A Consistent Influence

For more than 100 years, the LACMA has been a
constant voice for the local medical community


Executive Office

Chief Executive Officer - Gustavo Friederichsen

Gustavo Friederichsen
My sole purpose as CEO of LACMA is to serve physicians, defend them, protect the practice of medicine and ensure that our organization is more than relevant; it flourishes. I’ve been in healthcare long enough to know a thing or two about medicine but not long enough to stop caring for the sanctity of the physician-patient experience. Hospitals are my second home having served in executive leadership capacities at three large health systems in Southern California: ScrippsHealth (Director of Public Relations/Marketing), Sharp Healthcare (Vice President, Marketing, Communications and International Business) and Palomar Health (Senior Vice President, CMO, Marketing, Communications and Legislative Affairs). Most recently I served as Vice President at Healthgrades, a healthcare technology company. I firmly believe that if it matters to physicians, it matters to me.

Vice President, Operations and Strategic Initiatives - Lisa Le

My initial plans to study Pre-Med in college changed, but I stayed in healthcare and have worked in the field ever since. I joined LACMA as Executive Assistant to the CEO in 2008. As Vice President of Operations and Strategic Initiatives, I work closely with everyone on the LACMA team and our physicians. In this expanded role at LACMA, I continue to build on skills and experience important to me – supporting the doctors who are dedicated to their job of helping people. My days are pretty full juggling career and the needs of my young family. One of my favorite ways to unwind is with a good book. Contact: lisa@lacmanet.org
