A Message from Barry Smith, Magellan Health Chairman and CEO

As Magellan Health’s chairman and CEO, I’ve had the opportunity to accompany our care team members to the homes and living rooms of our members, many of whom are facing tremendous personal challenges. In these interactions, one thing always stands out: Care.

Our employees care about what they do and care about doing the right things. They care about people. Every day, we create personal connections one on one, and our services touch millions of lives. It is a great honor and a humbling privilege.

For our team members, caring doesn’t end when they leave work. They have always been so active volunteering in and giving back to their communities that we knew we had to formally support them. In 2015, we launched the Magellan Cares Foundation for our company.

Whether it’s grants through the Magellan Cares Foundation, matching the gifts to nonprofits made by our employees, or funding paid time off to volunteer for all Magellan employees, I am very pleased we are actively giving to improve the lives and wellbeing of the communities we serve.

Barry Smith, Chairman & CEO, Magellan Health

From participating in community walks to raising guide dogs, from collecting toys for children at the holidays to serving on gala organizing committees, there are hundreds of examples of our employees giving back. The Foundation is just one more way we make an impact across the country.

The Foundation’s focus includes:

  • National or large-scale health access and quality improvement initiatives.
  • Efforts that help to improve the social supports around a quality healthcare system, such as access to housing, food, clothing or self-improvement opportunities.
  • Local efforts, including legacy initiatives supported by Magellan’s employees.
  • Efforts to support America’s military service members, veterans and wounded warriors.

Whether it’s grants through the Magellan Cares Foundation, matching the gifts to nonprofits made by our employees, or funding paid time off to volunteer for all Magellan employees, I am very pleased we are actively giving to improve the lives and wellbeing of the communities we serve.

Thank you for your support of our community outreach initiatives. Together, we can continue to make a difference and help lead humanity to healthy vibrant lives.
