What They’re Watching: Elaine Couture, Chief Executive, Providence Health Care

We asked Elaine Couture, Chief Executive at Providence Health Care, what she’s watching in health care, particularly workforce challenges.

Elaine Couture spoke most recently at our 2014 Inland Northwest Conference on hospital system leadership in eastern Washington. As Chief Executive, Elaine oversees five medical centers including two critical access hospitals and a children’s hospital, plus a full range of health care services. The health system’s ability to adapt during industry’s state of flux is quite a test for any health system and Elaine shows how Providence is thriving.
