Regional Vice President

Matt Tait has worked as a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator since early 2010. He began his career with Skilled Healthcare in Albuquerque, NM. Matt took a challenging building with low census to a busy facility with high profit margins in just a few months. Matt credits this quick turnaround to his hands-on approach in management with a very active participation in admission and resident satisfaction.

He later joined Genesis Healthcare when they purchased the Skilled Healthcare portfolio in 2013. Matt was recruited to move back to his old hometown of Kansas City in 2015 to operate the brand new “Kansas City Transitional Care Center” (KCTCC), on the campus of Kansas University Medical Center, the region’s largest Level 1 trauma and cardiac center. He grew census at the facility to 70% sub acute within 12 months and followed that by great survey records during his time at KCTCC.

He joined Recover-Care in 2017 when they acquired Kansas properties from Genesis. Matt has operated Shawnee Gardens Rehab Center in Shawnee, KS a suburb of Kansas City. In a short time, Matt grew census from a 105 average with 5 Medicare to 125 and 18 Medicare where the building maintains its census now. Matt was directly responsible for hiring and maintaining top Department Heads and key Nursing Personnel. Matt earned a Bronze Award at AHCA national conference in 2019.

Matt spent several years in both Miami and Los Angeles as a child, but claims Kansas City as his hometown, where he graduated high school in 1998. He spent two years serving a mission for his church in Santiago, Chile, where he learned to speak Spanish fluently. He subsequently completed his college schooling and received a law degree from the University of Missouri. He is a proud husband and father of five, and an avid Chiefs fan.

Matt was promoted to RVP role in 2020 and joins a fantastic team of Clinical and Operational leadership within Recover-Care.
