Healthcare Solutions, the parent company of Cypress Care, Procura Management, ScripNet and Modern Medical, has announced that David George, chairman and chief executive officer of Healthcare Solutions, has decided to transition his current responsibilities as chief executive officer (CEO) while continuing in his role as chairman of the board.
In conjunction with this decision, Joe Boures, Healthcare Solutions' president and chief operating officer, has been appointed as Healthcare Solutions' new president and CEO, effective August 1, 2014.
George has served as Healthcare Solutions CEO since 2006. Under his leadership the company has evolved from a pharmacy benefit management company to deliver product and service offerings across the entire medical spectrum in both the workers' compensation and auto insurance markets.
The company now provides healthcare products and services across the full spectrum of medical care, including specialty healthcare services, such as durable medical equipment and supplies, prosthetics and orthotics, home health, dental, diagnostic imaging, physical medicine, and transportation and language services, as well as managed care products including PPO networks, medical bill review and case management.
"The decision to initiate a transition at this time is a direct reflection of my confidence in the depth and talent across the company's entire leadership team, and in the energy, enthusiasm and leadership that Joe will bring to the company as CEO," said George. "Joe is an experienced executive with a proven track record who is well established and recognized in the industry. He has demonstrated consistent success and his leadership will be critical to the company's continued achievements."
Boures joined Healthcare Solutions in August of 2011. He is a 20 year veteran of the workers' compensation industry and has extensive experience in executive management positions. Prior to joining Healthcare Solutions, Boures served as president for Specialty Risk Services, (SRS), a subsidiary of The Hartford Financial Services Group, which was acquired by Sedgwick Claims Management Services. As president, he oversaw all facets of the SRS operations, including business development, account management and field operations.
In his current role as president and COO of Healthcare Solutions, Boures provides oversight for the company's operational, financial, account management, marketing, legal and IT services. Under Boures' direction, the company has continued to manage high growth while maintaining an unwavering commitment to quality results and customer satisfaction.
"Joe was brought to Healthcare Solutions with this leadership evolution in mind," said George. "He will serve the company and our customers well as the new CEO."
