GOSHEN -

Goshen Health has selected Dan Nafziger as chief medical officer of Goshen Hospital. Nafziger, who currently serves as health officer of Elkhart County, will succeed Larry Allen, who is moving to his new position as chief physician executive with Goshen Health.

The health system say the leadership changes will begin in January. In his new role, Allen will be focus on population health strategies such as managed care, integrating patient-centered medical homes and collaborating with employers and insurance plans to share risk, according to Goshen Health.

"Controlling health costs is a national crisis – that’s one of the messages of health care reform," Allen said in a news release. "I love working in population health with the aim of providing better care, better health and lower costs. Helping people stay healthy before they get a disease is a very rewarding part of our mission."
