Charles Green, a retired Air Force general and a former surgeon general for the branch, has joined Deloitte‘s federal health practice as chief medical officer and will serve as a director for Deloitte Consulting LLP.
The 35-year Air Force veteran most recently served as vice chairman and senior partner at health services consultant Martin, Blanck & Associates, Deloitte said Tuesday.
Kelvin Womack, head of the federal health practice and a principal at Deloitte Consulting LLP, said Green will aim to grow Deloitte’s healthcare consulting footprint in the federal market and work with both federal and commercial clients.
As surgeon general, Green acted as functional manager of the U.S. Air Force Medical Service and worked with the branch’s secretary, chief of staff and the assistant defense secretary for health affairs on issues such as health of service members and their families.
Green has also served as deputy surgeon general, assistant surgeon general for healthcare operations and command surgeon for three major commands.
He helped plan joint medical response for two military missions in Iraq during 2008 and oversaw aeromedical evacuation operations during the 2001 and 2003 invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.
Other Air Force roles included command of four hospitals such as the Wilford Hall Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas.
Early in the 1990s, he planned and led two humanitarian relief efforts in the Philippines after an earthquake and later in response to the eruption of Mount Pinatubo.
