“We are excited to provide Orlando's seniors with exceptional, comprehensive healthcare and care in a highly coordinated manner, including transportation, nutrition, socialization and more,” said Patrick Blair, President and CEO of InnovAge. “These comprehensive services are a great relief for seniors and their loved ones, as well as our healthcare partners and their staff. We believe partnering with Orlando Health will support our efforts and add value to participants and the community.”

Andy Gardiner, senior vice president of external and community relations at Orlando Health, emphasized the need for InnovAge's highly focused, personalized approach to elder care. “Our mission at Orlando Health is to improve the health and quality of life of the people and communities we serve.
