Harbin to oversee behavioral health unit

Maryland Watch

March 06, 1998

Dr. Henry T. Harbin, president and chief executive officer of Green Spring Health Services in Columbia, will become CEO of the managed behavioral health care division of Green Spring's parent, Magellan Health Services, the company announced.

Harbin's move is part of a reorganization to provide management over Green Spring and two other behavioral managed care companies Magellan has acquired, Human Affairs International and Merit Behavioral Care.

The consolidated operation will be based in Columbia, but will have little impact on employment there, now about 800, Harbin said. He said, however, he expects continued steady growth in headquarters staffing as the company grows.

Providing HMO-like functions for mental health, the consolidated company will have annual revenue of $1.3 billion and manage the care of 58 million people.

Also, Atlanta-based Magellan announced yesterday that it had agreed to sell two of its units for a total of $310 million, completing its transformation from an operator of mental hospitals to one offering mental health insurance and care plans.
