Josh McClellan, Owner and CEO

Josh McClellan
Mr. McClellan spent ten years as founder and President of McClellan Health Systems Inc. (MHS). Through strategic acquisitions and development, MHS grew from a single, skilled-nursing facility to a leading regional healthcare provider with six full-service retirement communities, caring for over 650 residents. The company philosophy was simple: create a supportive family environment where staff members and residents are treated with dignity and respect, and are encouraged to celebrate life each day. This philosophy was emphasized by a commitment to find, develop and retain the best people, and through continual investment in its communities.

As President of MHS, Mr. McClellan was responsible for the direction and leadership of over 700 MHS staff members and an operation budget of over $35 million. MHS offered a full range of senior care options including skilled nursing, rehabilitation, assisted and independent living services.

In June, 2006 Mr. McClellan successfully negotiated the sale of all MHS communities to Trilogy Health Services of Louisville, Kentucky. In 2008, Mr. McClellan founded Azura Living with the purpose of Transforming the Culture of Care.

As a result, he designed, developed, opened and operated Azura of Lakewood — Rehabilitation Suites, a 108 suite skilled-nursing facility providing short-term, transitional rehabilitation services transforming the culture of rehabilitative care in the Denver area.

In addition, he began to branch the exceptional services provided by the Azura Living family of care into serving those with memory loss, creating Azura Memory Care.

Because of its commitment to quality, Azura is actively seeking new development opportunities and management agreements with developers who are in need of their services to manage their senior living communities. Mr. McClellan serves as President and CEO of Azura Living.

Mr. McClellan is a licensed nursing home administrator. He earned his M.B.A from the University of Findlay in 1999 and a B.S. from the Ohio State University in 1995. He is active in several trade organizations including the Colorado Health Care Association, the American Health Care Association, the Alzheimer’s Association, and Young Presidents Organization.

The success of MHS led to several local and regional recognitions, including the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award for Northwest Ohio in 2002. Mr. McClellan and his wife Stacy have four children; Maxwell, Cade, Avery and Emerson. They currently reside in Niwot, Colorado.
