Fort Worth-based Jet Health Taps Industry Veteran as its New Chief Executive Officer

The company said that Larry Nabb will oversee all day-to-day operations and business functions as well as growth and acquisition strategies.

Larry Nabb has been appointed chief executive officer of Jet Health Inc., a Fort Worth-based regional provider of home health, hospice, and personal care services. He replaces Stacie Bratcher, who was CEO since March 2020.

Jim Glynn, Jet Health’s founder and board chair, recently expressed his confidence in the company’s new appointment, Nabb. Described as a skilled strategic leader, Nabb comes with a wealth of operational experience and an aptitude for inspiring growth and engagement in the teams he’s led.

“Jet Health’s board of directors believes [his] extensive industry expertise and proven track record will position him for success in leading Jet Health forward,” Glynn said in a statement, calling Nabb a “solid strategic leader with exceptional interpersonal skills and impressive operational experience.”

The company said that Nabb will oversee all day-to-day operations and business functions as well as growth and acquisition strategies.

Jet Health said its operations span 16 markets in the Southwest and Mountain West of the United States, which are branded under the Jet Health umbrella as Klarus, First Choice, Hospice de la Luz, and Trio.

Veteran home health and hospice leader

Nabb is an experienced healthcare leader in the home health and hospice industries, the company said.

Before Jet Health, Nabb was CEO and board member for Providence Care LLC, a home health, hospice, and house call provider serving the Southeast United States. There, Nabb led the company’s acquisition strategy, bolstered the executive team, and expanded its footprint from one state to multiple states, now serving over 6,500 clients.

Prior to Providence, Nabb was president and chief operating officer at Remita Health, a large hospice provider serving California, Arizona and Nevada. While he was there, the company tripled their earnings, and he developed key payor relationships and established value-based joint ventures with Blue Shield, Anthem, and Optum Health.

“Jet Health has steadily grown through acquisition as well as organically over the past several years, resulting in the strong presence it established and positive reputation it earned throughout the markets they serve,” Nabb said in a statement. “My background and experience, coupled with the Company’s solid footing in both the space as well as geographic areas it reaches, will serve as a springboard for taking Jet Health to the next level. I am confident in my abilities to help the company achieve its expansion goals over the short- and long-term.”
