Health Share of Oregon applauds Janet Meyer for her years of service;

announces appointment of interim CEO

 

(Portland, Ore.) – Health Share of Oregon announced today that Janet Meyer has resigned as Chief Executive Officer, effective September 4. Maggie Bennington-Davis, Chief Medical Officer at Health Share, will serve as interim CEO while the board conducts a national search for Meyer’s successor.

 

Health Share of Oregon is the state’s largest Medicaid coordinated care organization (CCO), serving Oregon Health Plan (OHP) members in Clackamas, Multnomah, and Washington counties. Meyer has served as CEO since Health Share was founded in 2012.

 

“Janet has led Health Share from its initial development to the thriving community asset it is today, and we want to thank her for her dedication and service,” said Eric Hunter, chairman of the board of Health Share. “As the first CCO contract period ends and we envision the next iteration of Health Share and CCOs in our state, this is a natural time for a transition in leadership. We are excited about the future of Health Share and committed to continuing to serve people and communities in our region.”

 

Hunter noted that the decision to make a leadership transition was a mutual decision by Meyer and the Health Share board.

 

 “I am proud of the work Health Share has done over the past six years to build cross-sector collaboration dedicated to improving the health of our members,” said Meyer. “We could not have come this far without the commitment and passion of Health Share’s staff and community partners, and the organization is poised for future success in delivering on its mission of better care, smarter spending and healthier people.”
