The Athena team is led by founding partner, President, and C.E.O., Lawrence G. Santilli. He believed in the overriding principle of “Protecting the Quality of Life,” while maintaining a business model of steady, deliberate growth. Nearly 35 years later, those principles hold true as Athena now operates a growing network of more than 50 skilled nursing centers, assisted and senior living solutions, out-patient therapy services, as well as home care, hospice, and private duty care options – spanning three states.
Mr. Santilli is also a registered lobbyist with the state of Connecticut and is widely respected for his financial expertise having extensive experience in the healthcare industry. His experience is often called upon to educate legislators on various long-term care and senior health issues. Additionally, he serves as President of the Connecticut Association of Health Care Facilities and is a Board Member of the Massachusetts Senior Care Association.
Mr. Santilli leads a team of highly qualified professionals who bring a diverse background in management experience, covering all facets of health care and business management to the continuum. Their knowledge is deep, their approach creative and informed, and their expertise varied – including day-to-day operations, financial management, regulatory compliance, clinical care, public relations, marketing, and much more.
