“I am pleased that Holy Cross Health has been recognized by an organization like Seabury with its history and a reputation of being innovative and adaptable to the needs of seniors,” Sexton said.

“I admire Seabury for its long-standing service to seniors and especially for finding ways to keep people as healthy and active as possible and helping them to live the way they wish.”

Under Sexton’s leadership, Holy Cross Health has been a pioneer in senior health services. This includes the development of the first Seniors Emergency Center in the U.S., a Seniors Surgery Center, and an Acute Care for Elderly (ACE) program. In addition, Holy Cross Health offers numerous home and community based fitness/wellness and disease prevention and management programs specifically for seniors.

Mr. Sexton has served as Director of Management and Budget, in the Federal Health Care Financing Administration, the precursor organization to CMS.
