PORTLAND, Ore., Aug. 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- AllMed Healthcare Management is pleased to announce today the promotion of Maridy McGinnis to president and CEO. McGinnis has served as chief operating officer of AllMed since October 2018, overseeing the day-to-day management of the company. She replaces Andrew Rowe, who will remain as executive chairman.

"I am very grateful to have served as CEO for so many years, and for being part of building an amazing team that is deeply committed to improving health care," Rowe said. "Over the last three years, Maridy's contributions to AllMed's successful growth and to building a strong culture have been remarkable. This is an exciting opportunity to transition leadership to someone who is respected by all and who has proven herself capable of leading the company."
