Paul Viviano is an indefatigable advocate for children. This charismatic and kind CEO of CHLA is dedicated to leading with a special dedication to half million patients that annually seek medical care. Just take a walk through the hospital halls and you will find Paul greeting caregivers, patients, their families with intrinsic interest.
Knowing how important good nutrition is, he shares the story of the removal of profitable fast food option near the front of the hospital. CHLA was the operator. Setting a good example is important to Paul. Today, that space is a chapel, dedicated by Archbishop Gomez for all faiths, where worried families can pray in peace.
His second joy is serving as Chairman of the Board of Trustees at LMU. He is dedicated to young adults and to the school that will broaden their education horizons and continue in the Jesuit tradition of being men and women for others. He humbly receives the Cardinal’s Awards recognizing “It is a blessing that I can play a small part in bringing notoriety for the world-class work they do.”
He is organic, he is the real deal…….In his office, a small plaque on his desk summarizes him well: “There is no limit to what a man can do or where he can go if he doesn’t mind who gets the credit.”
