A vice president at St. Charles Health System will head up Governor-Elect Kitzhaber’s health policies. Mike Bonetto has been at St. Charles for a couple years, but has decided to take the full time job as a Senior Policy Advisor for Kitzhaber in Salem. Bonetto knows the job will be challenging, but believes it will provide an opportunity to improve healthcare. “From state budget perspective, a State budget perspective, the State Medicaid Program, the Oregon Health Plan, has some financial difficulties ahead of it. So, how do we do this so that really tries to hold people harmless, but the same time gets us out of our current inefficient system.”  Bonetto says he's met with Kitzhaber several times and is impressed with his grasp of the budget. He’ll start the Senior Advisor job after the first of the year.
