Borrego Health, a federally qualified health center with more than 40 California locations, made several changes to its leadership team in a sustainability push, the organization announced June 15. 

The board of Borrego Health said it has named a new leadership team, eliminated an undisclosed number of leadership roles and realigned a significant number of administrative positions not directly related to patient care. 

In addition to the leadership changes, the operator of federally qualified health centers will close its assisted living facility on June 30 and transfer operations of its childcare center to another organization this summer. 

"Our goal is to continue to move forward with a leaner, more transparent and quality driven organization focused on our core patient care services," said Edgar Bulloch, MD, Borrego Health's interim CEO. "The changes we're announcing today are part of our ongoing commitment to our patients, communities and our valued employees to operate and lead Borrego in a fiscally responsible manner."

The new leadership team includes: Corina Velasquez, COO; Sergio Bautista, interim CFO; Victor Madero, chief health plan officer; and Jorge Cervantes, MD, interim chief clinical officer. Dr. Bulloch will continue to serve as interim CEO.

"With these changes will come more streamlined operations at the clinical level for better, more efficient delivery of quality healthcare. Our new leaner leadership structure will empower our leaders with the ability to make changes needed at the clinical level to ensure that every clinic in our organization runs as efficiently and safely as possible with an emphasis on value-based care," Dr. Bulloch said.
