James Cruz, M.D.
Medical Director
Dr. Cruz joined Arcadian Health Services in March of 2009 as the Medical Director of the Management Services Organization for California. He is responsible for the utilization review and quality management of health care resources for medical groups which provide access to care in rural and urban regions of California.
His medical education began at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine in 1982. He selected a residency in Family Medicine at White Memorial Medical Center in East Los Angeles and later completed a Community Medicine Fellowship in conjunction with the School of Public Health at UCLA, where his course work emphasized health care services administration.
Throughout his career, Dr. Cruz has demonstrated his commitment to primary care for multicultural and underserved communities. He has developed several medical residency programs, most notably the Pomona Family Medicine Program, which was designed to prepare family physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants to practice in medically underserved communities. Most recently, he served as the Chief Medical Officer of AltaMed Health Services, the largest federally qualified health center in California, where he was responsible for directing the quality of medical services to underserved families in Los Angeles and Orange Counties.
