Today, Wellpath announced Dr. Thomas Pangburn as the company’s new Chief Clinical Officer. Prior to joining Wellpath, Dr. Pangburn was the Chief Innovation Officer at MedExpress and previously served more than a decade as the Director of Emergency Services at Heritage Valley Health Systems.
Dr. Pangburn led clinical initiatives for UnitedHealth Group and Optum that addressed quality and total cost of care. Dr. Pangburn’s work tackled some of the toughest challenges facing health care today including chronic disease management, value-based payment innovation for providers and hospital systems and community-based programs that focused on the consumer centric experience, affordability, and valued based medicine.
“Throughout Dr. Pangburn’s career, he has shown his commitment to compassionate care for every patient,” said Wellpath CEO, Jorge Dominicis. “He is a leader in the health care field, and his commitment to medicine and patient-focused care make him an excellent addition to our team.”
Dr. Pangburn’s hiring follows the tenure of Dr. Carl Keldie who helped transform the position since he came to Wellpath in 2015. Dr. Keldie will be assisting Dr. Pangburn during the transition before beginning his new position helping to lead the recruitment and onboarding of top physicians, increasing Wellpath’s external presence, and expanding the company’s client relations.
Wellpath is a leading healthcare company transforming public health by delivering hope and healing to those who need it most.
