In the course of his career, Nathan Green, a fellowship-trained cardiologist and skilled medical executive, has not only made strides in his clinical practice but also as a leader in large health systems.
Green is currently practicing at Saltzer Health’s Ten Mile Medical Campus in Meridian, where he brings over 15 years of clinical experience, including working as an interventional cardiologist in several small regional hospitals in the Northwest, at Group Health Cooperative in Seattle, and at Cardiovascular Associates in Denver. He also has extensive executive leadership experience — in Idaho, he led St. Luke’s Heart & Vascular program as the system medical director. In addition, he has served as the regional chief medical officer for CardioSolution and as the medical director of cardiovascular services for Group Health Cooperative in Puget Sound.
All of this led to Green being asked to join Saltzer Health, an Intermountain Healthcare company, to build a cutting-edge outpatient cardiology program.
“As the cardiology medical director, I not only care for patients, but I’m also leading the mission to quickly bring together a robust team of expert cardiology providers and technicians who are committed to patient access, experience and improved outcomes,” said Green.
Green and his team are at the forefront of what he calls a “major transition to move cardiovascular services out of the hospital.” This move to provide care in the outpatient setting instead of in hospital is meant to provide care at a lower cost and with easier access, something Green is passionate about in his field.
