Absolute Home Health & Hospice Staff Members Honored at Annual Ramp Banquet

by Whitney J. Prather, Director of Communications

Remarkable Leadership. Abundantly Helpful. Extraordinary Dedication.

These are the phrases used to describe Allison Crock, Mandi Hostetler, and Renee Steurer. Each of them were honored at the annual ramp banquet in March.

The ramp banquet is an annual opportunity for The Schroer Group (TSG) to bring together its companies – Altercare, Absolute, and Avalon. The event allows us to spotlight and celebrate employees that have done an exemplary job throughout the year.

Our Strength Is In Our People

We’re all aware of the innate challenges in the healthcare industry – it’s par for the course, right? But that doesn’t mean it has to be a thankless job. Events like the ramp banquet, help us say thank you and show our appreciation. After all, what sets us apart from the rest, is our people.

Strong people make strong teams, strong teams make strong companies, and strong companies make strong communities.

(Nominations submitted by Mike McConnell, VP of Home Health & Hospice)

Allison Crock, RN, clinical resource manager

Alli began her nursing career with Summit Acres Home Care over 13 years ago as a home health case manager. She provided excellent care to her patients and was always a wonderful support to their families. Alli has worked as a mentor for many new nurses and has always had a strong desire to educate and support others. Alli has played a key role in the implementation of three different software systems and has grown into a strong leader. She provides clinical, operational and professional nursing leadership. Alli devotes her time and energy to address and overcome barriers that our clinicians face and works collaboratively with home health and hospice leadership to ensure that the care provided to our patients and families meets the highest standards. She truly is our staff’s biggest cheerleader and we are very lucky to have her on our team.

Amanda Hostetler, STNA

Mandi joined our home health team as an STNA back in February of 2015. In September of that year, she decided to take her talents to our Hospice division. She’s a breath of fresh air and a bright spot in her patient’s day. She goes above and beyond the call of duty and her patients and families love her for that. Whenever needs arise, Mandi graciously accepts additional assignments and never complains. She does whatever is asked of her and is always willing to do more. With her infectious smile, a positive attitude, she is a role model for others. Hospice care takes a special talent that not everyone has. Mandi Hostetler has this talent and she embodies the “Hospice Heart,” and shares this with our patients every single day.

Renee Steurer, manager of staffing and recruitment  

Renee has been an employee of our company for 10 years. Over the last three years, Renee was an account executive for Absolute Home Health, where she successfully contributed to census growth and the development of new markets. More recently, Renee took on a new role as manager of recruitment and staffing for Absolute Health Services. Renee’s focus is to help our facilities and companies find qualified individuals who can contribute to the exceptional care we provide every day. Renee lives by the rule of always helping others. She does this in life and she has made this her mission through her work. Her recent dedication to providing staffing to our nursing facilities is just one more way Renee is constantly contributing to the overall success of our company.
