FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 04, 2023
Vicki Loner has accepted a position with a national healthcare consulting firm and will transition out of her role as CEO of OneCare Vermont (OneCare) at the end of May.
“Serving as OneCare’s CEO has been one of the most interesting and challenging jobs of my life and I am proud to have made contributions to making Vermont’s health care system even better for patients and families,” said Vicki Loner. “Our efforts to unify a fragmented health care system, measure and improve quality, and transition to value-based care have all improved Vermont’s health care system. I am excited about the opportunity to apply the innovative health care reform efforts happening in Vermont to health care systems nationwide.”
OneCare is a Vermont owned and operated accountable care organization (ACO) that is working to move our health care system towards a more affordable, coordinated model focused on delivering the best care for Vermonters.
OneCare Board of Managers Chair Anya Rader Wallack praised Loner’s leadership, saying, “Under Vicki, OneCare has worked to improve Vermont’s health care system in numerous ways: by supporting providers to improve their patients’ health; increasing access to preventative care, and; paying for value and health outcomes rather than avoidable services, such as tests and operations.” Wallack continued, “Under Vicki’s leadership, we have implemented some of the most advanced payment reforms in the country. Vicki will be missed, but we will continue this important work to keep Vermonters healthy and reduce growth in health care spending.”
Loner has served as OneCare’s CEO since 2019 and has held leadership positions at the organization since 2013. Wallack said OneCare’s board of managers will meet in May to appoint an interim leader and develop a replacement strategy.
