Jeff Thorne took the helm at Our Lady of Peace Hospice and Home Health Care on Dec. 30, 2022, replacing Joe Stanislav who is retiring as CEO after 32 years of service.
Thorne brings 25 years of experience in healthcare and senior housing and care within not-for-profit organizations. He comes to Our Lady of Peace from Volunteers of America where he served as regional vice president of healthcare operations. Prior to Volunteers of America, he was vice president of operations at St. Therese and administrator/CEO at Cerenity Marian of Saint Paul, a senior Benedictine community. Thorne said, “Throughout my career, I’ve intentionally chosen to work for not-for-profit organizations that are mission focused, and I believe in hospice care, having experienced it personally and professionally. I’m looking forward to continuing to educate people on the benefits of hospice for individuals and families.”
Thorne will continue the 81-year legacy of compassionate care at Our Lady of Peace as 21 private care suites are added and the in-home hospice and home health care program continues to grow. Defining priorities, he said, “I want to listen and learn what people value most about Our Lady of Peace, and make sure it’s in our strategic plan to do more of it. And I want to make sure the medical community is aware of how our services can align with what they’re doing.”
Thorne described himself as a servant leader who likes collaboration. “I prefer to work with a team and draw from the expertise of other team members to make the best decisions. Our decisions will be mission focused, thoughtful, and based on facts and data.”
