ORANGE, Calif. and TAMPA, Fla., Dec. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Alignment Healthcare has appointed David Jarboe as president of its Florida market to replace Kevin Enterlein, who passed away Nov. 12 after prolonged illness.
"Kevin was an inspiration to his co-workers and peers at Alignment, encouraging and supporting not only the professional growth of those around him, but their personal growth as well; he is remembered with fondness and admiration and is greatly missed," said Alignment Healthcare CEO John Kao. "David brings more than 18 years of executive-level experience in managing mixed-model health plans, which will be instrumental as we enter our second year in Florida."
Jarboe, a certified public accountant, will be responsible for Alignment Healthcare's overall performance in Florida as well as leading its provider network in the state. He has worked with Humana and its subsidiary CarePlus Health Plans for 25 years, ultimately building out a management team that expanded its service area and provider networks, reduced operating costs and led Humana to achieve the highest possible quality rating from Medicare.
Jarboe holds a Bachelor of Science from University of Kentucky and is a member of the Kentucky Society and American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. Alignment entered the Florida market on Jan. 1, 2016, opening freestanding care centers that serve Medicare beneficiaries in five Florida counties: Clay, Duval, Manatee, Pinellas and Sarasota. Alignment's clinicians coordinate and supplement the care of these Medicare members, with the help of predictive data analytics powered by more than 70,000 proprietary algorithms designed to improve care at lower costs.
