Medical Home Network Appoints Dr. Abigail DeVries as Medical Director


Medical Home Network (MHN) has appointed Dr. Abigail G. DeVries as its Market Medical Director. DeVries’ expertise in patient-centered managed care plans and her passion for reducing health disparities closely aligns with MHN’s mission to transform care and build healthier communities in the safety net.

“We are thrilled to have Dr. DeVries join our team. Her experience as a primary care physician who has focused her career on making health care accessible and affordable to all is an incredible asset and complement to MHN as we expand our whole person model of care to new markets,” said Cheryl Lulias, MHN president and CEO.

DeVries will work on care transformation in five states under ACO REACH, Medicare’s new value-based model for fee-for-service care. The new model is focused on advancing equity, access, and community health to bring the benefits of accountable care to underserved communities. MHN’s new entity, Medical Home Network REACH ACO, will partner with FQHCs nationwide to organize them for success under value-based care.

Previously, DeVries served as a primary care physician and chief medical officer at Piedmont Health Services in North Carolina. Through her work with under-resourced populations, she gained deep experience in how to improve patient care in a results-based, cost-effective manner.
