Eric Beane

VP of Regulatory and Government Affairs

Eric comes to Unite Us with a demonstrated record of system change and a passion for improving people’s lives. Most recently, he served as Secretary of Health & Human Services in Rhode Island where he prioritized improving access to health care, controlling costs, and addressing the addiction and overdose crisis. He previously served as Chief Operating Officer for the State of Rhode Island and as Deputy Chief of Staff for the Governor of Maryland. Earlier in his career, he practiced as a trial attorney for the Federal Programs Branch of the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington, DC. Eric is excited to join a dynamic company that recognizes that building healthier communities requires collaboration between our health system and social service organizations. Outside of work, Eric enjoys traveling, hiking and reading (a mix of history and fiction).
