Modern Healthcare - - NEWS MAKERS -

Who: Dr. Jan­ice Nevin, 54

Up­com­ing role: CEO of Chris­tiana Care Health Sys­tem in Wilm­ing­ton, Del., ef­fec­tive Jan. 1. She cur­rently serves as the sys­tem’s chief med­i­cal of­fi­cer and chief pa­tientsafety of­fi­cer. Nevin will re­place Dr. Robert Laskowski, who is re­tir­ing.

Her top pri­or­ity: “We have been work­ing over the past sev­eral years to re­ally bring what we call value to our neigh­bors. I’m go­ing to con­tinue to move us along the curve from vol­ume to value like so many or­ga­ni­za­tions. … We’re tak­ing the com­mit­ment we have for this work not only to the pa­tients who come to our fa­cil­i­ties, but also out into our com­mu­nity through the ini­tia­tives we’re tak­ing in pop­u­la­tion health.”

On her fam­ily medicine back­ground: “I come from a place where I un­der­stand how im­por­tant so­cial de­ter­mi­nants are to the health of the pop­u­la­tion. I un­der­stand how im­por­tant it is to en­gage pa­tients and mem­bers in the com­mu­nity. … And I’ve had the ex­pe­ri­ence of be­ing in a room oneon-one with a pa­tient who is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a health chal­lenge.”

Delaware and beyond: “I love that we’re in Delaware and that it’s a small state. We have a very col­lab­o­ra­tive re­la­tion­ship with folks in state gov­ern­ment and other providers and com­mu­nity or­ga­ni­za­tions. Although we’re in Delaware, we also draw pa­tients from Penn­syl­va­nia, Maryland and south New Jersey. We re­ally are a re­gional provider.”
