Caleb Siem joined The Center in 2016 and currently serves as the Program Manager for the Technical Assistance & Services Center (TASC) and the Small Hospital Improvement Program team. His duties include directing and supporting staff, and ensuring that the training, technical assistance, and resources provided to state Flex Programs and the hospitals and rural communities they serve is both beneficial and relevant.
His more than 20 years of experience in the health care field — as a Program Specialist at TASC; as the state Flex Coordinator at the Colorado Rural Health Center, where he managed programs designed to support critical access hospitals; as an advocate for health care ethics; and as a nurse’s aide — have provided him with perspective and a deep appreciation for the way hospitals operate and the patient experience.
He earned a master’s degree from the University of Colorado Denver where he studied philosophy and bioethics, and a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from the University of Northern Colorado, where his coursework focused on ethics, public policy, and political science.
Caleb lives in Southern Minnesota and enjoys the outdoors — canoeing and hiking — and spending time with his family.
