This has been an exciting time for Fazzi. We have grown, added a number of incredibly strong, seasoned and passionate staff and have added new programs and services, particularly those related to Value-Based Purchasing. With growth comes the need to strengthen our overall leadership structure. Within this context, I am pleased to announce that Tim Ashe, RN, MS, MBA has been promoted to Chief Operating Officer and is now responsible for the firm’s day to day leadership.
Tim joined Fazzi in 2006 and became a Partner in 2007. Since that time, he has led our Operational Consulting Division to provide organizational, operational, turn around, and change management services to home care and hospice agencies across the country. Under his leadership, Fazzi has helped hundreds of agencies improve outcomes and profitability through best practices in organizational structure, clinical and operational processes, and new models for staffing, supervision and care management. More recently, Tim also assumed responsibility for our Outsourced Billing, Finance and Information Technology divisions. A long-time leader in the field of home care and hospice, Tim’s expertise and career has included a unique blend of clinical, operational, fiscal and academic roles. He is a frequent presenter at national and state conferences and is often asked to contribute to industry forums. Tim is also the Co-Director of the 2016-2017 National Home Care and Hospice State of the Industry Study.
As for me, I will continue in my role as Fazzi’s Managing Partner. But in transferring the leadership of the firm’s daily operations to Tim; I will be able devote more time to our future investments as well as to national and international community based care issues that are clearly emerging. As you can imagine, I am extremely proud of what we have accomplished and contributed to our industry thus far, and I’m also incredibly excited about what the future holds.
Also, during this time of transition, I’d like to take the opportunity to share with you our new video of the “Fazzi Story”. I hope you’ll take a look and of course feel free to pass the link on to anyone you think might like to learn a bit more about us. You can view it by clicking here.
