Rethink Podcast #17: Chris Bryson of Consulate Health Care

The 17th episode of our podcast, Rethink, is now available!

With 140 facilities, Consulate Health Care is something of an outlier in the skilled nursing world, and has seen its share of ups and downs related to its size. But after a strategic shrinking — and an overhaul to improve quality and care at the bedside — the operator is ready to grow again. 

CEO Chris Bryson has led the work in turning the company around. He joined Rethink to talk about how Consulate “doubled in size overnight” in 2012 and had to streamline in subsequent years, the work of improving care and retention, and why the operator is looking to the future.

— Why scale can still benefit skilled nursing facilities
