Kelsie Olsen has worked in the healthcare industry for over 15 years in a variety of clinical roles, as well as diverse and complex leadership roles. Kelsie began her career as a Certified Nurse Assistant, specializing in Assisted Living, Post-Partum and Emergency Services. This is where she found her passion for Emergency Services and Trauma. After graduating with her ASN nursing school in 2009 from Weber State University, she joined the University of Utah Hospital and Clinics as a staff nurse in the Emergency Room for 10 years. During this time, she received her BSN from Boise State University and her MBA from the University Of Utah School Of Business.
During this time, she was offered leadership roles – both as a Charge Nurse and as the Assistant Manager – and quickly realized her passion for leading teams and watching them excel. She also helped oversee a Level 3 Trauma program within the Salt Lake County area and was instrumental in designing processes for transferring patients to higher level care facilities.
Kelsie joined HCA Healthcare’s Mountain Division in 2017 to help oversee the division’s Patient Transfer Center that covers Utah, Idaho, and Alaska. She is currently the division’s Assistant Vice President of Business Development and Outreach – a position she has held since 2019 – and loves visiting the rural hospitals and clinics throughout her region.
