“Profile: Christopher Perna,” by Elizabeth Leis Newman, McKnight’s Long Term Care News

“Perna spent 25 years in a successful career in the insurance industry in executive roles, including moving to Rochester, NY, in 1999 to head MedAmerica. . . . Moving to Eden came after a hiatus from the insurance industry, Perna says, when he wasn’t sure what he wanted to do next. After having a conversation with Eden Alternative founder Bill Thomas, M.D., Perna accepted the group’s role of president and CEO in 2010. Thomas says he knew Perna was right because ‘he was able to reconcile the competing demands of the head and the heart.”

LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):
Remember Chris Perna of MedAmerica? He’s still in long-term care, though more on the delivery side these days, and doing well according to this profile. We wish him the best.
