From Humble Beginnings

Pursuing A Mission Centene's commitment to transforming communities traces back to the company's foundation. As the founder of a single health plan in Milwaukee, Elizabeth "Betty" Brinn wanted to help people who were falling between the cracks of the healthcare system. She also saw the new health plan as a way to address unemployment among economically challenged women in the community, by hiring women who were first-time employees, or were returning to the workplace.
