Dear Friends,

I am writing to announce a new $15 million strategic partnership between the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers and UnitedHealthcare, the country’s largest insurer and our longtime partner in Camden. Over the next three years, the Camden Coalition and UnitedHealthcare will be working together to develop, test, and scale new models of care for patients with complex health and social needs.

As part of this partnership, I will be leaving the Camden Coalition to lead myConnections, a new business group at UnitedHealthcare. myConnections will be tasked with bringing new models of care to more than 1 million clinicians and 6,000 hospitals and care facilities nationwide.

The decision to step down from the organization that I founded 15 years ago was not an easy one to make. The Camden Coalition has grown from a small local project to a national movement influencing the way that cared is delivered to patients with complex health and social needs. We have learned that unlocking value and improving quality requires integrating medical, behavioral health, addiction, and social services in ways that advances the health and well-being of all patients.

This partnership is an exciting opportunity to accelerate our work, and the innovative health care delivery work of states like New Jersey. At a time of change in our country, a vision and strategy for better care at lower cost for America’s most vulnerable patients is more important than ever.

I have the utmost confidence that our talented staff, which has grown to a team of almost 100, will continue moving this work forward in ways that I cannot yet imagine. As our board of directors begins its search for the Camden Coalition’s next leader, I will remain in a transitional role. After my transition to myConnections I will not be far away: myConnections offices will be located in the same building as the Coalition’s offices in Camden, NJ. I am excited that this partnership will result in a new business in Camden and additional employment opportunities for city residents and our region. Camden is becoming a hub of healthcare innovation influencing the nation.

As we begin this new chapter in our organization’s history, I hope you will continue to stand with us. Times like these call for leadership and for new and unusual partnerships. Thank you for all you do and continue to do.

Sincerely,

Jeffrey Brenner, MD
Executive Director, Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers
