BOISE, Idaho … October 25, 2021 … Jet Health, Inc., a leading regional provider of home health and hospice services, announced today the appointment of Kara Craig to the newly created position of vice president of personal care.

Personal care may include, but is not limited to, homemaker duties, light chores, home maintenance, respite care, case management and companionship. Her responsibilities in this new capacity include oversight of administrative staff, increasing brand awareness, expanding Jet Health’s network of caregiver employees at each location, home care regulation compliance and growing and strengthening personal care programs across the Company’s service areas.
This appointment marks a promotion for Craig as she served as executive director since April 2020 for First Choice Home Health and Hospice, a Boise, Idaho-based home health and hospice company owned by Jet Health, Inc.

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

We look forward to the impact she will have on the expansion of our personal care offering in the key markets Jet Health serves, which include Idaho, New Mexico, Colorado and Texas.”
