The program, which started in New York and Illinois and can now be found in eight states, features a high-touch Nurse Practitioner model of care that has successfully supported treat-in-place programs during the COVID-19 pandemic and resulted in fewer hospitalizations and improved quality of life.
More recently, Joel has expanded his interests in developing a national footprint for Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE), notably by acquiring one of the largest PACE plans in the Northeast and building plans in targeted markets.
In 2019 Joel launched Aurora Health Network, a platform designed to source underutilized nursing homes around the country and form healthy partnerships to transform the level of care at each center. Aurora has a presence in several states, including New Jersey, Maryland, New Hampshire and Florida.
