SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Redirect Health’s Medical Director and Co-founder Dr. Janice Johnston, MD, took home top honors last week at Az Business Magazine’s 10th-annual Healthcare Leadership Awards, a highly regarded awards program honoring the people who bring excellence and innovation to Arizona’s healthcare sector.
Dr. Johnston joins an elite group of women, men and institutions credited with making a difference in medical care worldwide. The award honors her work in creating a new model of care delivery, providing employers with truly affordable healthcare plans, and ultimately transforming the healthcare industry.
“I am honored and humbled to be counted among Arizona’s top physicians and medical executives,” said Dr. Johnston. “Everyone at Redirect Health shares in the honor, because our work is truly a team effort. Winning the HCLA is proof that there’s a real appetite for our unrelenting efforts to make healthcare simple, transparent and affordable – and to remove all of the barriers and waste built into traditional healthcare insurance plans.”
Dr. Johnston and husband, Dr. David Berg, founded Arrowhead Health Centers in 1997 with the hope of realizing a new vision for healthcare – one that put the patient first, housed numerous practices and specialties under one roof, and eliminated administrative inefficiencies that drive up costs. Over the next two decades, their vision came to life, and soon they realized their healthcare approach could benefit business owners across the country.
In 2013, with co-founder Paul Johnson, they founded Redirect Health to scale the unique care model developed and honed at Arrowhead.
Today, Redirect Health makes healthcare easy and affordable for individuals and businesses nationwide. The company’s flagship plan, EverydayCare™, provides high-quality, high-value healthcare as well as one-on-one guidance to help members navigate the healthcare industry and secure quality care at the best price. The product, available to businesses, offers low premiums, allows members to choose any primary care doctor, and includes no copays or deductibles. The company’s individual plan, iEverydayCARE™, is now piloting in Maricopa County, Ariz.
