Chris Corbo, MBA, FACHE, has been appointed executive director of eBrightHealth LLC, the first-of-its-kind alliance in Delaware, formed in 2016 between five leading hospital systems in the First State to improve the quality and affordability of health care for all Delawareans. Partner hospitals in the eBrightHealth alliance are Bayhealth, Beebe Healthcare, Christiana Care Health System, Nanticoke Health Services and Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children.

“Chris is a dynamic leader who is deeply committed to advancing the mission of the eBrightHealth alliance,” said Jeffrey Fried, FACHE, 2018 chair of the Board of Managers of eBrightHealth and president and chief executive officer of Beebe Healthcare. “He will work closely with each of the five eBrightHealth partners, focusing on greater efficiencies, collaboration and a sharing of ideas and best practices to achieve better health outcomes, better patient experience and lower costs.”

Corbo brings more than 20 years of experience in strategic business development and population health, and expertise in the design and administration of employee benefit plans. He comes from Christiana Care Health System where he has been corporate director of benefits and wellness since 2005.

At Christiana Care he has designed and directed the health system’s value-based medical/pharmacy benefits plan for its 19,000 employees and covered dependents. He initiated numerous wellness initiatives, including a health risk assessment and biometrics program, the use of claims data analytics for population health and the state-wide implementation of its award winning Carelink CareNow care management program.

Prior to joining Christiana Care, he worked for Towers Perrin as a benefits consultant where he assisted Fortune 500 companies with benefits administration and design.

Since 2016 Corbo has led the eBrightHealth Benefits and Wellness Committee in the purchase of medical third party administration and pharmacy benefits management services for many of the eBrightHealth partner hospitals. Under his leadership, the renegotiated contracts delivered $40 million in savings over three years.

Corbo earned his B.S. in Economics from Rutgers University and is a graduate of Temple University Fox School of Business MBA Program. He is board certified in health care management as an American College of Healthcare Executives Fellow (FACHE). He also serves on the Human Resources Committee for the United Way of Delaware and has served as a board member for the Greater Philadelphia Business Coalition on Health.
