Portland, Oregon — Legacy Health announced today it will expand its executive team with the internal promotion of two senior leaders.
Bryce Helgerson, who most recently served as president of Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center, has been named as chief integration officer (CIO) and Trent Green, who most recently served as president of Legacy Emanuel Medical Center and Unity Center for Behavioral Health, has been named as chief operating officer (COO).
The appointments, which are effective April 1, 2019, serve as a launchpad for Legacy Health’s continued focus on performance excellence, financial sustainability and strategic growth.
Helgerson and Green will report to Kathryn Correia, who became president and chief executive officer of Legacy Health in June 2018.
As CIO, a new position for Legacy Health, Helgerson will focus on aligning internal and external relationships with many of the organization’s ambulatory, non-hospital operations including Legacy Medical Group, Care Transformation, Legacy Health Partners, PacificSource, Care Support Resources and Legacy GoHealth Urgent Care.
He brings more than 20 years of experience in multi-hospital and academic health systems at both the hospital and system level. Previously, Helgerson served as vice president of hospital operations at Legacy Emanuel and Randall Children’s Hospital and chief administrative officer of Legacy Mount Hood Medical Center.
As COO, Green will focus on innovation in Legacy Health’s hospital operations and service lines and will have responsibility for Legacy Laboratory Services and Legacy Imaging Services.
Unity Center will continue to be a part of his portfolio of responsibilities as well. Green will oversee the OHSU Knight-Legacy Health Cancer Collaborative, the LifeFlight partnership as well as other ventures that directly impact hospital operations.
Prior to his most recent role, Trent served as Legacy Health’s senior vice president, chief strategy officer and president of Legacy Medical Group.
He brings more than 20 years of experience in leading health care organizations, with specific strengths and accomplishments in clinic and hospital operations, strategic planning, business development, marketing, mergers and acquisitions and finance.
Green succeeds Mike Newcomb, D.O. who retired in December 2018.
