PERA
LEADERS

What sets Pera Healthcare
apart from the others?

We have a deep understanding of clinical and business operating models, analytics, and financial management.

Pera Healthcare was founded when visionaries in the hospice industry joined with a leading group of capital investors who had a joint mission to improve the end-of-life experience.
This perfect blend of operational experience and financial backing makes it possible for our partners to achieve success.

Our vision is accomplished by developing competent employees who ensure that a patient and their family’s needs and concerns are addressed at every visit, that caregivers are given confidence in the care that they give, and that nothing is overlooked at a visit…ever.

We have been in your shoes! As business owners and hospice experts with over 150 combined years of experience, we understand all aspects of operating a business, as well as the constant and ever-changing challenges that owners face. By operating multiple businesses, from inception to stable, sustainable award-winning companies, we can offer invaluable insight and support in the clinical, financial, operational, and growth-related challenges that you may be facing. Allowing you to focus on what matters most to you.

We want to help others reach their dream and desired goal! It IS possible. We can be the support that you need. You tell us your needs and goals and we will skyrocket you there. We have the financial resources and experts in the industry to provide support where YOU WANT it. We will not plan on changing what you have going or taking over, but enhancing what you already have, how you see fit! You are in charge. We just want to assist you in getting there.

What it boils down to is that our team has a passion for people. Our mission is to bridge the employee and patient experience through unmatched quality and culture. We empower our partners with the education, resources, tools, and support needed to achieve their mission. In return, those partners are able to elevate the patient’s experience.

We can help you too! Reach out today to start the conversation.

Drea has worked in the Human Resources field for the last 7 years. She is married and has 3 incredible children. As a family they love camping, fishing, and anything else that involves being outdoors. In her spare time, she loves to play ultimate frisbee and dabbles in woodwork.

Throughout her various roles of management, teaching preschool, and administrative work, helping people has always been the common tread of what she loves to do. This includes connecting with people, finding areas to build them up, or finding ways to help them be successful. She started down the HR path in 2015 with Heart 'n Home Hospice. She fell in love with HR as she learned it was much more than just administrative work, it is about connection. It is connecting employees and the company with one mission. It is about what a company can do to help their employees feel confident, love what they do, and to grow their capabilities. It starts with hiring the right people and getting them in the right seats all the way through processes and education, down to terminations when it is no longer the right fit. Drea feels incredibly grateful to serve alongside a close-knit team of talented individuals who have a similar passion for helping others.
