Hosparus Health is pleased to announce the appointment of Austin, Texas-based talent acquisition firm Zingaro, Fidler, Wolfe & Co. to lead the national search for its new CEO. The company was selected for its specialized expertise in healthcare executive recruiting. Hosparus Health is one of the largest nonprofit hospice and palliative care organizations in United States, offering hospice care under the Hosparus brand, and palliative services under its newly launched companion brand, Pallitus Health Partners.

The search comes as result of former President and CEO Phil Marshall’s retirement, which was announced in December. Hosparus Health board members Cathy Zion and Cis Gruebbel have served as interim co-CEOs since his departure. Zingaro, Fidler, Wolfe & Co. was selected to lead the search for a permanent CEO after a thorough RFP review process.

“Zingaro, Fidler, Wolfe has a proven track record of building strong relationships with their clients, and successfully hiring more than 500 executives in the pharmaceutical, healthcare and life sciences space over the past 30 years,” says Zion. “Their vast experience and tailored approach to senior-level recruiting makes them the best partner to help us identify a seasoned, innovative healthcare leader and mission-driven visionary who will honor Hosparus Health’s legacy while ushering our organization into the future.”

Hosparus Health has formed a search committee, comprising board members, community partners and national experts in hospice and palliative care. The committee is looking for a seasoned healthcare executive to lead the organization’s vital strategic initiatives. They seek an individual who is a proven advocate for hospice and palliative care, both within local communities and nationally, and is able to lead with compassion, inclusion and cultural sensitivity, community focus and financial sustainability.

The selection process is expected to take several months, with a new CEO announced by the second half of 2021. Interested candidates looking to know more about the position or to apply should contact Tracy Wolfe at or (512) 327-7277.
