Ascension Living Names New President and CEO

Ascension Living—the senior services arm of the country’s largest nonprofit health care system—will soon have a new president and CEO.

Gayle Trupiano is set to assume the executive role on September 11. Trupiano originally joined Ascension, the health system, in 2004, and currently works as Ascension Health’s vice president, performance excellence. She will replace Jesse Jantzen, who has acted as Ascension Living’s president and CEO since 2015.

Previously, Trupiano ran Ascension’s Operations Resource Group, an internal consulting function supporting Ascension’s 2,500 sites of care in Washington, D.C., and 22 states.


St. Louis-based Ascension Living currently operates 37 senior living communities throughout 10 states and Washington, D.C.

The organization’s leadership transition follows a major acquisition for Ascension.

A joint venture of Ascension—Amita Health—recently acquired Presence Health, a Chicago-based health system that has 150 locations around the state, including 27 senior living and long-term care facilities.


Trupiano had not responded to Senior Housing News’ request for comment as of press time.
