A new chief medical officer has been appointed for a healthcare agency which serves more than Medi-Cal recipients in Ventura County.
Dr. Nancy Wharfield is now overseeing the Gold Coast Health Plan’s medical programs. She fills the vacancy created by the retirement of Dr. C. Albert Reeves, who retired last month. Wharfield has been serving as the plan’s Associate Chief Medical Officer.
Gold Coast manages health care services for more than 200,000 Medi-Cal recipients in Ventura County.
