LANSING, Mich. – With the year-end 2015 retirement of Michigan Primary Care Consortium (MPCC) Executive Director Jeffrey D. Brasie, the Consortium’s board has announced the appointment of Drew Murray, M.A., M.P.P., as the incoming Executive Director. Murray will assume Consortium leadership effective Monday, January 4, 2016.

Murray was nominated for this position by the Michigan Health Council (MHC), which was recently awarded a management contract for the MPCC. The MHC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization near Lansing dedicated to building health professional capacity by offering innovative products and services across six domains of work.

Consortium Board Chair, Craig Magnatta, D.O. commented, “Drew will most certainly ensure the Consortium continues to be responsive to the membership and Michigan’s growing primary care delivery needs.”

For the past four years Drew has worked as the Director of Innovation and Impact at the Michigan Health Council. He has in-depth and relevant expertise within higher education and has been working with practitioners in Grand Rapids, Detroit, Flint and several other areas across the state to find ways to promote best practices related to interprofessional collaboration.

“Drew offers the Consortium a wealth of leadership and results-oriented enthusiasm which will indeed support our mission, vision, and core values”, said Brasie.

Murray holds bachelor’s degrees from the University of Mary Washington, as well as master’s degrees in higher education administration and public policy from the University of Michigan.

In a recent statement, Murray said “I look forward to engaging all members and related stakeholder groups on their primary care priorities and working every day to make sure the Consortium focuses its resources on the most pressing issues.”
