She has a giving spirit and her dedication to the San Jose/Silicon Valley community is evident.

In her professional life, she manages Kaiser Permanente San Jose Medical Center’s hospital and outpatient medical offices. She leads over 400 physicians and 3,200 nurses and health care professionals in Santa Clara and Santa Cruz Counties.

She spearheads the hospital operations, health plan operations and community benefit with over 270,000 members from San Jose down to Watsonville.

One of the extraordinary qualities about Irene is not her ability to successfully run an award-winning hospital in Santa Clara County, but her desire and fight to help others in need.

Those that personally know her say that she is nothing short of kind and generous and is recognized as someone who will go that extra mile to make a difference in the life of an individual – man, woman, or child.

Congratulations to our 2018 Distinguished Businesswoman of the Year: Irene Chavez, Sr. Vice President and Area Manager for Kaiser Permanente.
