As convergence of seniors housing and healthcare continues to accelerate, population health expert and healthcare system executive bring valuable new perspective to better serve seniors
ANNAPOLIS, Md. – The National Investment Center for Seniors Housing & Care (NIC), a national, nonprofit organization working to enable access and choice for America’s elders by providing data, analytics, and connections that bring together investors and providers, announced today that it named two healthcare leaders to its Board of Directors: David Nash, MD, MBA, dean of the Jefferson College of Population Health at Jefferson University; and Mike McCurry, executive vice president and chief operating officer (COO) at Mercy Health, a top-rated nonprofit health system headquartered in St. Louis, Mo.
“These appointments are recognition that healthcare services and seniors housing and care are becoming inexorably linked,” said Brad Razook, NIC’s Board chair, and president and managing director of CS Capital Advisors. “On behalf of the entire NIC Board, we are thrilled to have David and Mike join us and know they will make important contributions that advance our mission for many years to come.”
Nash is a renowned population health expert who brings decades of research experience on healthcare delivery and improved patient outcomes to NIC’s Board. Nash is also a member of Humana Inc.’s Board of Directors. As COO of a large health system, McCurry helped expand access to healthcare, create strategic partnerships, and fully integrate data systems to support better care and outcomes.
“It’s an honor to join NIC’s Board of Directors and work with an organization that understands the great potential of healthcare data in creating a brighter future for our seniors,” said Nash. “I look forward to providing strategic direction in healthcare and collaborating with established housing leaders to make access and even greater choice a reality in the marketplace.”
“NIC has been a formidable thought leader on the convergence of housing and healthcare,” said McCurry. “As someone who has made a career out of bringing diverse sets of stakeholders together around common objectives, I am excited to lend my perspective and experience on these issues for NIC. It is an exciting time to be part of this great organization.”
Both Board appointments recognize the importance of healthcare in seniors housing and care and continue NIC’s focus on cross-sector partnerships. Nash and McCurry will provide valuable insights into NIC’s research and events like NIC’s Spring Investment Forum convening leaders from seniors housing, skilled nursing, healthcare, homecare, insurance, finance and care coordination.
Until the appointments, NIC’s Board has been comprised exclusively of those involved in the financing and operations of seniors housing and care. Nash and McCurry’s appointments represent recognition that the future of seniors housing and healthcare services are increasingly linked.
“Thinkers of Nash and McCurry’s caliber reflect where we are heading as an organization—toward a future characterized by innovation, opportunity and change,” said Brian Jurutka, president and CEO of NIC. “We are fortunate to have David and Mike’s fresh perspective.”
Also, recently appointed to the NIC Board were Tom Herzog, CEO of HCP, Inc., and Mercedes Kerr, executive vice president-business development, Welltower Inc.
