Moorestown-based BAYADA Home Health Care announced Thursday it has appointed David Baiada as its CEO, succeeding his father and company founder Mark Baiada, who is transitioning to the role of chairman.
“I could not think of a better birthday gift for my father than an unbreakable promise that The BAYADA Way, which he inspired and helped author, will live forever,” David Baiada said. “This is a gift Mark shares with our current and future clients and their families, who can be assured they will continue to receive high-quality care focused on comfort, independence, and dignity, and our current and future employees, whose career and calling will be nurtured and their work deeply valued. I am honored and profoundly committed to continue the mission on behalf of all those we serve.”
Mark Baiada, 70, founded BAYADA Home Health Care at the age of 27. He expanded the company over 42 years to more than $1.2 billion in revenue. The company provides community care to about 30,000 clients a week.
“Transforming BAYADA into a nonprofit reflects our company’s deep commitment to helping people live safely at home and protecting employees’ livelihoods, while also setting the stage for sustainable future growth,” Mark Baiada said. “I am incredibly excited to watch David lead BAYADA into an undeniably bright future, guided as always by the framework of The BAYADA Way.”
