With a great deal of passion, the leadership team of NuVista Living has recognized the postacute health care industry’s need for a transformation of care delivery. Combining their experience and knowledge, NuVista Living was founded through the collaborative vision of four of the most experienced and successful healthcare executives in the nation, focusing on longterm care facilities with an emphasis on design, development, and operations.
Elizabeth Marie Fago Elizabeth Marie Fago has been involved in longterm care since 1985, and has a proven track record in the development and management of healthcare properties. After witnessing a serious deficiency in treatment quality during her first years in the business, Ms. Fago went on to found one of the largest, most highlyregarded private healthcare companies in the United States: Home Quality Management (HQM). At its peak, HQM operated 72 longterm care facilities, many of which have been recognized on the floor of the U.S. Congress, and cited in the“Congressional Record for Quality of Care and Community Involvement.”
In 2001, Ms. Fago’s accomplishments earned her a spot on the “Florida Council of 100” – an advisory board to the Governor – as well as a presidential invitation to the “Women Business Leaders Forum,” held at the White House. Ms. Fago was one of the earliest and strongest supporters of Scripps Florida, and the Scripps Florida Library is to be named in her honor. As a true leader in today’s longterm care industry, Ms. Fago maintains the same passionate commitment to quality healthcare that made her who she is today.
