Chief Executive OfficerBIO
Benjamin Kurland is President, Chief Executive Officer, and owner of Allaire Health Services, a progressive healthcare services organization based in Central New Jersey. Under Ben’s leadership and with an intense focus on operational turnaround, Allaire has grown from owning and operating a single facility into being a complex, comprehensive multi-facility company that spans four states – New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Vermont. With diverse experience working with Hospitals, Health Systems, Managed Care Organizations, multi-specialty/multi-location physician group practices, and Management Service Organizations (MSO), Ben provides leadership and direction to over 750+ staff members and works to ensure that the facilities he is leading operate as a centerpiece of the community.
Ben began his career in healthcare volunteering in the oncology ward for Zichron Menachem, a cancer support organization, and has progressively advanced within the skilled nursing facility business. He has served as Assistant Administrator, Administrator, and Regional Administrator, eventually becoming a partner in three Aristacare buildings. With each position, Ben has maintained a vision of exceptional performance leveraging evidence-based clinical care strategies, always focused on what is best for patients and residents.
Ben has successfully transformed a total of ten (10) underperforming facilities (three at Aristacare and six at Allaire) by implementing industry best practices and partnering with leading hospitals/health systems in the region to source patients/residents, align care strategies, and advance strategies for population health and wellness. The institutions that have been acquired or come under Allaire management now offer premium healthcare programs that outperform the competition in terms of team cohesiveness, operational efficiency, productivity, and patient outcomes. Driving the industry standard for program quality in Allaire’s first building, Ben led the transformation of a specialized but underutilized neurological program, which started with 18 beds and transformed into a full-service facility with 174 beds dedicated to long-term neurological impairment with programmatic technologies and a multidisciplinary approach to patient-centered services. With this success, Allaire has added additional facilities to the Allaire family, each of which has undergone the same level of clinical, performance, and aesthetic transformation as the original Allaire facility.
Ben continues to identify new opportunities for expanding the Allaire portfolio of facilities and services. The strategies employed within Allaire facilities have been recognized by other organizations as leading practices, and this recognition has resulted in the launching of Allaire Management Services. Under Ben’s leadership, Allaire Management Services was engaged by the State of Pennsylvania’s Department of Health to lead a turnaround and restructuring of a significant facility in Western Pennsylvania to overcome a mass COVID-19 outbreak within the resident population. Ben has concurrently led the development and advancement of a formal affiliation between Allaire Health Services and Atlantic Health, a partnership focused on joint operation and service delivery at Allaire’s Morristown Post Acute facility. The partnership has also resulted in the rapid establishment of a dedicated COVID-19 unit for transitional care. Under Ben’s leadership, Allaire has evolved from being an operator of facilities to be a comprehensive management and advisory company for skilled nursing facilities.
In addition to responsibilities with Allaire, Ben serves as a Board member of the Healthcare Association of NJ (HCANJ). He was the recipient of the New Administrator Award in 2011 from the New Jersey College of Healthcare Administrators and currently serves as the non-profit organization’s Vice President. As a community-focused advocate, Ben is an active member of the Traumatic Brain Injury Alliance and participates in numerous community philanthropic events. Ben is also a regular guest speaker for New Jersey’s Professional Career Services organization.
Ben has a master’s degree and his LNHA certification. In addition, he is a Certified Dementia Practitioner. Ben also holds his RAC-CT, enabling him to understand MDS terminology and better provide care to residents.
