Alice Issai

President

Adventist Health Glendale

As the president of Adventist Health Glendale, a full-service, 515-bed acute care teaching facility in Glendale, Alice Issai is responsible for the healthcare needs of more than 145,000 patients each year. Her leadership has directly impacted the quality of life and health of residents in Glendale and the surrounding area. Under Issai’s leadership, Adventist Health Glendale began the year with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services awarding the facility five stars — the highest possible — for quality, one of only a small handful of facilities to achieve that honor. The facility also received the Leapfrog Group’s ‘A’ grade for the 10th consecutive time, an achievement fewer than 3.5% of hospitals nationwide can boast. Additionally, under Issai’s stewardship, the facility earned top recognition for its comprehensive stroke care from the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. Issai is the first woman to lead Adventist Health Glendale.
