Faith Scott has worked in a leadership role in the Home Health industry for more than thirty years. She successfully built Visiting Nurse Association of Northern New Jersey, started a private duty company, and started a certified hospice. In addition, she has grown community based services under several grant programs including an Adult Day Care Center, to sustain elderly living in the community. Scott has worked to identify data to use as key analytics to build strong metrics to drive business. She is strong in strategic planning and adopts innovative business solutions to sharpen organizational performance.
More importantly, Scott advocates for patient free choice and the right for Visiting Nurse Associations to compete in the new marketplace as health care reform evolves and post acute care needs emerge. She advocates for all patients to have access to services which will enable them to live freely and with dignity to the end of their lives, in their own homes. Additionally, she advocates for nurses to excel to a heightened level of professionalism, where their voice and accountability are at the planning table to shape a model of health care in the United States. Lastly, she advocates that as American tax payers feel the pressure to constrain Medicare spending the application of home health is viewed more widely as a solution which also enhances quality of life.
