As Vice President of Business Development for Goodwin House Incorporated (GHI), Andy M. Siegel leads efforts to pursue and advance new business opportunities that help GHI expand the places and ways we serve. For more than 12 years, Andy has been working to improve the quality of life for older adults and individuals with advanced illness.
Andy started his career at the Charles E. Smith Life Communities, focusing on outreach for an innovative ethical wills program that eventually expanded to schools, universities and other senior living communities. In 2011, Andy started working in the inpatient Palliative Medicine Program at The George Washington University Hospital where he facilitated advanced care planning with patients, families and medical staff. Andy continued his career at Capital Caring, where he worked with D.C. health systems on maximizing clinically appropriate and patient-centered discharge planning for individuals seeking hospice care or palliative care.
A passion for collaborating with healthcare providers brought Andy to GHI, where he knew he could work with others to increase the quality of care for those served. Since joining GHI, Andy has been integral in developing a strategic plan with three areas of specific focus: enhancing and expanding home- and community-based services; providing alternative reimbursement models to increase services available to older adults; and increasing corporate partnerships around healthcare service delivery and research.
