All Care is thrilled to welcome back Kristina Neumann as Vice President of Hospice & Palliative Care. In 2005, Neumann was part of the team that launched All Care’s hospice program and over the following 12 years expanded its service area and program offerings. Working her way up from operations manager to operations director, to hospice director and then to vice president of hospice services, Neumann’s vision and leadership led the team through unprecedented growth while providing excellent clinical care, and far exceeding outcomes and patient satisfaction goals.
During her time with All Care, Neumann was a strong advocate for driving positive change within the organization by working collaboratively with leadership and clinicians alike. She has a proven track record of making improvements in daily operations, implementing innovative solutions and evolving practices to support and enhance the delivery of care.
In 2017, adventure called Neumann out west and she took a leadership position with multi-state hospice provider. While there, some of Neumann’s more notable accomplishments included the creation and implementation of a palliative support program that spanned Arizona, Colorado and Texas. While COVID put pressure on staffing nationwide, resulting in many other providers closing their doors, Neumann was able to retain and grow her hospice team while tripling the number of patients served in just one year.
“I couldn’t be happier to be back home at All Care,” said Neumann. “We have an incredible team here and I’m excited to build on that foundation. The last moments of life are so incredibly important, and what a privilege and honor we have to be a part of that.” Neumann went on to say. “It’s raw. It’s real. It’s a roller coaster of emotions…and we have the resources to support not only the patient, but the entire family. Unfortunately, all too often we’re called in when there are only days or even hours of life left. The saying goes that ‘it’s always too early until it’s too late’. My goal is to fix that. There is so much more that we can do for our patients and their families to make every moment count, because, ultimately, that is what’s most important.”
