Home Health & Hospice Care, which serves 25 New Hampshire communities and has 250 clinicians and administrative staff, has named John Getts as the organization’s new president and CEO.

Getts, whose first day will be Aug. 25, replaces Karen L. Baranowski, who served as the president and CEO of the organization for about 11 years. 

Getts brings to the position 30 years of experience in the health care industry and comes from Kindred Transitional Care and Rehabilitation – Greenbriar in Nashua, N.H., where he served as CEO for the past 15 years.

“I’m looking forward to leading the dedicated caregivers at Home Health & Hospice Care as they strive to provide essential home care services for individuals in southern New Hampshire,” Getts said in a statement.
