Mr. Sampson said, “I am grateful to the Board for the opportunity to lead this purpose-driven organization as we embark on the next phase of Modivcare’s transformation. As we continue to align our people, processes, and technology as one Modivcare, I am committed to driving the organization to new heights of performance, where we recognize that each member has a unique set of needs and their experience is our number one priority. Our supportive care platform directly addresses critical social determinants of health and positions us to meaningfully improve access to care and health outcomes. I look forward to continuing to serve the Company in my new role, supporting our team members, customers, and members who entrust us with making connections to care.”
