Cedars-Sinai Medical Network Selects Jill Martin as Executive Vice President


Newswise – LOS ANGELES (September 7, 2022) – Jill Martin has been tapped to lead Cedars-Sinai Medical Network as the new executive vice president, effective November 30.

Martin, who joined Cedars-Sinai Medical Network in 1997 as Chief Financial Officer, succeeds John Jenrette, MD, who is retiring after six years leading the medical network’s strategic expansion.

“Jill’s outstanding track record as a leader at Cedars-Sinai over the past 25 years has been a key factor in the growth and development of the medical network, as well as its integration with the rest of Cedars-Sinai and our affiliates. “said Thomas M. Prizelac, President and CEO of Cedars-Sinai. “She is highly regarded across Cedars-Sinai for her ability to bring a humanistic approach to operational and strategic issues.”

Martin was appointed vice president of finance for the Medical Network in 1999. In addition to overseeing the financial management of the organization, she led numerous initiatives to increase the capabilities of the Medical Network’s information systems to improve evidence-based clinical and financial decisions. She also assumed responsibility for the organization’s physician recruitment, medical practice acquisitions, managed care operations, human resources, risk management and compliance.

In 2016, Martin became senior vice president and chief operating officer of the medical network, reflecting increased responsibilities as the organization grew. Along with her colleagues on the leadership team, she led the development and implementation of a comprehensive strategic and financial plan that positioned the Medical Network to successfully meet the challenges of value-driven care.

As executive vice president, Martin will oversee the medical network, which now includes more than 1,000 physicians and 2,000 staff who provide patient healthcare, with more than one million patient visits annually. The organization also operates numerous Cedars-Sinai specialty practices and services throughout Los Angeles County, including joint venture ambulatory surgery centers, imaging and physical therapy centers. Additionally, the medical network recently began partnering with Cedars-Sinai’s new subsidiary, Huntington Health, in a number of specialty programs.

“I look forward to leading Cedars-Sinai Medical Network into its next stage of growth as we bring our world-class care closer to where people work and live in Los Angeles,” said Martin.

Martin, the first woman to lead the Medical Network, is also active in community and professional organizations. She serves on the CFO Council as well as the Women in Leadership Council of the American Medical Group Association and is active in the Women in Healthcare Administration of Southern California. She also served on the board of Imagine LA, a community organization dedicated to ending the cycle of family homelessness in Los Angeles.

“Jill’s ability to work collegially and effectively with all parts of Cedars-Sinai, along with her insight, candor and vision, will enable the Medical Network to continue its growth as a national leader in quality patient-centered care and as a desired workplace for physicians and staff,” said Prizelac.
