Greystone Healthcare Management has named Melissa Purvis its new chief nursing officer, in charge of overseeing operations of 35 skilled nursing facilities that the Tampa, Florida-based company manages.
Formerly, Purvis served as national director of clinical practice for Golden Living from 2014 to 2016; the Plano, Texas-based company operates about 300 skilled nursing facilities across the country. Her most recent position was CNO for Menorah Manor, a nonprofit provider in St. Petersburg, Florida, with a full continuum of senior care.
“Purvis brings with her nearly 30 years’ experience working in post-acute skilled nursing, primarily as a clinical leader,” Greystone stated Monday in a press release. “She has served as a director of nursing and a licensed nursing home administrator in facilities ranging from 60 to 400 beds across several states.”
Greystone also touted her focus on workforce engagement and transparent leadership, through which Purvis has managed to keep turnover low in her prior organizations. In her new role, she will be overseeing all nursing initiatives for Greystone’s quality-based clinical programs.
In addition to its SNFs, Greystone operates home health agencies and offers transitional care coordination.
