Introducing SALMON’s third generation…
Third generation siblings Matt, Kate and Andrew came to SALMON Health and Retirement only after starting their professional careers elsewhere. They all started off with different college degrees, in different directions, finding their places within the organization at different points in their work lives.
There wasn’t any pressure to join the “family business” from their parents; all three of them came to know and appreciate the organization by looking at it from the outside as well as the inside. Being part of what their grandparents and parents had built proved irresistible—in thought, word, and deed.
Matt Salmon, PT, MHP, MBA
Chief Executive Officer
Matt began his career with the organization as a physical therapist with Beaumont at Westborough in 1995. Following that, he served as rehabilitation director for the Natick campus, and in the same capacity for all of our campuses. Matt then took on the executive directorship of the Northbridge campus.
After earning Master’s Degrees in both Health Care Professions and Business Administration from Northeastern University in 1999, Matt was promoted in 2006 to SALMON’s vice president of programs, quality and innovation, a position drawing on his unique combination of clinical and business skills.
He was named COO of SALMON Health and Retirement in 2010, and became CEO in 2013. Matt says the constant pursuit of learning prepared him for his role as CEO. “Formal education has always been important to me. I believe you can’t improve or be successful unless you’re learning.”
Matt is married to SALMON’s Director of Rehabilitation Services Kimberly Malloy-Salmon, DPT. They are the parents of two children (and two beloved dogs).
Director of Network Development
Andrew Salmon joined the organization in 2006, after being an administrator for a healthcare corporation. Formerly Northbridge campus executive director, his current position links SALMON to the business community. He manages a referral center, skilled nursing admissions and transfers and maintains relationships with discharge planners, case managers and other health organizations.
Andrew has been trustee and board member of Milford Regional Medical Center and on the boards of Whitin Community Center and Mass. Assisted Living Federation of America. He is a corporator of UniBank and Greater Worcester Community Foundation and chairs the development committee of Blackstone Valley Education Foundation.
Andrew holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Wheaton College. He is a married father of two and an endurance athlete, completing six Ironman Triathlons and the 2013 Ironman World Championship.
Kate Salmon-Robinson, MHSA
Kate worked for a large nursing home company and came to SALMON in 1993 as administrator of Beaumont at Westborough. She assumed the role of director of marketing communications and community relations from 1995 to 2017, where she led campus teams in developing their marketing, sales, and community outreach and SALMON’s Marketing Communications department.
In collaboration with a small team, Kate also helped create SALMON’s Tapestry Program for people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. She has been instrumental in the growth and development of SALMON over the past 25 years, including Whitney Place at Westborough, and our campuses in Natick, Northborough, Worcester, Sharon, and the future, multi-service Medway location.
She currently works behind-the-scenes, bringing her talent for designing senior-friendly buildings and coordinating innovative programs to SALMON’s newer projects.
She holds a Master’s Degree in Health Services Management and Policy from The George Washington University. Kate has served on the boards of directors for The Alzheimer’s Association of Eastern Massachusetts, The Massachusetts Assisted Living Facilities Association and UniBank, and currently sits on SALMON’s board of directors. She is very active in community and industry organizations. Kate is a married mother of two.
