast Cancer Survivorship Program, which is developing a novel blood test to detect the presence of micro-metastatic residual breast cancer at the end of therapy and develop a recurrence risk classifier for survivors of breast cancer.
