Ghita Worcester’s strategic guidance and personal values have been at the heart of UCare since its founding in 1984, when she was policy director for the group of physicians who started the organization. Since then, she has served in a wide range of leadership positions at UCare and in the broader Minnesota health care community. She is an eloquent advocate for health insurers’ special duty to bring
care within reach for the most vulnerable among us. From Ghita’s perspective, the health care of the future will return to the roots of managed care. “Health maintenance organizations,” she says, “take care of health, whole health.”
