Andy Davidson

Andy Davidson, president of Gallagher Healthcare, joined the board in 2023, bringing with him three decades of experience working with leaders from community hospitals, health systems, physician practices, payers, and health care technology companies.

From 2005 to 2019, Davidson served as president and CEO of the Oregon Association of Hospitals and Health Systems. He was also a founding board member of the Oregon Health Leadership Council and the Oregon Health Network, and he recently completed 12 years on the board of Central City Concern, one of Oregon’s largest Federally Qualified Health Centers and providers of low-income housing.

Davidson earned his degree in English literature from the University of New Hampshire and participated in the first Executive Leadership Program on Healthcare Policy and Reform at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.

Reason for service: “St. Charles exists to serve our patients and we have an obligation to consistently strive to meet them where they are. I see the work of the board and the health system as an extension of the communities we serve.”
