Green replaces CFO Mary Connick, who has been serving as interim CEO.
The San Francisco Campus for Jewish Living (SFCJL) announced today that Adrienne Green, MD, has been selected as its new CEO. Green will officially step into the role on July 18.
For the last 150 years, the SFCJL has provided a spectrum of services for seniors as they age, including long- and short-term care at the Jewish Home and Rehab Center and assisted living and memory care at its Frank Residences facility.
Green previously served as the nonprofit's organization's chief medical officer for adult services, as well as the vice president for regulatory and medical affairs at University of California San Francisco (UCSF) Health.
"As a trustee of the board, I have come to not only admire the care provided at SFCJL, but also find myself more invested in all components of the organization," Green said in a statement.
"As a physician, as an engaged member of our Jewish community, and as someone who cares deeply about our elderly patients and staff who work in senior care, I am inspired and motivated by this opportunity. It brings my passion, training, and expertise together in a most meaningful way."
Green's interest in the skilled nursing space began while she worked as a hospitalist in the skilled nursing unit of Mount Zion Hospital. As medical director for case management, she got involved in discharge planning and became familiar with the greater post-acute and skilled nursing landscape.
While working on the launch of UCSF's first skilled nursing facility and home health collaborative in 2014, she had the opportunity to collaborate with SFCJL and learn more about the organization.
"We are excited that Adrienne, a former member of our Board of Trustees, has accepted this role," David Lowi, board chair, said in a statement. "I am confident that Dr. Green will exemplify one of my favorite Jewish sayings, 'From strength to strength may we be strengthened.'"
“As a physician, as an engaged member of our Jewish community, and as someone who cares deeply about our elderly patients and staff who work in senior care, I am inspired and motivated by this opportunity.”
