(December 19, 2017) -
The American Lung Association in North Texas has named Jeffrey Cellucci, division vice president at Kindred Healthcare, as president of the organization’s board of directors. Previously, Cellucci served as an active board member for the American Lung Association for a year and half. As president, he will provide oversight for all activities that advance the American Lung Association in Texas’s presence, effectiveness and sustainability in our North Texas region.
“We are so grateful to have Jeff as board president,” said Holly Motteram, executive director of the American Lung Association in North Texas. “With this experience and passion, we will be able to better serve the 3,559,000 Texans living with lung cancer, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other lung diseases. Jeff will help the North Texas board not only meet but exceed its mission goals.”
Cellucci joined Kindred Healthcare’s Hospital Division in 2009, starting in their Executive Fellowship Program. He has held various CEO and leadership roles across Kindred hospitals in the Midwest and Northeastern states. In 2015, Cellucci relocated to Texas where he assumed the role of chief operating officer for Kindred’s Dallas/Fort Worth Integrated Market. His current responsibilities as division vice president include oversight of the six long-term acute care hospitals and leading integration efforts across Kindred’s multiple levels of care. He received his bachelor’s degree from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and earned his master’s in business administration from Northwestern Kellogg School of Management. He was also selected for the Kindred’s Rising Star Program in 2014.
“The American Lung Association in Texas does incredible work in supporting our friends, families and neighbors who live with lung disease, and as board president, I will help lead the organization to do more in the fight to end lung disease,” Cellucci said.
