Gosnold on Cape Cod President and CEO Raymond Tamasi announced that he will be transitioning out of day-to-day operational roles for the organization, now focusing his efforts on broader innovation. Tamasi will remain as president of Gosnold, and an individual with whom he has worked on projects in the past, Richard Curcuru, has been hired to take over as CEO.
Curcuru most recently has served as executive director for behavioral medicine for Tenet Healthcare's Northeast region. Prior to that, he worked as executive director of behavioral health at Cape Cod Healthcare, which placed him alongside Tamasi in efforts to improve overall clinical services in the region.
The transition at Gosnold will be phased in over the next six months, Tamasi says. Curcuru begins work at Gosnold on April 18.
Tamasi says the move reflects two primary goals: normal succession planning for the organization; and an effort to devote more time to contributing toward broader advances in addiction treatment—innovations that also will help Gosnold in the long run. One area of emphasis on Tamasi's part, for example, will involve exploring ways to avert hospitalization and rehospitalization for those with addictions.
“This is about trying new ideas and finding new ways,” says Tamasi. “The continuum of care is long here, so Gosnold offers a fertile lab to test out ideas.”
