FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Sept. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Sunshine Health, a wholly owned subsidiary of Centene Corporation, is pleased to announce the appointment of Nathan Landsbaum as Plan President and Chief Executive Officer, effective Sept. 26.
Mr. Landsbaum joined Centene in 2005. Most recently, he served as CEO for Home State Health, where he led Centene's Missouri market for the past four years. Previously, he served as Vice President of Finance for Sunshine Health and was promoted in 2015 to Chief Operating Officer for the plan.
On Oct. 1, 2021, Sunshine Health will combine with Staywell Health Plan, making it the state's largest Medicaid managed care organization. The merger is part of Centene's acquisition of WellCare Health Plans, which closed in January 2020.
"Nathan is an innovative and proven leader with a track record of motivating teams, managing health plan operations, and executing on our mission to help transform the health of our members and local communities," said Gregg MacDonald, Centene's Senior Vice President of Markets. "His leadership will be instrumental as we work to integrate Centene's combined plans across Florida while ensuring we continue to deliver high-quality care and services to our members across the state."
Landsbaum will oversee the combined Florida health plan, which will offer Medicaid, Marketplace, Medicare, and the Children's Medical Services (CMS) Health Plan to 2.3 million members across the state. The combined health plan includes best practices and innovations from both organizations and offers members richer benefits and access to a larger network of providers.
"Over the past four years, the Sunshine Health team has done incredible work to grow our plan and serve our members and local communities in the Sunshine State," said Landsbaum. "I look forward to returning to Florida and leveraging the size and scope of our combined plan to better serve our members, providers, government customers, and community partners."
