Visiting Nurse Association Health Group announces new CEO and president

Holmdel-based Visiting Nurse Association Health Group on Tuesday announced that Christopher Rinn has been named CEO and president, starting in early August.

Rinn is a longtime Monmouth County resident, with a longstanding career in public health, policy and community health. Since 2017, Rinn has served as the CEO for VNA of Central Jersey Community Health Centers. Previously, he served as the acting commissioner for the New Jersey Department of Health and was the executive director of emergency medical services and government affairs for Jersey City Medical Center.

“Christopher is a compassionate servant leader with a deep passion for public health and a drive to ensure high-quality services are provided to the community,” Dr. Steven Landers, who is stepping down as CEO and president of VNA Health Group this summer, said. “As a respected health care policy and public health leader, Christopher is an excellent fit for our future.”

“We wanted someone who understands our sophisticated network of programs and services and has the skills and experience to oversee our various programs and services, and Christopher checks all the boxes,” notes Patrick McMenamin, VNAHG board chairman, who helped lead the Search Committee for the organization alongside Vice Chairman Robert Dibble.
