Phoenix-based The CORE Institute hired a new CFO and created a medical economics division to further build the practice.

The CORE Institute's former CFO, Brendan Baker, is transitioning to the newly created position of president of insurance and medical economics. He will lead The CORE Institute's medical economics division's clinically integrated networks. In this role Mr. Baker will oversee contracting with health systems and health plans for global capitation and bundled payment risk for musculoskeletal services.


To take over as CFO, the practice welcomed financial industry veteran Karin Meyer. Ms. Meyer has more than 20 years of experience managing financial operations for public and private corporations, most recently serving as the vice president of accounting and controller at Envision Healthcare.


"Brendan's track record coupled with extensive prior experience in the insurance industry makes him the perfect person to oversee these growing initiatives," said Chairman and CEO of The CORE Institute David Jacofsky, MD. "We are fortunate to have someone of Karin's caliber joining as our new CFO."


The CORE Institute, founded in 2005, includes locations in Arizona and Michigan. In September, the practice partnered with Phoenix-based Banner Health to own and operate Banner Del E. Webb Surgery Center in Glendale, Ariz.
