Global Partners in Care (GPIC) is pleased to announce John Mastrojohn III as our new president and CEO. This announcement comes after an extensive national search in collaboration with FurstGroup. As an affiliate of the Hospice Foundation, Global Partners in Care is overseen by the foundation’s leadership, including Mastrojohn.
Mastrojohn has a long and rich history in global hospice and palliative care that includes serving as GPIC’s executive director from 2010 to 2014 when it was an affiliate of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO). While at NHPCO, he held several other positions ultimately serving as the organization’s executive vice president. Mastrojohn was the founding director of Palliative Care & Hospice Services for Summa Health System, and most recently served as executive vice president and chief operating officer of Hospice of the Western Reserve (HWR) in Cleveland, OH. He has served on GPIC’s advisory council since it became an affiliate of the Hospice Foundation.
During his tenure at HWR, Mastrojohn also continued to be involved at both the state and national levels, including serving as the chair for “Care Solutions Network of Ohio,” a network of not-for-profit hospices collaborating to drive innovation and enhance the highest standards of care across the state of Ohio.
Mastrojohn holds a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Akron, and a Master of Science in Nursing and Master of Business Administration from Kent State University. Mastrojohn served as a Fulbright Fellow in Hungary (2004-2005) and is the 2019 recipient of the Galen Miller Leadership Award, recognizing his many contributions to hospice and palliative care.
With more than 25 years of experience in hospice and palliative care leadership, he has been a tireless advocate for increasing access and enhancing quality of care, locally, nationally and internationally. Mastrojohn said, “I am excited to be joining the team and to be part of an organization that has a longstanding reputation for excellence.” Mastrojohn explained he will be working with the boards of directors, staff and community leaders to enhance collaboration and increase access to hospice and palliative care.
