Former New Jersey health commissioner joins Rutgers Health

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — A former New Jersey state health commissioner has joined Rutgers' new health care provider organization.

Mary O'Dowd will serve as executive director for health systems and population health integration for Rutgers Health. The appointment was announced Tuesday.

University officials have said Rutgers Health will become one of the first academic health care provider organizations in the nation to integrate a full range of health-related specialties with more traditional fields. They say the organization's three-pronged operational framework will be developed over the next few years.

O'Dowd became health commissioner in 2011 and held the post until she stepped down last summer. She then became a member of the board of directors of Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey, the state's largest health insurance provider.
