NEW: Fallon Total Care Names Mary C. Ritter First President

Newly formed integrated health care organization Fallon Total Care announced today that it has named Mary C. Ritter its first President.

Fallon's Board of Managers released the announcement today, effective November 19th. The newly formed Fallon Total Care is a joint venture between Fallon Community Health Plan (FCHP) and Magellan Health Services (NASDAQ: MGLN) that began in March 2012. Richard Burke, the Board of Managers' Chairman, believes the Board has found the perfect first President.

 “Mary is the ideal person to lead this new, innovative organization,” said Burke. “She has proven leadership skills, a deep understanding of the state’s health care system and experience in the delivery of coordinated care to vulnerable populations.”

Before her appointment as President and CEO of Fallon Total Care, Ritter was Senior Vice President of Strategic Planning and Corporate Communications at FCHP.

Fallon Total Care integrates Magellan’s expertise in behavioral health services and FCHP’s physical health capabilities and clinical experience to create an entirely new and transformative model of care specific to the so-called dual-eligible population.
 
“Building and guiding Fallon Total Care at such a dynamic time in the health care industry is a responsibility I am honored to have,” said Ritter. “Providing high-quality, coordinated care to such a vulnerable population is rewarding in itself, but this program will also demonstrate the value of the changes taking place in the health care environment.

“Once again, Massachusetts is taking the lead in finding innovative ways to deliver high quality, cost-effective care to all of its residents,” she added. “I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of developing a solution, especially for Massachusetts residents who are most vulnerable.”
