DHHS Transitions Control of Cardinal Innovations to New Board, Leadership Team

Raleigh, NC

Today at the Cardinal Innovations Board meeting in Winston-Salem, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services transitioned leadership and governance of the organization to the new board and to the Cardinal Innovations executive leadership team.

DHHS has been on site at Cardinal since November supervising the operations of the agency and working with interim leadership to develop a formal Corrective Action Plan that addresses various issues at Cardinal that were identified in recent audits and oversight activities. 

"I feel confident that the new board and leadership team of Cardinal Innovations will keep its focus on the patients and consumers they serve," said DHHS Secretary Mandy Cohen, MD.

The new board was appointed in December by Boards of Commissioners in the counties served by Cardinal. This official board meeting follows training sessions that DHHS led to provide information on Cardinal, the new board’s responsibilities and the department's expectations for the LME/MCO which serves 20 central North Carolina counties.
