Katie Piperata, NHA, MBA, CPC, oversees MedBest’s Interim Solutions Division. As a seasoned executive in senior living, she understands the industry and has mastered the art of developing and matching top interim leaders with Senior Living organizations in need of short-term coverage.
One of the attributes which has allowed Katie to help turn MedBest into such a successful recruiting firm, is that she has an extensive background in the Senior Living industry. Katie has been a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator and an Executive Director of a five-star rated long-term care facility where she was repeatedly recognized for her achievements. Katie has also formalized procedures that have advanced MedBest within the health care recruiting world.
Katie is certified in the DISC/Motivators Success Insight Practitioner Program, a world-renowned program that qualifies her to interpret behavioral assessments that help clients avoid the pitfalls of an unsuccessful hire. Along with that credential, Kaite has been recognized by the National Association of Personnel Services as being an expert in employment laws and how they relate to the day-to-day functioning of the search and staffing professional.
Because of her Senior Living expertise, Katie sits on the Board of Directors at Florida Presbyterian Homes, a non-profit Continuing Care Retirement Community in Lakeland, Florida. In addition, she has been a two-time presenter at Florida Healthcare Association’s annual conference and exhibit.
In the past eight years, Katie has placed over five hundred people throughout the US in Retirement Communities, Health Care Centers and Assisted Living Facilities. When Katie is not helping advance someone’s career or assisting a company with the perfect hire, you will find her volunteering her time in the fight to end cancer.
