“Matt has changed my life forever.  He is my mentor and my dearest friend.  Despite his busy schedule, Matt made time to mentor me regularly, as a young LTC leader, and has played a critical role in charting my career path.  He is the smartest person I know in LTC, yet when you are with him, he makes you feel like you are the most important person, because to him, you are.  Matt embodies the qualities we all admire and strive to emulate in a LTC leader.  Matt, today we honor you, and we will strive to build upon your legacy.”

- Nigel Santiago, President of Vincero Hospital

"Matt is a Renaissance man. He knows senior living, long-term care, healthcare delivery, and the complex relationships between patients, payers, and providers with incredible depth, breadth, and insight. Experienced as I was in healthcare, time spent with Matt only deepened and broadened that knowledge and that understanding. Innovation alone is admirable, but innovation and understanding of how to build and do things is what makes a difference. Matt is a thinker, a builder, a doer. It's what talented women and men have done throughout history. They see things as they are and envision a way in which things can be improved and made better. It is their work that enriches life and makes us all better people. In my career, I have not met a better innovator than Matt." - John Snader, President and CEO of Brethren Village

I have been Matt's assistant for almost 13 years and he has been a source of inspiration and motivation for me. Matt has been a great role model to me and he has created values of excellence, collaboration and respect in our workplace and amongst our staff. He is the best boss that I have ever had and I could never thank him enough for his words of praise and appreciation throughout the years.

Matt has taught me so much in the area of managed care and how organizations can partner together, even across many miles, to make a difference in the lives of our residents and team members. In my many years as being an executive, Matt is the person who has demonstrated forward thinking than anyone I know. He has pushed me to think differently as a leader and I am a better leader for it. Thank you, Matt, for pushing CHAPa forward and for having patience with us as we figured it out together!
