Munich Health North America, a business segment of Munich Re, has appointed Tom Warnes as chief clinical and operating officer, effective immediately.

The appointment follows the recent move of Munich Health North America’s headquarters to Minnesota, where Warnes will be based.

Warnes has 25 years’ experience in healthcare, having most recently held the position of chief clinical officer of Prominence Health. Here he led the strategy and execution of population health management and all aspects of medical management for health plan and employer programs.

Prior to this, he held roles of progressive responsibility with organizations including Avalon Healthcare Solutions, CareCentrix, WellCare Health Plans, Priority Health, and Grand Valley Health Plan.

“Tom’s experience and leadership will greatly advance our success as a healthcare operator and industry leader in clinical management,” said Juan Serrano, president and chief executive officer of Munich Health North America.

“This applies especially to the care and management of high risk populations which is a crucial factor for improved patient outcomes and also for our clients’ results.”

Warnes added: “This is a great and unique opportunity. Munich Health has the depth and resources to be a key player in the US health market. I look forward to growing this business, and improving patient outcomes and how high risk, high cost care is coordinated and managed.”
