Miller Children’s Hospital Long Beach appointed, Randy Gordon, President and CEO of the Long Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, to Chair of the Miller Children’s Advisory Board, succeeding Jay Davis. Mr. Gordon will oversee the 30-member board, as well as its Fund Development and Quality Board Committees. Gordon’s expertise and patient and family advocacy will serve well in representing Miller Children’s strengths and accomplishing the Advisory Board’s goals.
Miller Children’s advisory board members’ community fundraising efforts were integral to the completion and opening of the Miller Children’s Pavilion in December 2009. Their focus will remain on the Pavilion for phase II of the expansion project which encompasses initiatives to expand the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Pediatric Hematology-Oncology Unit.
Gordon has served as the President and CEO of the Long Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, a membership organization of more than 1,000 businesses in the greater Long Beach region, since April 1994. His community involvement includes board memberships on the YMCA and the California State University of Long Beach College of Engineering Advisory Board. Currently, Gordon serves as Treasurer of the Long Beach Ronald McDonald House Board of Directors, in anticipation of the opening of Long Beach’s first Ronald McDonald House on the Miller Children’s campus in fall 2011.
“My goal is for Miller Children’s Hospital Long Beach to continue to expand community fundraising efforts and partnerships and be a national leader in healthcare, education and research for children and expectant mothers,” says Gordon. “By continuing to grow programs and services, patients and family members will be able to take full advantage of new programs, quality healthcare, physician expertise and research funding.”
