Senior Vice President of Business Development and General Manager (New Jersey)
An information technology veteran with 30-plus years of IT experience, Nelson Gomes serves as Senior Vice President of Business Development and General Manager (New Jersey) for award-winning, healthcare-focused managed services provider Medicus IT (MIT). The Healthcare IT Expert, MIT serves technology-dependent healthcare practices in ways that align with the ways they work: proactively, preventively, and with a sense of forethought that supports growth and business continuity in addition to compliance. MIT was named to the Inc. Top 5000 fastest-growing private companies, and made MSPmentor’s “501 Leading MSP Organizations” lists five consecutive years, in addition to a wealth of other accolades.
Nelson brings impressive healthcare industry knowledge and experience to his position at MIT, where he focuses on enhancing client relations, bolstering the company’s healthcare industry visibility, and helping more and larger practices get preventive with their IT rather than triage it. Before his work with the company, he spent more than 20 years building long-term relationships with clients, healthcare organizations and partner vendors as founder and leader of PriorityOne Group (P1). Founded in 1997, P1 was an award-winning Rutherford, N.J.-based provider of integrated managed IT services to healthcare organizations. Key to P1’s success was Nelson’s and the company’s unwavering commitment to core values that guided the company’s decision-making. In 2019, P1 merged with MIT.
Frequently called upon for his healthcare IT expertise by professional groups, associations and publications, Nelson is recognized as an industry thought leader. He speaks regularly at national, state and local healthcare industry events and is also a frequent source and contributor to well-known publications.
Outside of giving back to the healthcare industry via his work, philanthropy is important to Nelson. He serves on the St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center Foundation Board, as an officer for the New York chapter of Ingram Micro Trust X Alliance NY, and oversees MIT’s participation in numerous community service activities throughout the New York/New Jersey metro area
