ValueHealth, LLC, a nationally recognized, tech-enabled, data-driven healthcare services company with a surgical digital platform, is pleased to announce that ValueHealth President Don Bisbee has been named CEO of the company, effective January 1, 2021.

As the industry’s leading transformational, digital, value-based surgical company, ValueHealth is poised to quadruple in five years. The strategic appointment of Bisbee to CEO positions the company to successfully scale at a rapid pace. “I’m excited, enthusiastic, and confident to announce that Don Bisbee will be my successor as Chief Executive Officer,” said Tasset. “Under Don’s leadership, this company will become everything it has been preparing for since our journey began 25 years ago. Don is an amazing and talented leader who possesses a great combination of knowledge, experience, drive, and determination, as well as understanding and compassion.”
“I joined ValueHealth because the company and its leadership share my commitment to value-based care as the future of healthcare,” said Bisbee. “It is truly a front-to-back change agent for the transition to value-based care. As CEO, my focus will be on improving and expanding the company’s footprint through the development of Value Networks that will create geographic adequacy and substantial value to meet the needs of the employers, payors, and consumers across the country.”
Under Bisbee’s leadership as President, the company expanded several key initiatives in 2020, including the addition of five new health system joint ventures, the launch of nationwide benefit consultant relationships, and the launch of two new hyperspecialty programs to address employers’ needs for value-based surgical care in cardiology and bariatrics.
