OC Supervisors Make Controversial Hospital Executive Appointment to Public Health Plan Board

A regional hospital association is raising concerns about OC supervisors appointing someone without local hospital experience to the hospital position at the county’s public health insurance board.

Two OC supervisors also echoed those same concerns last week, when a slim majority of their colleagues – led by Andrew Do – disregarded industry group concerns and appointed Blair Contratto, a longtime executive at nonprofit hospitals and health centers in LA County.

Contratto is slated to take the hospital administrator seat at CalOptima, Orange County’s $4 billion publicly-funded health insurance plan for one in every four residents.
