Health-IT company hires Sunset Valley mayor as vice president of legal affairs


SocialCare, an Austin-based emerging health care technology company, announced June 1 it had hired attorney and Sunset Valley Mayor Rose Cardona as its vice president of legal affairs.

“Rose’s addition to our team will keep us at the forefront of a wide variety of complex legal challenges inherent to the health care-IT space. Her diverse legal experience and ability to effectively manage critical issues among various stakeholders will both enable and accelerate our growth plans for the future,” said Danny Chu, founder and CEO of SocialCare, in a statement.

According to the company, Cardona will execute legal solutions, oversee human resources and company communications, assemble and retain employees, create policies for compliance and regulatory needs, and more.

“Whether in the community or legal space, I have loved serving and collaborating with people to help solve issues that have a direct impact on improving lives and am thrilled to now bring that passion and experience toolbox to SocialCare,” Cardona said in a statement. “SocialCare has an outstanding team of innovators that share that same devotion. I look forward to working with them to not only stay abreast of legal regulations and form new organizational processes, but to also spur dialogue with the city’s health, tech and community leaders to further SocialCare’s work and impact. Together, we will confirm Austin as the undeniable hub for health-IT.”

For six years Cardona ran her own legal practice, focusing on matters related to business, family and immigration. Cardona has also worked at the Capitol and the state’s Supreme Court.
