Sutter Health hires CEO for HMO plan
Sacramento Business Journal

Sutter Health has hired a CEO for a new HMO plan currently under development. Stephen Nolte, 52, has consulted with Sutter on the project for the past few months. On Dec. 31, he’ll take the helm. Angling to get more control over how health care dollars are spent, Sutter applied for an HMO license from state regulators in August. The health system hopes to get approval in time to begin sales next fall for coverage in 2014.
