UC health center names Terry Leach executive director
Terry Leach has worn many hats: registered nurse, health attorney and health policy consultant, instructor and manager.
Her diverse background has served her well the past seven months as interim executive director of the University of California’s Center for Health Quality and Innovation (CHQI), which focuses on improving the delivery of care. Now she can take away the interim in her title. The CHQI board announced on May 25 that it has named Leach as executive director for a three-year term beginning June 1.
“Terry has a passion for innovation, a breadth of experience and has shown the ability to bring people together across the UC Health system,” said Dr. John Stobo, CHQI chairman and UC senior vice president for health sciences and services. “She is the right choice to lead the innovation center’s efforts to improve health care for Californians.”
The center’s goal is to support innovations at the UC health campuses that can transform the way the health needs of Californians are addressed, improving quality, access and value in the delivery of care.
