Joe began his professional career in 1987 with Healthcare Services Group, the country’s largest publicly-traded provider of contract housekeeping, laundry, linen, and food services to the Long Term Care community. After four years with HCSG, Joe founded, and personally funded Summit Services, a direct competitor to Healthcare Services Group.
Joe skillfully developed Summit into a market leader, which serviced over 450 long-term care facilities in 32 states, and employed nearly 5,000 people. Summit Services was subsequently sold to Healthcare Services Group in 2007 for ten (10) times earnings.
In 2007, Joe joined West River Services to leverage his twenty (20) years of experience in the healthcare industry to explore and develop related business opportunities in the burgeoning patient-care space. Among his successes to date are:
West River Care was originally created to provide end-of-life services, with a focus on hospice care. The company grew from zero to $6 million in revenue in less than three years, while maintaining visibility along the way. The company was sold in December of 2009 to a large regional provider for six (6) times earnings.
West River Pharmacy provided closed-door pharmaceutical services to the long-term care industry, servicing all of New England and part of New York. The firm has grown from zero to over $30 million in revenue in three years. Another development was a joint-venture called West River Supply, which provided medical supplies to the long-term care industry.
