ANNAPOLIS – Maulik S. Joshi, Dr.P.H., president & CEO of Meritus Health, was officially appointed July 1 as a member of the Maryland Community Health Resource Commission (CHRC) by Maryland Governor Larry Hogan.

Joshi will serve a four-year term on the Maryland CHRC, an independent group operating within the Maryland Department of Health, created specifically to expand access to health care services in underserved communities in the state. Since its inception in 2005, the CHRC has awarded more than $75 million in grants to support programs that serve nearly 500,000 low-income individuals with complex health and social service needs.

“We are excited that Maulik Joshi is joining the CHRC, as he comes highly recommended,” says Elizabeth Chung, chair of the commission. “I am looking forward to working with him.”

Joshi is a seasoned health care executive with more than 27 years of experience on both the national and state level. He has been with Meritus Health since the fall of 2019 and previously served as executive vice president of integrated care delivery and chief operating officer at Anne Arundel Health System in Annapolis. Joshi was the associate executive vice president of the American Hospital Association for eight years and president of the AHA’s Health Research & Educational Trust. He holds both a doctorate in public health and a master’s degree in health services administration from the University of Michigan.

“The CHRC will be heavily relying on Dr. Joshi’s expertise,” says Mark Luckner, executive director of the commission. “We anticipate that he will help build on the group’s ongoing efforts to support innovative hospital-community partnerships that are sustainable.”
