Traditions Health Adds Handful Of Home Health Veterans To Leadership Team

Traditions Health has added five new names to its leadership team, many of which are home health veterans from companies such as Enhabit Inc. (NYSE: EHAB) and Alternate Solutions Health Network.

The Nashville-based Traditions offers home health, hospice and palliative care services to more than 25,000 patients a year across more than 130 locations in 18 states.

Backed by Dorilton Capital Advisors, Traditions has been among the more active acquirers at times. In March 2022, the company acquired five hospice entities in California and Nevada.


Lynn Robbins, the VP of marketing, told Home Health Care News that the company’s most recent changes took place over the span of a few months at the end of 2023.

Those new hires are:

  • Jennifer Bash; VP of sales for the home health division
  • Hannah Echols; VP of clinical applications and business intelligence
  • Kimberley Boyd; VP of operations for the hospice division and oversight of Texas and Georgia
  • Michael Craig; VP of sales for the hospice division and oversight of Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and South Carolina
  • Jay Henderson; VP of sales for the hospice division and oversight of Arizona, California and Oregon

David Klementz, Traditions Health CEO, left Encompass Health (NYSE: EHC) to lead the company.


After a very busy acquisition period, Traditions put the break on inorganic growth and instead started to focus on folding in new acquisitions and getting everyone on the same page culturally.

“We intentionally paused acquisitions in 2022,” Klementz previously told HHCN. “Partly because the foundation of the organization, which is not where I wanted it to be. We could not keep piling on other cultures, with other missions, without addressing that.”

Named as one of HHCN’s home health providers to watch in 2023, Traditions has also been at the forefront of investing in palliative care.

As fee-for-service Medicare margins shrink, Traditions is hoping palliative care can serve as a glue for value-based care arrangements.
