Lesley Cryer, RN, has been the Executive Director of Presbyterian Home Healthcare services since 1999. Services include many special programs, a statewide network, case management and palliative care in addition to home care and hospice. She has been in health care administration for 20 plus years.
“I am passionate regarding my belief in home care’s being the health care model chosen by the majority of patients when they have a choice. This coupled with my concern about the nursing shortage caused me to avidly look for options to the then current models of care provision. Telehealth became my leading choice.”
“I learned not to underestimate the time involved in obtaining optimal technology use—especially when you are an early adopter.”
