The Board of Directors of InnovAge Holding Corp. (Nasdaq: INNV) accepted the resignation of longtime CEO and director Maureen Hewitt, effective January 1, 2022, who has decided after 15 years with the company to pursue other opportunities. The Board also elevated Patrick Blair, the President of InnovAge, to the position of President and CEO.

InnovAge Board Chair Andrew Cavanna stated: “Patrick is a proven and effective leader who has the Board’s full support to lead InnovAge and to quickly address the issues that have arisen with CMS and our regulators in California and Colorado. We are committed to restoring trust with our regulators to being the leading steward of the PACE program. We also want InnovAge’s participants to know that the Board is committed to upholding the highest standards of care. Patrick’s long experience in healthcare services at Bayada, Amerigroup and Anthem make him uniquely qualified to lead the company, and we are excited to appoint Patrick as the President and CEO of InnovAge.”

Patrick Blair added, “I am very excited about the future of the PACE program, and about the quality of our InnovAge team. COVID has presented unique challenges to all providers, including PACE. Still, it is a great care model. I know we can address the issues presented and return to a very constructive partnership with the California and Colorado programs.”

Maureen Hewitt, the longtime CEO of InnovAge commented, “I am very proud of what we accomplished at InnovAge. I believe PACE is the best way to care for low-income seniors, and I know we have done a tremendous job for many thousands of participants and their families in the 15 years I have been privileged to lead the Company.”

Board member, and longtime Board Chair Tom Scully, added, “I have always loved the PACE program, and when I met Maureen in 2012, I knew that she was bringing a new level of energy to this unparalleled model for senior care. We spent 3 years working with the State of Colorado to convert InnovAge into a private company, while creating a large foundation to support senior care in Colorado. With her tireless leadership, the company has since grown into four additional states, and InnovAge has helped the PACE model grow in popularity and acceptance. I am proud to have worked with Maureen for all these years, and grateful for all she has accomplished in building a great team and a great company.”
