Charlie Fazio

Sr. Vice President, Medical Director


Health care delivery and health care financing are complex, inter-related systems. We have patients, members and other participants in those systems who are not happy with current results. Significant change requires collaboration and redesign, and HealthPartners is at the forefront of that redesign.


Dr. Charlie Fazio has 35 years of clinical and health administration experience. Dr. Fazio currently serves as the Senior Vice President and Medical Director of the HealthPartners health plan. In this role, he is responsible for programs that improve the health of plan members, as well as initiatives that improve the quality, service and affordability of the health care plan members receive. He has extensive experience in quality improvement, cross-community collaboration, health care finance and public policy.
