"I'm honored to be acknowledged among such a distinguished group of healthcare executives," Cordova says. "This recognition reflects my personal dedication and commitment to diversity, and to Children's Hospital Los Angeles. I'm proud and privileged to lead CHLA, a unique children's hospital community with one of the nation's most diverse patient populations, and an equally diverse staff."

Modern Healthcare and the Furst Group, a healthcare executive search firm, compiled the distinguished list of honorees from almost 170 candidates who were evaluated by an editorial review board consisting of the senior editors at Modern Healthcare. The Top 25 was selected based on the following criteria:

  • Successfully serving an organization or company as a leader or manager;
  • Demonstrating the ability to effect change within the health industry;
  • Showing a willingness to share nowledge with other health care leaders;
  • Serving as a role model to other minority executives in health care; and
  • Assuming a leadership role in health care beyond the candidate's organization.


During Cordova's career, he has sought to promote diversity in the health care system, taking part in leadership roles in the Institute for Diversity in Health Management and the National Forum for Latino Healthcare Executives, organizations formed to nurture minorities aspiring to careers in healthcare. "I devote a lot of my volunteer work to areas of diversity and making sure that we cultivate the next generation of young people who can represent our industry and represent the communities we serve," Cordova says.

"Located in the heart of Los Angeles, CHLA serves a more diverse population than any other pediatric hospital in the nation and employs a diverse staff that is prepared to handle every kind of patient-presenting itself as a unique hospital community," Cordova says.

Cordova assumed his current position at Children's Hospital Los Angeles in 2006 and has led the institution to its current standing as one of the top five children's hospitals in the nation, according to U.S. News & World Report best children's hospital survey. Cordova himself has received a number of awards, accolades and nominations in his career, including his selection to the "The Most Powerful People in Healthcare" list compiled by Modern Healthcare, and "CEO of the Year" by the Los Angeles Business Journal. He also has been nominated as chairman-elect of the American College of Healthcare Executives.
