Mark Hamman has been named president of Pediatric Home Service(PHS), an independent pediatric homecare company that provides home-based health care services to medically-fragile children. Hamman succeeds founder and longtime PHS president, Susan Wingert, who has transitioned to CEO. Wingert will focus on advocacy, legislative and policy issues relative to pediatric home health care and plans to officially retire from the company in May 2012.
The announcement comes following the completion of an innovative succession plan that has allowed Hamman to gain a thorough understanding of PHS and the home health care industry by stepping into the shoes of key employees and assuming their duties. Since 2009, Hamman has rotated in and out of every PHS division, filling in for each senior level department director for a three-month period.
“I had the benefit of learning the business from the ground up,” said Wingert, a respiratory therapist who founded the company 21 years ago. “The Senior Leadership team of Directors and I wanted my successor to have a similar opportunity to learn about every aspect of the operation.”
Hamman joined PHS in 2004 as a sales and contract manager after 11 years as a territory sales manager with a Twin Cities organization. As president he has taken over the day-to-day operations of Pediatric Home Service. “PHS is an incredible organization made up of outstanding people,” said Hamman. “Their commitment and compassion for PHS and the kids in our care over the last two decades is truly inspiring. I am excited to have the opportunity to help them deliver that same high quality care and customer service for the next 20 years.”
Pediatric Home Service, based in St. Paul, Minn., is a full-service, independent pediatric homecare company committed to taking care of the child by providing specialized health care services to medically-fragile, technology-supported kids in their home. Since 1990, PHS has partnered with health care professionals and family caregivers to deliver home health care to children with special needs.
