Patrick Hughes has served as president and CEO of Fallon Community Health Plan since February 2010, replacing Eric Schultz, who left for Harvard Pilgrim Health Plan, where he is now president and CEO. He joined Fallon in 2007 as senior vice president and chief marketing and sales officer. That same year, he assumed extensive responsibility for all health-plan operations in the new role of division president. Under his leadership, Fallon membership grew to its highest level in the company’s history. A 10-year veteran of the National Football League, Hughes continues to foster a deep appreciation and respect for teamwork. He also credits his experience as a linebacker with the New York Giants (1970-1976) and the New Orleans Saints (1977-1979) for helping him to develop a keen ability to quickly identify and respond to challenges and opportunities in his present-day field of play: today’s dynamic health-care market and environment.
