Englewood Health appoints EVP of legal affairs and chief legal officer

Englewood Health on Thursday said it appointed Matthew Amodeo as its new executive vice president of legal affairs and chief legal officer.

Amodeo has served as Englewood’s external legal counsel since 2009, while a partner with law firm Faegre Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP. During that time, he has helped guide Englewood Health on its growth strategy, integration of the physician network and managed care contracting, among other efforts.

“It is with great pleasure we officially welcome Matt as in-house counsel for Englewood Health,” Warren Geller, CEO and president of Englewood Health, said. “As we continue to grow, Matt’s extensive health law background, combined with his years of service as outside counsel for Englewood, make him a valuable addition to our health system family.”

In his new role, Amodeo will plan and lead all legal activities of the health system, overseeing in-house counsel and coordinating activities of outside counsel, ensuring all are in alignment with Englewood Health’s mission, values and goals.
