CareMax, Inc. (“CareMax”) (NASDAQ: CMAX; CMAXW), a leading technology-enabled provider of value-based care to seniors, today announced the appointment of Mr. Jose R. Rodriguez as Chair of CareMax’s board of directors, to succeed Mr. Richard A. Barasch, who has resigned from the Board. Mr. Rodriguez has served as a member of CareMax’s board of directors since June 2021 and previously served as CareMax’s Lead Independent Director. Mr. Barasch will continue to serve as an advisor to CareMax’s board of directors.

“We are excited that Jose has agreed to lead CareMax’s board of directors as we start our first full year as a public company. The board and I believe Jose’s recognized leadership in corporate governance, together with his experience running and auditing large, complex organizations, including payors, providers and Medicare Advantage arrangements, and serving on the board of directors and as lead director of KPMG U.S. and Americas, will serve the company well in his expanded role as Chair,” said Carlos de Solo, CEO of CareMax. “We appreciate Richard’s immeasurable contributions to CareMax’s transition to a public company, and his service as Executive Chair since the business combination. I believe we have laid the groundwork for CareMax to succeed in 2022, having grown to more than 32,000 Medicare Advantage members as of the end of 2021.”

“I am confident that the leadership team at CareMax has positioned itself to grow the company’s value-based business model and I am honored to have been chosen to lead the board during this next chapter for CareMax,” said Mr. Rodriguez. “I am grateful for Richard’s help in bringing CareMax to the public markets and am excited to continue to build upon the progress he has made.”

“I continue to believe that CareMax’s model of value-based care and chronic disease management is an effective way to lower healthcare costs and improve patient outcomes in Medicare Advantage, especially for dual eligible beneficiaries and those with chronic conditions,” said Mr. Barasch. “I am proud of the work that CareMax has done for these underserved communities and believe that the company has significant opportunities ahead of it.”
