Trinity Health, based in Michigan, has appointed Janice Hamilton-Crawford as its next president and chief executive officer as of June 6.
According to the statement, Hamilton-Crawford's appointment makes her the first Black woman to be chosen president and CEO of a Trinity Health national division.
Trinity Health is the parent company of Hartford-based Trinity Health Of New England, whose partners include Mercy Medical Center.
Hamilton-Crawford has served as president of Trinity Health of New England Senior Communities since 2018. This organization has management agreements with Providence Place and Mary's Meadow at Providence Place in Holyoke, both of which are owned by the Sisters of Providence Ministry Corporation. It also works with other facilities in the Greater Springfield area, including the Beaven Kelly Home in Holyoke and St. Luke's Home in Springfield.
Jan is the ideal candidate to competently lead Trinity Health Senior Communities, according to John Capasso, executive vice president of Trinity Health and president of Continuing Care. "Jan's results-driven record paired with her character makes her the perfect fit," he said in a statement. “Her strategic thinking and innate servant leadership style will advance the great tradition of resident-centered care at Senior Communities.”
Hamilton-Crawford oversees more than 40 independent living, assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing, and subsidized senior housing complexes across the United States in her new position as Steve Kastner's successor, who announced his retirement last year.
She joined Trinity Health as the organization's first president for the New England region's senior communities. She developed a network of independent living, assisted living, nursing homes, and skilled nursing communities across Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Maine while holding the job.
Hamilton-Crawford graduated from Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio, Texas, with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and a Master of Business Administration in Healthcare Management. She successfully finished Yale University's School of Management's Women's Leadership Program.
