Charles (“Chuck”) Salvo is a Managing Director who has spent 25 years working for healthcare organizations in advisory services and in health system leadership. Most recently, Chuck served as Senior Vice President for a large urban based health system. During his tenure, the system executed a merger with two other safety net providers, converting one organization to an ambulatory campus and deploying the EPIC electronic medical record to the new system members. Chuck successfully created an integrated physician organization that aligned more than 400 physicians on a common practice management system and instituted a system-wide quality and productivity-based compensation model.
Chuck spent much of his career in advisory roles with firms including Ernst & Young, Arthur Andersen and Grant Thornton, specializing in strategic and financial planning. In his roles, he managed multiple debt restructuring and credit enhancement engagements generating more than $1b in new financing for hospitals and health systems.
In addition to strategy and financial improvement, Chuck is skilled at physician integration, service line development, mergers, acquisitions and clinical affiliations. He spent nearly four years rebuilding clinical relationships between two competing systems to improve access and care in Central Brooklyn. This relationship is critical to a $650 million investment by the State of New York to reduce health disparities and improve outcomes for underserved communities.
Chuck started his career at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), and credits CHOP’s culture, integrity and relentless focus on taking care of children as a key foundation for his core values.
Chuck is a Certified Healthcare Finance Professional and is a member of the Healthcare Finance Management Association, where he also served as a Committee Chair and Board Member. He is also a member of the Turnaround Management Association.
He holds an M.B.A from LaSalle University in Finance/Healthcare and a BS in Finance from Saint Joseph’s University.
