El Paso Health CEO to Lead Statewide Health Plans Board

Officials with the Texas Association of Community Health Plans (TACHP) this week announced that Frank J. Dominguez, President and CEO of El Paso Health, has been appointed Chairman of the Board of the organization.

As 2018 Vice-Chair, Dominguez assisted in directing a membership of 12 Texas-based companies that collectively serve over 2 million Texans and who are committed to supporting and improving the health needs of people living at low to moderate incomes.

In his new role, he will continue to promote the advantages of locally established health plans in member and provider satisfaction, to maintain connection to community resources important for low-income populations, and to improve the quality of healthcare.

“Frank will step in as TACHP chair with the unanimous support of the community health plans in Texas. He is passionate about his work on behalf of Texans needing healthcare and is also a successful businessman known for his savvy with running an efficient and quality operation,” said Kay Ghahremani, President and CEO of Texas Association of Community Health Plans.  “Frank’s combination of heart and innovation has caught the eye of Texas policymakers. TACHP is fortunate that Frank has agreed to take on this important role.”

“We are proud of the work that Frank does at the state level.  We look forward to watching him continue to help Texans improve their health in this new role with TACHP,” said Steve DeGroat, Board Chairman of El Paso Health.

“Frank is the ideal leader to assume this tremendous responsibility,” said Jacob Cintron, President and CEO, University Medical Center of El Paso.  “He has proven time and again that his expertise is essential to the success of our health plans.  It gives all of us in El Paso a real sense of pride that his expertise will now benefit the rest of our state.”
