(March 31, 2023) — HealthPRO Heritage announces the retirement of founder and CEO John Heller after 16 years of leadership. Maxine Hochhauser will join the rehab and health innovations company as CEO on April 24.

Under his leadership, Mr. Heller grew HealthPRO Heritage into a $500M national health services provider with business in 43 states from a small $10M company that operated in only three states in 2007.

“My goal has always been to hand the company off to the next generation of leaders, and I’m optimistic about transitioning HealthPRO Heritage’s CEO role to Maxine,” remarked Mr. Heller.

“We congratulate John on building the industry’s most innovative and diversified company in the therapy space,” stated Naishadh Lalwani, Partner at Wellspring Capital Management, LLC. “Also, we are thrilled to have Maxine on board to take HealthPRO Heritage to the next phase of growth. We are fortunate to have a new leader with such an impressive track record in health care services.”

Ms. Hochhauser began her extensive and impressive career as a Physical Therapist.  Most recently, she was President of the Home and Community Based Services Division of LHC Group, a leading Home Care provider. Prior to LHC, Ms. Hochhauser held senior leadership positions with Addus Homecare (COO), Amedisys (SVP), Alliancecare (CEO), VNA (President/CEO) and Metropolitan Jewish Health System (EVP/COO).  

“We have much to look forward to as we leverage our position in the market and our reputation as a top-of-market provider,” states Ms. Hochhauser. “We will build on our success by remaining dedicated to our 14,000 front-line professionals, 900,000 patients and 100,000 kiddos we have the privilege to serve each year.”
