The Business Development team is excited to welcome Darren Hubbard, Regional Director of Business Development, to LifeCare. With more than 20 years’ experience in health care, Hubbard is a great addition to the LMS team and our West region.
“I started my career doing histopathology and autopsies before moving to LTAC, wound care and hyperbaric medicine,” he says. “Additionally, I worked for Zig Zigler (prior to his passing) teaching sales, presentation skills and leadership development to Fortune 500 healthcare companies.”
In his new role, Hubbard will provide support to the West region’s Business Development teams to exceed budgeted admissions and earnings through training, strategic planning and coaching. “With the changes in the LTAC space, it’s so important that LifeCare is investing in our people and thinking outside of the box with specialized programs,” he says. “These are imperative in the new LTAC paradigm.”
Hubbard enjoys working in health care because of the direct impact it’s had on his life and that of his family. “I joined the LTAC space after my grandfather was weaned from a ventilator and given seven additional years of life. We treat patients at a time of crisis who need extended acute care; so when we can walk our patients out the door it is incredibly rewarding.”
When not at work, Hubbard enjoys spending time with his family. “I am passionate about the outdoors and travel. My children and I adore camping, skiing, hiking and travel.” He also enjoys cooking with his father and son, both chefs.
