The MENTOR Network, which provides community-based health care and support services for people with disabilities hired Kelly Gluth, M.D., as its new chief clinical officer to help the company deepen its focus on integrating its services into the overall health care delivery system. The organization serves people with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) and older adults. The goal is to ensure that MENTOR Network consumers are able to receive timely medical care in the least intensive setting possible.

Dr. Gluth most recently was vice president, medical director of population health at Bon Secours Mercy Health, where she oversaw strategy, infrastructure, and operations for value-based care. Prior to that, she served as vice president and medical director of clinical transformation at Evolent Health where she was responsible for developing the value-based care strategy for clients and designing, implementing, and monitoring the clinical programs, physician engagement infrastructure, and network initiatives to support it.

The MENTOR Network provides home and community-based health care and individualized supports for adults, children, and families with physical, I/DD, or behavioral challenges. It serves more than 35,000 individuals across 37 states. On February 22, 2021, The MENTOR Network acquired D&S Community Services, which provides community-based services for more than 9,000 people located in Texas, Kentucky, and Tennessee.

This was reported by The MENTOR Network on March 11, 2021.

I wanted to share with you the key elements of our plan:

We will continue to monitor any changes in the CDC recommendations for the continued safety of the public.
