Pacifica Hospital of the Valley
As a healthcare leader and entrepreneur, Precious Mayes’ journey has been filled with opportunities and experiences in a variety of industries. She has always explored the impossible with the philosophy that “anything is possible.”
Pacifica Hospital of the Valley is a safety net hospital. It faces challenges with timely funding by the state. The hospital is in north San Fernando Valley and provides service to patients as far as 400+ miles away. The need in the immediate and distant communities are high, so Mayes has been able to work through financial limitations by adding new service lines and diversifying its portfolio with the various managed care organizations and IPA groups. With the pandemic experience since February 2020, in response to the Governor’s call to action during the first COVID-19 surge, Mayes decided to pivot available beds and transitioned beds/units for intensive care, acute and subacute level COVID-19 patients.
