Vice President, Behavioral Health,
MVP Health Care
Dr. Judith Feld, Vice President of Behavioral Health, spent her early career practicing psychiatry in a variety of clinical settings—including outpatient facilities, mental health clinics, nursing homes, and private practice. Throughout, she struggled to ensure that patients with mental illness were receiving care not just for their mental health needs, but also for their physical health—and for them to continue to seek health care despite longstanding cultural stigma toward the treatment of mental health conditions. These concerns led Judith to alter her career path with the goal of creating change in the way behavioral health care is delivered, integrating patient care through a biopsychosocial approach. At MVP, she is leading our organization’s commitment to taking a holistic approach to both the physical and mental well-being of our members with behavioral health diagnoses—putting the head back on the body, so to speak—such that they can live their happiest, healthiest lives.
