Boston Senior Home Care announced that its Board of Directors has appointed Margaret Hogan as chief executive officer. Hogan has a proven track-record in the health and human services sectors and is a well-known strategic leader, having undertaken a number of senior level roles. She most recently served as vice president of external relations for Home Health Foundation, which includes Home Health VNA, Merrimack Valley Hospice and Home Care, Inc., one of the largest and most respected home care agencies in Massachusetts. In this role she has overseen the development and implementation of strategic, agency-wide programs that advance and promote patient care services while influencing governance initiatives impacting the organization’s long term sustainability.
Before joining Home Health Foundation, Hogan served as Chief Operations Officer for the National Patient Safety Foundation, Executive Director for the New England Healthcare Assembly, and Director of Education and Marketing for the Massachusetts Hospital Association. Currently, she is Board President for MA Women’s Political Caucus and President of the Board for L’Arche North.
According to Paul K. Wong, BSHC board president, “Meg is a seasoned executive with proven leadership experience and the knowledge necessary to advance Boston Senior Home Care’s strategic initiatives. Her background in strategic planning, financial and operations management, and philanthropy as well as staff and board leadership are key, as we seek to increase our capacity to meet current and future needs for our growing elderly population.”
“I’m honored to be chosen to lead Boston Senior Home Care and am deeply committed to delivering on the mission,” said Hogan. “My past experience in leading nonprofit healthcare organizations, as an employee and board member, has helped me to become a skilled advocate and leader for those who want to age in place and stay independent at home.”
Boston Senior Home Care is dedicated to ensuring that culturally diverse elders and others, particularly those of limited means, can remain in their homes or in other supportive settings with dignity and independence.
