KVNA’s Chief Operating Officer, Shawn Zwirgzdas, credits the honor to the dedication of the home care department’s leadership. “While contending with ever changing Medicare regulations and increasing paperwork demands, the homecare team is a tireless champion for patients and their families,” said Zwirgzdas. “Each member, from the Director of Clinical Services to the billing department, nurses, therapists, home health aides and medical social worker, works to ensure each patient receives the care and resources needed to improve their individual outcomes.” This is the second consecutive year that KVNA has been recognized as a top 100 agency. KVNA is the only independent, nonprofit agency from Wisconsin to be honored.
