Hunter Clark is an Account Executive with the Chartis Center for Rural Health. Mr. Clark has spent more than three years advising individual rural providers as well as networks of rural providers across the country. He collaborates with senior hospital leadership teams and Boards to provide leadership development and education on trends impacting the state of rural healthcare. In addition, Mr. Clark assists with the development of strategic initiatives at rural hospitals through performance benchmarking in areas such as finance, payments, costs, quality, patient satisfaction, market share and population health.
In addition to his interaction with rural hospital executives, Mr. Clark supports research on rural acute-care provider performance, focusing on hospitals at opposite ends of the spectrum: those which are excelling in today’s rapidly changing rural environment and those facilities deemed vulnerable. This research drives statewide initiatives to help hospital associations, networks and regional health systems formulate strategies for transition to new delivery models. Mr. Clark has presented research at several rural health conferences and network meetings around the country, including Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Montana and Nebraska.
