Simione, III, Managing Principal, Simione Healthcare Consultants.   


“Success in home care and hospice requires that agencies have the right people, and our goal is to help develop current and future leaders in the field.  We are pleased to welcome the team of Healthcare Concepts to Simione as part of our Exact Recruiting solution.  They will help us build upon our long history of collaboration with industry recruiters to facilitate a higher level of quality, efficiency and financial performance in home care and hospice,” Bill Simione said.


Simione Principal Eric Scharber, who leads all talent management activities, said, “We are pleased to welcome the team of Healthcare Concepts to expand our efforts and help clients develop effective talent strategies to achieve more.  They will further enhance our highly seasoned team with an ever-widening network of contacts and resources to provide the right talent for home care and hospice, and help providers thrive in today’s increasingly competitive healthcare marketplace.  We all share a passion for finding high-quality professionals and helping organizations find the right fit for carrying out their mission, vision and values for success,” Scharber said.

Her referral network is among the most trusted and diverse in the home care and industry.  “Our focus has always been to offer seasoned, proven talent for our clients, and deliver a level of personal service that brings benefits to organizations looking to improve their clinical and financial performance. We are pleased to continue that commitment as a part of Simione and its talent solution of Exact Recruiting.”
