John E. Jenrette, MD, executive vice president, Medical Network, has been appointed to the AMGA Board of Directors.

Formerly the American Medical Group Association, AMGA is a trade organization that aims to lead innovative transformation in healthcare through member education and empowerment. More than 175,000 physicians currently practice in its member organizations, delivering care to one in three Americans.

"I am honored to represent Cedars-Sinai on the board of such a valuable organization," said Jenrette. "AMGA is remarkable not only in its reach and scope of expertise, but also in its philosophy. The association’s core values are at the heart of what drives our expanding medical network—the mission to constantly advance high-quality, accessible and patient-centered care."

Jenrette has led Cedars-Sinai’s growing medical network of primary care and specialty physicians since he joined the medical center in 2016. His position on the AMGA board began March 26 of this year.

"With more than 20 years of experience in healthcare delivery and management, Dr. Jenrette is a true champion of efficient, value-based care," said Jerry Penso, MD, MBA, president and chief executive officer at AMGA. "AMGA members continue to lead in the delivery of coordinated, patient-centered, value-driven care. At this time of transformation in healthcare, we look forward to Dr. Jenrette’s expertise, insights and contributions to our board."
