Home-based hospice Salus Hospice and Home Health has announced the appointment of Montgomery (Monty) Ostrander as Director of Business Development. Mr. Ostrander will be responsible for continuing the company’s growth, and expanding its footprint and professional partnerships.
"Monty's value was immediately apparent. I'm excited he's joining our team," said Salus President Boad Swanson. "His passion for seniors and his dedication to the mission of hospice make him an invaluable asset. Monty's contributions to Salus will improve lives as we continue to support families and offer them an innovative, responsive and personalized hospice care experience."
Mr. Ostrander has more than a decade of experience within the palliative care industry, with a genuine understanding of the benefits of a continuum of care. He most recently held a sales position with Hospice of the North Coast in Carlsbad, California, and is a former owner of Tree of Life Elder Care, running residential care facilities for the elderly and dementia patients.
"This incredible brand has limitless potential. Real opportunities exist to develop community partnerships and share the mission of hospice care. With that, more families will be able to take advantage of all that hospice provides - essentially free help, covered by Medicare and most insurance plans - help when families need it most," said Mr. Ostranger. "Hospice provides comfort so that the passing of a loved one is less traumatic. Reducing trauma associated with loss means everything. It helps families to move forward in a more positive way."
