At LifeCare, we are here to create world-class, patient-centered solutions – from the hospital to the home – to every patient, every day. To deliver this level of care, we must be competitive across the post-acute care continuum and continue to diversify our clinical offerings.
To ensure the success of our home health strategy and initiatives, we are pleased to announce the promotion of Kristie Geist to Senior Vice President of Home Health Operations. In her new role, Kristie will serve as the executive for all services and operations, providing support to ensure the achievement of strategic initiatives for our home health operations.
