County names new Health System chief: Board of Supervisors must approve at next meeting
July 02, 2015, 05:00 AM Daily Journal staff report

Louise Rogers

The San Mateo County Health System’s second in command, Louise Rogers, was nominated by County Manager John Maltbie Wednesday to replace outgoing Chief Jean Fraser.

The Board of Supervisors will vote on whether to tap Maltbie’s pick to replace Fraser at its July 7 meeting, the day before Fraser officially leaves the county position.

The county did not disclose what Rogers’ salary would be but Fraser earns approximately $300,000 a year.

The Health System, the county’s largest department, has 2,200 employees and a $716 million annual budget. It oversees the San Mateo Medical Center and clinics throughout the county.

Since 2011, Rogers has served as deputy chief of the Health System and was previously director of the Health System’s Behavioral Health and Recovery Services Division which serves more than 17,000 clients and has an annual budget of $133 million.

“Louise has long been an outstanding asset to our county’s Health System and I couldn’t be more excited to see her continuing its excellent delivery of equitable and compassionate care to clients, invaluable leadership to staff and unwavering commitment to keeping the entire community healthy,” Maltbie wrote in a statement.

The outgoing Fraser first worked with Rogers in the mid-1990s.

“Louise and I first worked together 20 years ago in San Francisco and I was immediately impressed by her smarts, savvy and commitment. My admiration for her has continued to grow and over the past four years as deputy chief, Louise has helped guide this very large and diverse organization. I am leaving with great confidence that the Health System and the people we serve will be in excellent hands,” Fraser wrote in a statement.

Prior to joining the Health System in 2003, Rogers held a variety of positions in public and nonprofit health organizations in San Francisco and New York City. She earned a bachelor’s degree from Yale University and a master’s degree in public administration from Golden Gate University.

“There is no other place with greater opportunities to help people through public service live longer and better lives than San Mateo County. It would be my honor to serve the county, the organization and our community in this new capacity,” Rogers wrote in a statement.
