Jared Kosin, JD, MBA, will begin serving as president and CEO of the Alaska State Hospital and Nursing Home Association tomorrow. The nonprofit trade association’s membership includes nursing homes, assisted living facilities, acute care hospitals and behavioral health facilities.

Kosin was most recently associate administrator of Mat-Su Regional Medical Center. Before that, he was the executive director of the Office of Rate Review at Alaska’s Department of Health and Social Services. Other past experience includes policy and legislative leadership for the Colorado speaker of the house and Michigan Senate majority leader.

He will succeed Becky Hultberg, who announced in August that she will depart ASHNHA in December to lead the Oregon Association of Hospitals and Health Systems. The ASHNHA Executive Committee conducted a nationwide search for Hultberg’s replacement.

Kosin holds a juris doctor degree from Michigan State University College of Law, an MBA from the University of New Hampshire, and an undergraduate degree in English from the University of New Hampshire.
