“I am thrilled to join the MAS Medical team, and I am looking forward to leading the digital transformation of this industry by leveraging the innovative MAESTRA technology and leading Nurse-First culture that MAS has developed,” said Delage, CEO of MAS. “Supporting nurses and connecting them with facilities that match their preferences can improve the quality of care within the LTC setting, especially as the nation continues to struggle with staffing supply shortages – this is a critically important mission, and I am proud to be a part of it.”
