Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) July 25, 2013
Senior Independence, a leader in innovative, quality services for older adults, has appointed Rich Boyson as its new president.
An influential health-care leader, Boyson will help drive future growth, brand Senior Independence as a strategic partner in health care reform, and continue to maximize a team that delivers excellent clinical care and customer service.
Senior Independence supports seniors with home and community based services, including home care, home health care, hospice, adult day centers, senior centers and wellness clinics. Services are available throughout Ohio and nationally through its iPartner affiliates.
Boyson's strong health-care leadership experience will benefit Senior Independence, a division of Ohio Presbyterian Retirement Services (OPRS), Ohio's largest and most experienced not-for-profit provider of continuing care retirement communities and services.
"Boyson's strengths are with multi-site organizations, technology, and acquisitions and mergers. He's resourceful; he develops systems that deliver consistent, predictable results," says OPRS President/CEO Laurence C. Gumina.
Guiding continuing care (post-acute care) organizations for the past 16 years, he most recently served as the chief financial officer of Therapy Partners, managing financial operations for its Ohio and Illinois divisions. His focuses were business development, operations and finance, and helping the for-profit expand into 18 states.
"I first understand what makes an organization succeed and then work as a team to drive that success," says Boyson. "I'll be listening to all of the Senior Independence leaders and teams and then crafting our future together."
From 2002 to 2007, Boyson directed multiple teams for not-for-profit Laurel Lake Retirement Community in Hudson, Ohio. Prior to 2002, he held senior-level positions at not-for-profit aging services organization Eliza Jennings in Lakewood, Ohio, and Deloitte & Touche LLP, in Cleveland, Ohio.
Boyson holds a bachelor's degree in accounting from Kent State University and earned his certified public accountant (CPA) license in 1995. He serves as the current board chair for Humility of Mary Housing in Fairlawn, Ohio, and as a board member for Laurel Lake Retirement Community.
Boyson lives in Dublin with his wife of almost 17 years, Karen, and his 10-year-old daughter, Natalie. Contact him at 800-686-7800 or rboyson(at)seniorindependence(dot)org.
