As a true community hospital, Yuma Regional Medical Center is guided by two boards made up of community members, the Yuma Regional Medical Center Board of Directors and the Yuma County Hospital District, along with an executive leadership team consisting of professionals who are top in their fields.


Robert Trenschel, DO, MPH

President & Chief Executive Officer

Dr. Robert “Bob” Trenschel brings nearly 20 years of healthcare and medical management experience to Yuma Regional Medical Center. His strong focus on population health emphasizes the hospital’s responsibility to utilize its resources in a way that benefits the overall health and well-being of the community and region.
