Gomez to Lead Oklahoma Association of Health Care Providers

It didn’t take long for outgoing Oklahoma Health Care Authority CEO Nico Gomez to reveal where he’s headed after he leaves the state agency. He’ll join the Oklahoma Association of Health Care Providers (OAHCP) as its President and CEO in October.

OAHCP Board President Tandie Hastings said the association scored a huge asset with the hiring of Gomez and should be considered a win for Oklahoma’s long-term care providers and their elderly clients.

“Nico Gomez is a universally respected leader within the health care community,” said Hastings. “He is an accomplished manager, an expert on long-term care, and a passionate advocate for Oklahoma’s elderly and vulnerable citizens. We could not have found a more qualified and accomplished person for the role.”

Gomez is looking to use the position to raise the bar for long-term care in Oklahoma.

“How we treat seniors, individuals with disabilities and the vulnerable shows a lot about who we are as a state and as a people,” said Gomez. “I am excited to be on the front line of the effort to improve our health outcomes and increase both standards of care and the resources we commit to support the men and women who rely on long-term care.”

Gomez will begin his new role on October 3, 2016. He’s been with the Health Care Authority for 16 years. The last three and a half was spent as the agency’s CEO.
