Steward Health Exec to Replace Stephan Rodgers as AccentCare’s CEO
SEPTEMBER 14, 2023
AccentCare CEO Steve Rodgers is stepping down, with Laura Tortorella, COO of Steward Health, lined up to succeed him. Rodgers became AccentCare’s top executive in 2012 after more than three years as the CEO of OptumHealth Collaborative Care. Optum is now a subsidiary of UnitedHealth Group (NYSE:UNH). A major achievement during Rodgers’ tenure at the Dallas-based hospice, home health and palliative care provider was the company’s 2020 merger with Illinois-based Seasons Hospice & Palliative.
