AccentCare Expands Executive Team to Support Growth
AccentCare announced the addition of two new executive positions to accommodate the health care trend of greater post-acute care coordination with health systems.
The company is using the new hires to expand and support its joint venture partnerships and its rapid growth fueled by home health care.
Dallas-based AccentCare is a leader in post-acute health care, as well as specialized care management prior to acute episodes. AccentCare has over 20,000 professionals in more than 160 locations across 12 states, serving over 95,000 individuals. The company also has 30 different partnerships with insurance companies, physician groups and major health systems including its joint ventures.
AccentCare has developed and expanded its joint ventures over the past few years including its partnerships with Asante, UCLA Health and UC San Diego Health.
Timothy Wons has joined as the senior vice president of partnership development. In this role, he will develop new partnerships with health systems on a national level.
AccentCare also added Tim Boes as the senior vice president and general manager of home health. He will be responsible for clinical and sales operations in home health, according to a press release. The home health division had previously been managed by six regional leaders, one of whom was Boes.
“It’s an exciting time at AccentCare, as we are better equipped than ever with leadership, technology, systems and services to deliver excellent patient outcomes as well as foster and grow strategic partnerships with health systems,” AccentCare CEO Steve Rodgers said in the press release.
New Administrator Named at Heart & Soul Hospice of Farmington
Traery Noubarian, RN, will succeed Rodney Quinton as the administrator for Heart & Soul Hospice of Farmington, Missouri.
Heart & Soul Hospice is a non-for-profit Medicare-certified hospice agency. The hospice is an extension of Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America’s (PMMA) services to seniors in Kansas and Missouri. PMMA is the hospice’s parent company.
Wichita, Kansas-based PMMA is a senior living community that operates 17 campuses in Kansas and Missouri. The nonprofit company serves more than 2,400 residents and employs nearly 2,200 people.
Noubarian began her career with PMMA at Farmington Presbyterian Manor as a nursing assistant. She started working with hospice in 2005 as a CNA and assisting with medical records, according to the Farmington Press.
“Traery has a passion for hospice care,” Jeanne Gerstenkorn, PMMA’s vice president of health and wellness, told Farmington Press. “We are exited to move her into the administrator position.”
Former Heart & Soul Hospice administrator Quinton is moving into a regional director role for hospice services at PMMA. He joined Heart & Soul in 2006 and was named an administrator three years later.
Quinton will oversee Heart & Soul locations in Farmington, Missouri and Wichita, Kansas.
