The Lakeshore Regional Entity Board of Directors has appointed Mr. Allen Jansen to serve as Regional Transition Manager. Mr. Jansen will oversee the Request for Proposal for Managed Care Operations of the LRE. He will also be responsible for the response to the March 22, 2018 MDHHS correspondence while ensuring that the LRE continues to meet its contractual obligations. Mr. Jeffrey Brown has been named CEO in Transition and will be available to consult with Mr. Jansen, as needed.

Mr. Jansen comments, “ I am pleased to join the LRE in the role of Transition Manager. With several years in public sector management roles I intend to bring that experience into this transitional period for the region. The next few weeks will be pivotal as we address the issues identified in the MDHHS communication, move the RFP forward for a managed care entity selection, and deliver services to the citizens of our region who need and deserve quality behavioral healthcare services. I am confident that through combined efforts of the staff at the LRE and the CMH’s in our region we can be successful. Lastly, The LRE and I wish to thank Jeff Brown for all his efforts to get us to this next important step.”
