President and CEO, Intermountain Health
After five years as chief operating officer, Allen in 2022 moved into the CEO spot at Intermountain, which runs 33 hospitals and a health plan division covering more than 1 million members. After expanding into Colorado in 2022, Intermountain in 2023 formed a clinically integrated provider network in partnership with UCHealth and bought UCHealth Plan Administrators, a third-party administrator. Allen has spearheaded Intermountain’s strategy for making care more accessible and affordable by building out ambulatory surgery centers–31 already operational or in development–and outpatient imaging centers. Intermountain has also taken steps to carve a space for itself in the digital health sector. It is one of several health systems partnering to that end with venture capital firm General Catalyst, and Allen has pointed to Graphite Health, which Intermountain operates along with other systems, as a potential “grounding point” for the advancement of AI. He has held leadership positions at Intermountain for nearly 30 years.
