Charles Sederstrom, MSN, RN
Co-Founder and Chief Administrative Officer
Charles has a wealth of experience across the healthcare continuum and has always adopted a careful and analytical approach to decision-making. Objectivity and accuracy are core values and day-to-day operations have long been his area of focus. Charles helped establish the first neurocritical care unit at MedStar Washington Hospital Center and was instrumental in that institution becoming the first hospital in Washington D.C. to be designated by the Joint Commission as a Comprehensive Stroke Center. These experiences, and those that have followed, have highlighted the importance of focusing on specific operations while maintaining a holistic view of an organization.
UzObi is dedicated to ensuring every person’s voice and values become the point at which all conversations/decisions revolve when they become a patient in our healthcare system. Charles continuously calculates how our organization will achieve this goal, identifies and works to overcome barriers, and creates standards to ensure our product and services are delivered objectively and reliably.
