leadership that cares
Administrator, Chief Executive Officer
Jim has over 25 years of operating experience at multi-million dollar healthcare organizations. He is an award-winning executive with a solid history of success in improving patient services and overall efficiency. Jim acquired and started several healthcare-related companies beginning in 2005. His first was the acquisition and substantial renovation of East Bank Center, which has grown exponentially in terms of revenue as well as health care services. Transitions Hospice was formed in 2007, which began as a small, Rockford, IL based hospice which has grown tremendously providing the full scope of hospice services in Northern and Central Illinois. In addition, the related companies also provide an array of healthcare services including physical, occupational, and speech rehabilitation, nurse practitioner, and durable medical equipment. Jim began with a simple yet understated philosophy, “keep people at home,” and has spent the last ten years making this a reality. Prior to starting these organizations, Jim was with Alden Management Services and Charter Hospital of Lafayette, both multi-million dollar healthcare organizations. He led the seamless start-up and service delivery strategy of eight ancillary companies. Additionally, Jim developed and executed innovative administrative and marketing strategies for Alden. He was rapidly promoted to positions of increasing responsibility with the Facility Operations Division of Alden Management Services, a $500 million long-term healthcare provider, culminating into Vice President of Operations. In this role, he directed all aspects of operations in 30 facilities comprising 4,600 beds. Jim received his bachelors degree in Healthcare Administration from Purdue University.
