New Canaan, CT - William C. Piper has been named Chief Executive Officer of Waveny Care Network in New Canaan, Connecticut. In his new position, Piper will be responsible for managing the strategic growth, operations, development and future direction of Waveny’s comprehensive continuum of healthcare, which includes 76 skilled nursing beds at Waveny Care Center, 53 assisted living apartments for people with memory loss at The Village, 41 independent living apartments at New Canaan Inn, a new Home Healthcare Agency, an active Adult Day Program, the Brown Geriatric Evaluation Clinic, a team of Geriatric Care Managers, and a state-of-the-art outpatient rehabilitation facility. His appointment concludes a nationwide search launched this summer after Heather Neff, CEO for the previous five years, departed to pursue a new opportunity.

In announcing the appointment, Jay Twombly, chairman of Waveny Care Network’s board of directors, noted Piper’s distinguished career in eldercare with the Masonicare organization. “Bill Piper joins Waveny with more than 25 years of experience in long-term care operations, management and administration across an extensive continuum of services and programs,” said Twombly. “In the midst of a rapidly changing healthcare environment, Bill’s depth and breadth of expertise will be invaluable in charting the course for Waveny, now and in the future.”

“We are confident that Bill has the vision, ability and experience necessary to lead Waveny and position its programs to best serve the growing needs of older adults,” said Julianne Grace, chair of Waveny’s search committee. “After several months during which we reviewed the credentials of many fine candidates in a nationwide search, our Committee was unanimous in supporting Bill for the CEO position. All who are touched by our organization will benefit from his experience in managing a Connecticut-based not-for-profit continuum of care very similar in mission to Waveny.”

Piper’s work with Masonicare spans nearly three decades and demonstrates progressive growth in scope and responsibility within the statewide organization. Most recently, he served as the organization’s Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. While spearheading key initiatives in customer service relations, information technology and business development, he was responsible for the direction of a team of 20 executives, 2,400 employees and more than $170 million in revenue. Prior to assuming this role, Piper served as Senior Vice President of Continuum Services, a unique position responsible for the oversight of Masonicare’s five operating affiliates throughout the State. In addition to improving the overall financial performance of the organization, his leadership notably led to increased patient satisfaction in all areas throughout the continuum.

“It is my honor and pleasure to join Waveny Care Network,” said Piper. “I am extremely grateful for the trust and confidence Waveny’s board of directors has placed in me by selecting me to lead this progressive continuum of care and its outstanding staff. I am impressed by the enthusiasm and dedication of everyone I’ve met thus far and look forward to getting to know our patients, residents, their families, our board and committee members, volunteers and the entire Waveny community.”

Piper received his undergraduate degree from Western Connecticut State University of Danbury, Connecticut, and holds a master’s degree in healthcare administration from Quinnipiac University of Hamden, Connecticut.

Located on two campuses in New Canaan, Connecticut, Waveny Care Network provides a comprehensive continuum of care – now including skilled Home Healthcare – to serve the growing needs of older adults from all areas. Waveny is a not-for-profit organization that offers independent living at New Canaan Inn, assisted living for people with Alzheimer’s and memory loss at The Village, and skilled nursing at Waveny Care Center. It also includes the Brown Geriatric Evaluation Clinic, a Geriatric Care Management team that provides 24-hour coverage, an Adult Day Program that offers flexible hours and transportation six days a week, inpatient and outpatient Rehabilitation Services, and respite programs at both The Village and Care Center.
