Governance Board

Governance Board

Magellan of Virginia is firmly committed to building a community-driven behavioral health system in the Commonwealth that is focused on recovery and resilience and is accountable for superior program outcomes. To deliver on that promise, Magellan established a Governance Board to offer community and provider stakeholders a true voice and shared decision-making authority in shaping the vision, strategy, planning and oversight of the statewide program.
