Sheets Awarded for Leadership of Company and Greater Home Healthcare Industry Throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic
SUNRISE, Fla., Dec. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Interim HealthCare Inc., the nation's leading franchise network of home care, senior care, home health and hospice and healthcare staffing services, announced that its CEO and President, Jennifer Sheets, was awarded Gold in the "CEO Achievers – Advocate of the Year" category at the 9th annual CEO World Awards. The award program celebrates the achievements of leaders, executives, and the management teams behind the year's most outstanding initiatives and achievements, recognizing those who set industry benchmarks for excellence.
With the support of her team, as well as the clinical and operational excellence of the more than 300 Interim HealthCare offices who represent the First in Home Care® brand, Jennifer Sheets has worked relentlessly to uphold the highest standards of safety and care within the home healthcare industry. Jennifer's foresight in early 2020 ensured that Interim HealthCare was well-positioned to provide vital care services during the pandemic, while keeping both staff and patients safe. With her leadership, the company spearheaded the development of detailed guidance and resources to provide care for COVID-19 patients through Interim HealthCare's HomeLife Enrichment® standard of care, which creates a customized care plan to support a patient's full mind, body, spirit and family. In addition, Jennifer and her team established programs that helped facilitate the partnership between hospitals and home healthcare, working to transition medically complex cases from hospitals into home healthcare settings to alleviate recurrent patient surges on ICU resources.
Jennifer has also been integral to the continued success of building awareness of and advocacy for the home healthcare industry throughout 2020 and 2021. Advocating at both the federal and state levels for "essential" worker status of America's 3.2 million home healthcare workers, Jennifer helped ensure these professionals were part of the country's response to and continued recovery from the pandemic. With her team, she also established the industry's only website for sourcing personal protective equipment (PPE) when resources were incredibly difficult to procure, distributing an estimated three million units of critical PPE items to more than 1,000 agencies across the U.S. and five other countries.
"I am humbled to be recognized as an Advocate of the Year by the CEO World Awards," said Jennifer Sheets, CEO and president of Interim HealthCare. "Home healthcare is an indispensable part of our healthcare system and I'm grateful for the opportunity to continue elevating both the industry's unique value and Interim HealthCare's role within it."
