Miami Jewish Health Systems announces that Scott Ariel has joined the organization as the new Director of Miami Jewish Health Systems’ Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE). Ariel will oversee all PACE centers, including Douglas Gardens and Hialeah. His extensive knowledge in elder and long term care will further advance the overall goal of Miami Jewish Health Systems’ PACE Centers of keeping seniors out of institutional care and living independently.
“Scott Ariel is a terrific addition to the Miami Jewish Health Systems team,” said Jeffrey P. Freimark, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Having previously worked as a leader in numerous long term care organizations, Ariel’s skillset is perfectly equipped to lead the development and expansion of Miami Jewish Health Systems’ PACE Centers.”
Prior to joining Miami Jewish Health Systems, Ariel served as Vice President of Post-Acute, Ancillary & Support Services at Hebrew Rehabilitation Center in Massachusetts. In addition, he acted as Chief Operating Officer and Administrator at Massachusetts’ Kindred Hospital Northeast Braintree.
Ariel received The Schwartz Center’s Compassionate Caregiver Award in 2010 and was also honored by Kindred Hospital with the Lamplighter Award for cost-effective hospital advertising campaign.
Ariel holds a Master of Business Administration from Boston’s Suffolk University and a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies from West Virginia’s Wesleyan College.
