Mark Lillo, MD

Infectious Diseases, Santa Clara

“I’m thrilled with the new services for members in Santa Clara.”

Few leaders have been more influential in shaping the new Santa Clara Medical Center than Mark Lillo, MD.

In the late 1990s, Dr. Lillo was instrumental in writing the business case for the replacement medical center. He went on to become a prime mover in the design, planning and opening of the new Homestead MOB and the new hospital, named one of the 20 Most Beautiful Hospitals in the United States by Soliant Health.

He also helped develop the new Cardiovascular Services Program, the second of two KP hubs for cardiovascular services in Northern California; and implement an Inpatient Pediatric Center, a task that required consolidation of inpatient services from three medical centers. His efforts brought a new Inpatient Behavioral Health Center to the campus, the first of its kind in KP Northern California.

As APIC and former Chief of Medicine, he has been a champion for personal care and rigorous supply demand forecasting, and a leading advocate for direct booking.
