Brent Nash joins innovative home health leader as it continues to expand access to high-quality care.

Elara Caring, the only full-scale, multi-state home health provider of clinical and personalized services across the patient continuum, announced the addition of Brent Nash as Chief Development Officer, a new executive role specifically created to further maximize the provider’s growth strategy and meet the nation’s escalating home health needs.

Elara’s mission has long been to expand access to high-quality, compassionate home-based care wherever patients and clients call home. Over the past 12 months, it has exceeded a range of ambitious growth milestones, building capacities in key regions and reaching a broader cross-section of patient populations.

“At Elara, we’re utilizing a world-class value-based care model and cutting-edge technologies to scale the delivery of home-based care, improving outcomes for patients, referrers and payers,” said Scott Powers, CEO and Chairman of Elara. “With this momentum, we’re attracting highly experienced and passionate professionals like Brent who will further build on our successes and, bigger picture, drive transformation across the home health industry.”

Mr. Nash previously served as Vice President, Development at healthcare delivery organization Lifepoint Health. Before that, he led development, mergers & acquisitions, and payor relations for behavioral health provider Springstone – where he was Chief Development Officer of its management company, U.S. Behavioral Partners. Mr. Nash also worked in Corporate Development at Humana and began his career in investment banking and private equity at Goldman Sachs and Genstar Capital.

“I am thrilled to be part of the remarkable Elara team which is delivering essential care through innovative home-based care models,” said Mr. Nash. “I look forward to driving the development and growth of the services Elara provides, one of the few opportunities I’ve seen in my career where meeting patient needs also drives systemic value.” In April 2023, Elara completed the purchase of a 50-person, privately owned skilled home healthcare provider in Warwick, Rhode Island. Also, on October 2, it closed on its acquisition of a 35-person, privately owned skilled home health provider in Huntley, Illinois. More acquisitions are anticipated in the months ahead.

Elara Caring is one of the nation’s leading providers of home-based care, offering Skilled Home Health, Hospice, Personal Care Services, Behavioral Health, and Palliative Care.

The Elara Caring mission is to deliver exceptional, personalized health care services wherever patients call home.
