Jeff Cook serves as CEO of the Texas Health Aetna joint venture. Texas Health Aetna is the result of a partnership between Texas Health Resources and Aetna. This partnership combines Texas Health’s high quality, local providers and delivery systems with Aetna’s health plan experience, care management, analytical insights and health information technology. This partnership is the first and only joint venture between a national insurer and a provider in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
The new partnership will feature the Southwestern Health Resources network as its core, which includes more than 500 physicians in Texas Health’s employed physician group, Texas Health Physicians Group (THPG), Texas Health’s 69 outpatient facilities that include surgery centers, fitness centers, imaging centers and more than 250 other community access points. Its hospitals include 16 acute-care facilities, along with six short-stay, one transitional care and two rehabilitation hospitals.
In 2016 Chris Rawley, while visiting a farm investment in Central America, conceived the idea of building a crowdfunding platform to streamline agriculture investment. He soon founded Harvest Returns to bring that vision to reality.
Headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, Harvest Returns, LLC is a financial technology company created in 2016 by two combat veterans to bring agricultural producers together with investors. Through democratizing the agriculture investment process with an equity partnership format, the online platform provides curated, diversified offerings of farm, ranch and timberland to accredited investors.
As a Captain in the United States Navy Reserve, Chris is also the Commanding Officer of a unit focused on building maritime security partnerships in the piracy-plagued Gulf of Guinea.
