Phil Wright is retiring after more than 25 years as president/CEO of the Health Plan of the Upper Ohio Valley.

Wright's retirement takes effect June 30. A search for his successor will begin immediately.

During his tenure, the company expanded into every county of West Virginia and his oversight was instrumental in the company's expansion into Northeast Ohio. The Health Plan's membership has grown to 370,000 during Wright's tenure.

"Phil Wright provided great leadership for the organization," said John D. Holloway, M.D., chairman of the board. "The board of directors is grateful for Mr. Wright's leadership and appreciates what he has done for the Health Plan and its membership."

The Health Plan, a not-for-profit organization established in 1979, provides high quality, comprehensive and cost-effective health care to residents in Ohio and West Virginia.

The Health Plan offers a complete line of managed-care products and services designed to provide clients with innovative health care benefits at a reasonable cost.
