The CHA represents over 400 hospitals and health systems in California.

    “I’m excited about the opportunity to work with hospital leaders from across our state as we help shape a healthcare delivery system of the future for California,” Wilde said. “Healthcare needs to be more affordable and more accessible, and hospitals must be leaders in these efforts. This renewed commitment to our patients and our communities will drive our efforts this year.”        

    Wilde joined CMHS, a not-for-profit health system, in 2004. CMHS is comprised of Community Memorial Hospital in Ventura, Ojai Valley Community Hospital, the Centers for Family Health and other specialty clinics. Wilde has successfully led the health system as it greatly expanded its services and facilities and built a brand new state-of-the art hospital. Wilde previously spent 22 years in top leadership positions with Cottage Health System in Santa Barbara, becoming executive vice president and chief operating officer in 2000. 

    Earlier in his career, Wilde worked for St. Luke’s Hospital in Phoenix and Bristol Myers (Squibb) in Syracuse, N.Y. Wilde earned his bachelor’s degree from Brigham Young University, a master’s in Health Services Administration from Arizona State University School of Business, and a doctorate degree in Health Administration from Medical University of South Carolina.  

    Wilde also serves on a number of boards within and outside the healthcare field. He has served as the chair of the Hospital Association of Southern California, chair of the Ventura Chamber of Commerce, and chair of Creative Testing Solutions, the largest non-profit blood donor testing laboratory organization in the country.
