Claus, '86 Named General Counsel of IU Health
Mary Beth Claus, '86, has returned to Indiana to serve as General Counsel of Indiana University Health.
Claus spent the last three and a half years at the Cleveland Clinic, where she served as the deputy chief legal officer and director of health care regulatory matters, overseeing all of the medical center’s regulatory and legal compliance matters. Prior to that, she was a partner at Faegre Baker Daniels. Her career also includes several years spent managing the healthcare practice group as a partner at what was then Bingham Summers Welsh & Spilman, and two years working as an operational and executive liaison for former Indiana Governor Evan Bayh, advising him during the Medicaid budget overhaul of 1992.
Claus is only the second person to serve in the General Counsel position at IU Health, taking over from Norman Tabler, who retired in December 2012 after 16 years in the job. In her new role, Claus will direct the statewide regulatory, internal audit, corporate compliance and insurance operations departments.
