Mr. Storto is the President of Partners Continuing Care (“PCC”) and the Spaulding Rehabilitation Network ("SRN"). Under Mr. Storto's leadership since 1998, PCC has grown and been developed as the fully integrated non-acute care services division of Partners HealthCare based in Boston, Massachusetts. PCC includes two inpatient rehabilitation hospitals with 23 outpatient centers, two long term acute care hospitals, and three skilled nursing facilities, together recognized as the SRN. Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital is the highly ranked and internationally recognized flagship of the SRN and is home to the Harvard Medical School's Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
PCC's home care organization that covers Eastern Massachusetts is now known as Partners HealthCare at Home ("PHH"). PHH represents the integration over 30 hospital based home care agencies and community based Visiting Nurse Associations. PHH has been recognized as one of the National Home Care Elite, a distinction given to the top 25% performing agencies in the nation by Outcome Concept Systems. PHH was also one of the top performing home care organizations in the country in the CMS pay for performance demonstration project, driven heavily by its 90+ percentile performance in relation to avoidance of emergency department visits and unplanned acute hospital readmissions.
Mr. Storto is a Trustee of PCC and its subsidiaries, as well as of the Massachusetts General Hospital Health Services Corporation. Since 1998, Mr. Storto has been a member of the Specialty Hospital CEO Group of the Massachusetts Hospital Association (“MHA”) and in 2009 he was elected to the MHA Board of Directors.
