New Chair of the RotaCare Pittsburg Advisory Council
After years of dedicated service to the foundation of the RotaCare Pittsburg Free Medical Clinic at St. Vincent de Paul, our first and only Advisory Council Chair – Steve Polcyn – decided to retire and hand over the position to a successor. Though saddened by Steve’s departure, we are very pleased to announce that Dr. Tony Van Goor has agreed to be our next Chair of the RotaCare Pittsburg Advisory Council, effective March 2016. Tony has an extensive background in the medical profession and will bring a wealth of knowledge, experience, leadership and new ideas to the Advisory Council. Additionally, he has served as a member of the Advisory Council for the past year, and has served as a volunteer provider at the Clinic.
Tony is presently the Senior Medical Director for Policy and Technology Assessment for Blue Shield of California (BSC). In this position, he is responsible for the development and continuous updating of over 500 medical policies governing all aspects of health care delivery for over 3.9 million plan beneficiaries, and for the assessment and innovative application of new technologies to BSC’s benefit structure. He chairs both the BSC Medical Policy and the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committees. He previously served as the Regional Medical Director of the California Central Valley Region (Region 3) for Health Net of California, Inc., and also as the Medical Director of Pharmaceutical Services for Health Net. Prior to that, he was the Medical Director, Executive Vice-President and Staff Internist for the Sutter Delta Medical Group in Antioch.
Tony is a board-certified specialist in Internal Medicine, who trained at the Sanford School of Medicine at the University of South Dakota and at David Grant USAF Medical Center. He received his Master’s degree in Medical Management from Tulane University in New Orleans in 2005. Dr. Van Goor is a Certified Physician Executive by the Certifying Commission on Medical Management and is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians. Tony is a decorated military veteran, having served in the United States Air Force for over 23 years on active duty and 5 years in reserve, retiring honorably as a senior Colonel in 2006. He served as an emergency physician, flight surgeon, internist, medical group chief of staff, and over his final eight years in service he held numerous squadron and group commands. He is a recipient of the Air Force Legion of Merit and five Meritorious Service Medals.
A commercial and public radio announcer and program director for ten years before his entry to medical school, Tony enjoys vocal performance. He has a long history of service as a liturgical cantor for numerous Catholic parishes and as a choral performer with two opera companies. We are pleased to have Dr. Tony Van Goor join us in his new role at the Clinic, and we wish him success as he assumes the chairmanship of the RotaCare Pittsburg Advisory Council.
