Ethan Arnold

Strategic Advisor

Work hard, treat people with respect and good things will happen

Ethan brings to RLH a distinctive pairing of complementary skills in (i) process-driven operational excellence for service enterprises and (ii) the economics of health care providers.  His extraordinary expertise in these two disciplines has been honed over the course of a highly successful multi-decade career, which includes co-founding and serving as President of former RLH portfolio company, The Chartis Group.  In that role, Ethan has advised many of the most prominent academic medical centers in the US as well as large integrated medical groups and community health systems.

His renaissance-man diversity of experience includes receiving a bachelor’s degree in Chemistry, earning a Master of Public Health degree from Yale University’s School of Medicine, facilitating Board of Directors strategic planning sessions, performing turnaround consulting engagements, developing methodologies and tools for operational efficiency, and presenting at numerous conferences on topics such as process-centered organizational management.

Outside the Office: 

Ethan enjoys taking trips with his family, especially when the vacation includes the opportunity to experience other cultures.  And, you probably didn’t see this coming… he’s also a big HGTV fan!
