QUINCY, Mass. (May 1, 2019) – IntelyCare today announced that John Shagoury has been appointed President & Chief Operating Officer, a newly created position at IntelyCare, an expansion to their executive team. Shagoury joined the company in early February 2019.

“I am extremely excited to join this dynamic team as we continue to bring technology-enabled innovations to an increasingly frustrated marketplace,” said Shagoury. “IntelyCare modernizes the traditionally inefficient and manual process of scheduling shifts at post-acute healthcare facilities; their expertise in post-acute staffing, coupled with their unique approach to workforce management optimization, presents an opportunity to truly reinvent the market.”
