Charles Larson

Clinical Operations Regional Lead

Central Logic

Charles Larson is the Clinical Operations Regional Lead at Central Logic.

As a forward-thinking leader with demonstrated success in system-level oversight of hospitals and patient safety across 6 states, I am well known for establishing objectives, driving and directing operations, and advancing high-profile projects and initiatives.

LEADERSHIP & STRATEGY
Throughout my career, I have earned a reputation as a dynamic and effective leader who leverages clinical, technical, and business acumen to achieve, and often exceed, programmatic, operational, and financial objectives. My expertise was sought out by the Arizona Department of Health Services to take a step back from Banner Health Transfer Services to lead the stand-up of the Arizona Surge Line in response to COVID-19 pandemic; built capacity to manage more than 100 patient transfers per day.

OPERATIONS & EXECUTION
I’ve been highly successful in directing clinical operations and transfer services, leading top-performing staff, and administering multimillion-dollar budgets. During my tenure, I’ve established operational strategies that maximized performance, optimized processes and efficiencies, and created high-performance cultures. In a recent role, I was recognized for playing a pivotal role in transitioning a department into a division and adding upward of $14 million to the overall operation in just one year.

RECOGNITION
Over the course of a highly successful career, I have earned numerous awards and distinction, including Banner Baywood Medical Center’s Nurse Leader of the Year in 2017. Additional recognition includes American College of Healthcare Executives – Member (ACHE), Pursuit of Fellowship (FACHE) Graduate, Nurse Director Fellowship, American Organization for Nursing Leadership (AONL), and Graduate, Banner Health Nurse Fellow.

My educational background includes current work on a Doctor of Nursing Practice, Executive Leadership from American Sentinel University pending December 2021.

Appearances, Video Clips and Quotes

There are quite a few miniature health systems in the Phoenix Metro and Tucson Metro area. And what we found was that we needed to be able to see and integrate and work together. We need to know who has beds when and where, and ventilators and staff. So a big win for us and what made us successful earlier was that our state Health Information Exchange, Health Current, already had ADT interfaces with 95% of the state. And so with Banner Health we have a specific integration with Central Logic for our own bed visibility. But the HIE allowed us to have Central Logic interface with HIE to get the information in and translate into the language that we needed to see the beds.

Amplify great thinking to propel healthcare forward and raise up the next generation of health leaders.
