Our Current Engagements



Aviva Senior Life
Chief Operating Officer

The Opportunity

Aviva Senior Life, a Senior Living Community in Sarasota, FL associated with the Association of Jewish Aging Services, seeks a Chief Operating Officer to be part of the team that will drive its aggressive growth plans in the coming years. This is an opportunity to assume a highly visible position reporting directly to the CEO of a successful and uniquely well-positioned organization that is poised for significant growth. The Chief Operating Officer (COO) is a newly created position that will be a key driver of the organization’s growth plans.

 

The Organization

Founded in 1993, Aviva Senior Life (Aviva) is a primarily Jewish retirement community spread over 26 acres on a beautiful campus located central to many amenities. Originally developed by the Sarasota-Manatee Jewish Housing Council, Aviva offers the very best to seniors in:

  • Independent Living (the 187-unit Kobernick House)
  • Assisted Living (the 70-unit Anchin Pavilion, half of which is committed to memory care)
  • Nursing/Rehabilitation care (the 45 bed Benderson Skilled Nursing & Rehab Facility)
  • Outpatient Rehabilitation
  • Aviva 4 Life, an integrated wellness program for Seniors

Aviva enjoys a stellar reputation in the profession and with the communities it serves. It has strong support from the Sarasota/Bradenton area Jewish Community, which numbers between 18,000 and 20,000. Its culture embodies excellence and customer service, and a warm, familial setting. Most of the residents are thrilled to reside at Aviva. Its mission-driven culture is committed to quality and care of its residents, and features a “scholarship” program that covers the costs for long term residents whose assets become depleted; Aviva does not turn out to the street residents who run out of money. See www.avivaseniorlife.org.

 

A free-standing, independent, not-for-profit organization with annual revenue of about $18 million, Aviva has operated at a surplus for several consecutive years and expects to continue doing so.  Occupancy continues to be high, reflecting ongoing market need and supporting their growth plans. Aviva enjoys having a sizable endowment through its Foundation, which is primarily used to fund capital improvements. The organization has undergone significant physical renewal and upgrade in recent years, and more is scheduled.  Aviva also has its own on-site pharmacy, and employs its own full time Rabbi.  The board of Aviva is highly engaged, sophisticated, and strategic.

 

There are several unique strengths to Aviva’s current market position:

  • It is the only Jewish senior housing/skilled nursing facility in a community providing significant and generous Jewish support;
  • Located in central Sarasota, Aviva is in a rapidly growing, upscale community that is the epicenter of cultural and recreational activities for primarily affluent retirees;
  • It is the only senior care organization of its type in the area operating under arental business model, not requiring residents to make significant investments to live there;
  • The Sarasota area is one of the most rapidly “graying” areas in the country, providing Aviva with exceptional growth opportunities;
  • About half of Aviva’s 26 acres remain undeveloped, providing ample room for development of new facilities and/or services;
  • Aviva is located adjacent to a community called the Meadows, with a population of 6,000 and an average age of 72.

Aviva is now involved in or planning several operational or strategic initiatives involving the COO:

  • Housekeeping and Dining are in the process of being taken in-house from a contractor;
  • A new HRIS system is being implemented;
  • An organization-wide cultural planning effort is underway;
  • New services are being planned and/or operationalized;
  • Branding and marketing efforts will be initiated due to the organization’s new name.

While the COO is primarily an operational role, s/he is expected to be highly engaged in strategic planning and decisions.

The Organization

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts (www.bluecrossma.com) is a community-focused, value driven, tax-paying, not-for-profit health plan headquartered in Boston. With $6.5B in premium revenue, BCBSMA is the health plan selected by more than 25,400 Massachusetts employers and has 2.9 M members. 800,000 of these members are from outside Massachusetts. The product lines include HMO/POS, PPO/Indemnity, Senior Products/Medicare and a dental plan. BCBSMA’s customers include more than 75 percent of cities and towns in Massachusetts and 6 of the 13 Fortune 500 companies headquartered in the Commonwealth.

 

Massachusetts has been a leader in implementing health care reform and BCBSMA leadership is widely credited for its contribution to the successful passage and implementation of legislation that made the state the first in the nation to achieve near universal health insurance coverage. BCBSMA was the architect of the payment methodology that represented a major innovation as a voluntary payment model for physician groups and hospitals in its network. BCBSMA developed the Alternative Quality Contract (AQC). The AQC was designed to advance the goals of significantly improving health care quality and outcomes, while also significantly slowing the growth of medical spending. The AQC’s innovative approach to payment creates accountability for total medical spending through population-level global budgets and for quality and outcomes through a broad set of nationally accepted performance measures, and has been emulated nationally by public and private payers, including the accountable care initiatives launched by Medicare. Ninety percent of the BCBSMA network providers now participate in the AQC.

 

BCBSMA continues to be an innovator in health, safety, and wellness programs. Nationally, BCBSMA has led the way in addressing the opioid epidemic with programs and policies and is a founder of The Coalition for Serious Illness Care which is working across Massachusetts to improve care at the end of life.

 

BCBSMA is recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) as one of the highest rated plans in the nation for member satisfaction, access to high quality primary and specialty care and effectiveness of wellness and prevention programs. The NCQA ratings include the Medicare and Commercial PPO and HMO plans. This recognition supports a high priority focus on being a consumer-centric organization and developing new initiatives to drive consumer engagement.

 

Outside of the health and wellness programs for which BCBSMA is well known and highly respected, BCBSMA is a good corporate citizen and encourages staff to commit to community based activities and organizations as volunteers. In the past year, almost 90 percent of BCBSMA associates participated in volunteer activities and contributed the equivalent of $1.4M as the value of their service hours.

 

BCBSMA established Zaffre Investments to help fund innovations to improve the delivery and use of health care. Zaffre Investments is a wholly owned subsidiary of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts with 14 portfolio companies that contribute $50M in revenue. Zaffre Investments makes strategic investments that add new value and offerings for BCBSMA customers, that also strengthens and diversifies the core business. Zaffre has several key areas of diversification targeted to providers and consumers: web-based tools and technology; consumer focused health care services; financial services; value based health care using advanced analytics, data storage and hosting, and IT solutions for ACO’s and medical management.
