Kansas Masonic Home's new CEO comes from within

The Kansas Masonic Home has named Matthew Bogner as its new chief executive.

Bogner replaces Shawn Sullivan, who left the post in January after Gov. Sam Brownback appointed him Kansas secretary of aging.

Bogner has been with KMH since 2008, most recently as administrator of the KMH Health Care Pavilion.

"Matthew enjoys the full confidence and support of the board," said KMH board president T. Michael Fegan, in a news release. "His experience at KMH makes him uniquely qualified to lead as we continue to physically redesign our campus and expand our existing services."

KMH is a 115-year-old senior living campus that has more than 240 residents in independent, assisted-living and skilled nursing.
