“Angie’s collaborative efforts have significantly contributed to increasing operational efficiency,” Traditions Health COO Tony Maxwell said in a statement. “Her dedication to continuous improvement and her ability to inspire her team have been pivotal in driving success.”


Based in Nashville, Tennessee, Traditions Health is a home health, hospice and palliative care provider with a footprint that spans across 130 locations and 18 states. It cares for more than 25,000 patients per year.

The company also announced a new VP of finance last month.

Collins was originally with Trinity Valley Home Health – as director of nursing – before the company was acquired by Traditions Health. She has been promoted multiple times within Traditions.


“I’m very excited for this next chapter of my career with Traditions and cannot wait to share my passion for home health,” she said in a statement.

“We’re thrilled to bring Donna on board to serve in the pivotal function of setting Interim HealthCare’s clinical direction,” Interim HealthCare President and CEO Paul Mastrapa said in a statement. “Clinical care is at the core of everything we do, and Donna’s background and track record of success make her uniquely suited to work with our franchisees across the nation to further the company’s long tradition of clinical excellence.”

A part of Caring Brands International, the Sunrise, Florida-based Interim HealthCare is a home care and home health care franchise brand with over 330 locations across the U.S.

A Place For Mom’s next CEO

The senior care referral company A Place For Mom (APFM) has announced that Tatyana Zlotsky will be its next CEO, with current CEO Larry Kutscher set to step away on May 2.

Kutscher will become the chairman of the company’s board of directors.
