Mr. Bryan G. Barrish is a Principal and a Managing member of the newly created Generations Healthcare Network LLC, a premier healthcare consulting organization servicing client facilities specializing in skilled rehabilitation and clinical nursing services. Inspired by family and his inherent sensitivity to the healthcare needs of society’s most vulnerable – the elderly, the incapacitated and the mentally ill, he was drawn to a career in long term care working first in many supportive positions and then culminating as a healthcare facility Administrator. As an established and experienced healthcare provider, Mr. Barrish had a vision of expansion and vertical healthcare integration. In this light, he decided in 1991 to establish SIR Management Inc. a nursing facility consulting company with an innovative behavioral healthcare specialty component.
Today, SIR Management’s expert consultants continue in their specialty capacity to represent five Specialized Mental Healthcare and Rehabilitation (SMHRF) facilities located in Illinois, while Generations’ consultants are excited to focus their respective expertise on supporting skilled and rehab systems of care. The spectrum of SIR and Generations’ consulting ranges from providing guidance in program development to fiscal, operational, and facility environmental management.
Mr. Barrish enjoys a long and successful healthcare career where he amassed over the course of the last 35 years a vast and comprehensive array of operational, fiscal, and efficiency management experience in both post-acute and behavioral healthcare. He is responsible for the development and oversight management of Generations’ consulting standards for its skilled and independent living facility clients, both in Illinois and Indiana.
Mr. Barrish continues to honor his long standing commitment to improving clinical and behavioral healthcare delivery systems, and also enhancing their respective facility environments such that they are more consistent with current home-like standards, as well as more inviting and comfortable for both residents and staff. And, as he exclaims, “Now is the time for change for if nothing changes, nothing changes.”
