Additionally, in my new role, I will strive to grow and expand our personal care offering and programs into all the markets where we currently provide home health and/or hospice services, which equates to seven locations across four different states. Over the years serving in this dynamic industry, I have built an expertise in the delivery of community-based home care, which encompasses personal care. I look forward to continuing to fortify Jet Health’s place in the market,” Craig said.

Stacie Bratcher, Jet Health chief executive officer, added, “Kara has continually demonstrated her capabilities, industry knowledge and related contacts.
