Cleveland Clinic’s Steven Landers, M.D. Chosen new president and CEO of  Visiting Nurse Association Health Group, largest VNA in New Jersey

Dr. Landers currently serves as the Director of the Center for Home Care and Community Rehabilitation and Director of Post-Acute Operations for the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic Foundation.  In this role, he has broad responsibility for the health system’s post acute strategy.  The service lines under his stewardship deliver one million patient days of home care annually.  As a certified family doctor and geriatrician, Dr. Landers places a strong emphasis on house calls to the vulnerable elderly in his clinical practice and has a specialized interest in geriatric medicine, home health, hospice and palliative care.

“As a nationally-recognized leader in home and community-based healthcare delivery, Dr. Steven Landers is the ideal person to write the next great chapter in the story of the VNA Health Group,” said Denise Devine, Vice-Chair of the Board of Trustees and a member of the agency’s Search Committee.  “He has an unquestioned passion for healing and a deep commitment to safety-net, mission-driven care, and is widely respected for his servant leadership approach.”

“The ways in which we deliver, receive and pay for our health care services continue to change, and home health must be at the forefront of that change.  Steve will bring to our wonderful agency a proven record of innovation as we enter our next great century of service,” Devine added.  

“I am honored to join VNA Health Group,” said Landers. “This is an organization steeped in tradition and driven by extraordinary Board Members, professionals and volunteers who have enhanced countless lives and communities across New Jersey.  VNA Health Group has a track record of advanced, collaborative approaches to serving the community.  I look forward to building upon that foundation as we deliver the finest home and community-based care possible.” 

Dr. Landers received his medical degree from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and a Master of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University.  He completed his residency at University Hospitals of Cleveland and Fellowship in Geriatric Medicine at Cleveland Clinic.  He currently serves on the board of directors of the National Association of Home Care and Hospice and the American Academy of Home Care Physicians.  He has authored several articles on the role of home care in national publications, including the New England Journal of Medicine and the Journal of the American Medicine.
