Chris Allen
Chief Financial Officer
Keck Medical Center of USC

Chris Allen is chief financial officer for Keck Medical Center, which consists of Keck Hospital of USC, a 401-bed acute care hospital, and the 60-bed hospital, USC Norris Cancer Hospital. Keck Medical Center is part of Keck Medicine of USC, USC’s medical enterprise and one of only two university-based medical systems in the Los Angeles area. As the medical center’s chief financial officer, Allen leads financial strategy, long-range financial planning and capital process, working closely with the leadership across both hospitals and Keck Medicine.

Due to his financial acumen and leadership skills, Allen was selected as interim chief financial officer in the summer of 2020, where he was key in reviewing affiliation and joint venture activities. He also led the completion of a funds flow model to align equity distribution between the health system and USC, in conjunction with USC and Keck Medicine leadership. Eventually his talents were tapped last June to become the medical center’s CFO.

Daily, Allen manages the complexities of health care and the entire health care industry, which includes government regulations, the insurance industry, labor unions, banking and financing industry and medical device and pharmaceutical companies all while making sure that the clinicians and physicians at the medical center have the resources to take care of patients today and tomorrow.

Allen is a supportive and compassionate leader who encourages his team to speak up and to take chances, grow, and be ready for the next step of their career. He is a self-starter with a knack for seeing and filling a need.
