Larry Ghan has years of experience in county government dealing with complex organizational, operational and administrative issues.
Prior to joining Newpoint, Larry was elected to nine consecutive terms in public office for Bannock County, Idaho, first as County Clerk and later as a County Commissioner and Chair of the Board of Commissioners. He completed his public service career as the Shoshone-Bannock Tribal Court Administrator.
During his time as a County Commissioner, Larry dedicated his skills to guiding the community through a number of complex issues. Most notably, he led a community-intensive process to determine the successful transformation of the struggling county-owned hospital. After a robust, often contentious public discussion, the county’s plan won 77 percent of the vote in a county referendum. The process and its result earned a cover story in the American Hospital Association’s Trustee magazine. The experience gave Larry a unique perspective on preserving the attributes of publicly-guided healthcare, despite challenges – a perspective he continues to offer public and community hospitals around the country.
Larry earned a B.A. in American studies from University of Minnesota and has done graduate work at Idaho State University’s School of Public Administration.
