JONATHAN BARBIERI, RN Senior Vice President Hearth Management

JONATHAN BARBIERI has a history of fi rsts. In high school he was the fi rst student nominated to par- ticipate in a cross-district Allied Health program. As a student at the University of South Carolina, he was the fi rst athlete to maintain Division I sports program requirements while meeting nursing clinical demands. He was the fi rst graduate nurse to go directly on the ICU fl oor at Main Line Heath Paoli, and at 23, he was one of the youngest members of the Sunrise Senior Living executive director team. As an energetic leader, he joined others with a similar vision as a board member at Greenfi eld Senior Living, where he helped triple the size of the organization. He also founded a human resource company to address the growing labor force disconnect companies of all sizes face by applying the same core care principles prevalent in health care to banking, fi nance, and human capital management. Barbieri spearheaded the introduction of Check In Angels to senior living, which brought supports to

thousands across the nation. When Facebook users check in at participating locations, their friends and family receive a notifi cation that serves as a tacit endorsement of the community. Check In Angels operates through the online platform Causely, which makes a donation to charity for each check-in. Jonathan’s ongoing aspirations and interests will always fi nd common ground around a consistent and careful trans- formation within our industry to expand and improve the lives of those he serves.
