The Health Plan Names New Director of Engagement

As part of The Health Plan’s 2020 Vision of engaging its health care facilities and providers, the company is undergoing some restructuring of its provider network services area.

The first stage involves the appointment of Valerie Ogilbee as The Health Plan’s director of provider engagement and quality initiatives. Her appointment was announced by Jim Pennington, president and CEO.

In her new role, Ogilbee will work closely with Brad Minton, vice president of provider network services, and Patricia Fast, vice president of government programs and operations for The Health Plan.

Ogilbee joined The Health Plan in April 2001 to complete an internship for the health services administration program at Ohio University Eastern. Most recently, she was the director of quality analytics in the quality improvement department. She also served as the manager of health economics in the business intelligence unit and in the finance department as the health data manager.

Ogilbee received a Master of Public Health degree from West Virginia University in 2006. She also has certification in health care analytics.
