By Missy Wohldmann

Dear Dr. Marcinko and ME-P Readers, 

Centene Corporation is seeking a Chief Medical Director (CMD) for Magnolia Health Plan (Magnolia), a wholly-owned subsidiary and HMO for the state of Mississippi. The regional headquarters for Magnolia is located in Jackson, Mississippi.

About Centene

A Fortune 500 company, Centene is a national leader in low-cost solutions for high quality healthcare services for uninsured and underinsured patients. Centene’s subsidiary health plans bring better health outcomes to their 1.5 million members. Centene’s core philosophy is that quality healthcare is best delivered locally. This local approach enables them to provide accessible, high quality and culturally sensitive healthcare services to their members in their own communities.

Visionary Needed

The Chief Medical Director will establish the strategic vision and attendant policies and procedures for Magnolia Health Plan. The CMD will provide leadership and direction to the medical management, quality improvement and credentialing functions for Magnolia Health Plan based on, and in support of, the company’s strategic plan. The CMD will review analyses of activities, costs, operations and forecast data to determine progress toward stated goals and objectives. Also within the purview of CMD will be oversight for compliance with National Committee on Quality Assurance (NCQA) and/or Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organization (JACHO) standards as determined for accreditation of the health plan.


Successful candidates will be physician leaders with thorough knowledge of quality improvement practices and familiarity with medical information systems, medical claims payment processing and coding. Knowledge of managed care, Medicaid, and case management programs are also essential. Board certification in a recognized medical specialty and an active medical license are required.

We welcome your interest, or nominations, for this highly visible role.
