Paul has over 30 years of experience in the health care industry. He has dedicated the last 18years of work to skilled and post-acute care facilities. Paul has held senior management positions with companies with post-acute care facilities nationwide (500 facilities; 39,000 beds) and understands the unique challenges that skilled and post-acute care facilities face.
He began his health care career working as an orderly in a nursing home. He later obtained his nursing degree and worked for a number of years in cardiac care, critical care (neuro and cardiac), neonatology, emergency services, and community health for various health care providers. Paul returned to skilled nursing as a sub-acute consultant for Health Care & Retirement Corporation (HCR) in 1995. Following a merger between HCR and ManorCare Health Services in 1999, he assumed a senior management role with oversight of all post-acute clinical operations for the company.
Paul had an opportunity to return to Texas and continue his passion for post-acute care, where he joined Touchstone Communities. “I am deeply dedicated to creating a culture open to change and inspired to raise the bar in clinical expertise for the communities in which I serve.” We are certainly pleased to have Paul on our leadership team.
