Care Integration Expert Joins Centura Health

(ENGLEWOOD, COLO.) Mark Selna, MD, has joined Centura Health as senior vice president, care integration and continuity, to lead the growing systems efforts to increase process reliability and clinical effectiveness throughout the enterprise. Dr. Selnas primary responsibilities include overseeing five Systems of Care Centura Health Trauma System, Centura Health Heart & Vascular Network, Centura Health Cancer Network, Centura Health Neurosciences and Centura Health Childrens Network as well as Centura Health Employer Solutions, the network/service products that can be directly purchased by self-funded employers.

Dr. Selna came to Centura Health with expertise in large health systems serving patients with vastly diverse needs. From 2010-2014 he was vice president of clinical Integration at Sutter Health System, an integrated health care delivery system with 27 hospitals and 5,000 physicians in Northern California. He also served as a regional chief medical officer and as chief accountable care officer for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation. At Sutter, Dr. Selna was known for developing high-quality delivery networks serving entire communities, as well as for creating ways to reduce unnecessary variation in the way care was provided. Prior to that, Dr. Selna served as associate chief innovation officer for Geisinger Health System and as chief medical officer for various provider-owned, multi-state health plans.

However, having worked in Colorado from 1990-1996 (as a pediatrician and physician executive with the Colorado Permanente Medical Group) and with three generations of native Coloradans in his family, Dr. Selna views is joining Centura Health as a much-desired homecoming.

Dr. Selna joined the Centura Health executive leadership team in September.
