Today on the Social-Engineer Podcast: The Security Awareness Series, Ryan and I are joined by Stuart Archer. Stuart is a dynamic health care leader with a proven track record of quality improvement, growth and innovation. He began his health care career at the bedside as a nurse’s aide, building within him a laser-like focus on a patient-first care model and building teams guided by empathy and compassion. He took the helm at Oceans Healthcare in 2015 and has since shepherded in a period of unprecedented improvement and growth.


Oceans is now an industry leader, among very few behavioral health providers to implement much-needed quality benchmarking tools like patient depression and anxiety questionnaires and implementing a companywide electronic medical records system.


Oceans has earned numerous awards, including being named one of the Inc. 5000’s fastest-growing companies in America for six consecutive years.


Mr. Archer is an at-large board member of the National Association of Behavioral Healthcare, was named the 2021 D CEO Magazine Outstanding Healthcare Executive and earned the 2018 EY’s Entrepreneur of the Year in Healthcare award for the Southwest region. [Nov 20, 2023]
