Caris Healthcare promotes Angela Berkshire to Central Regional Director of Clinical Care. Angela joined Caris in March of 2012 as RN Care Manager in the Crossville, Tennessee office, and in less than one year was named Crossville Patient Care Manager. Shortly after, Angela began leading both the Crossville and Cookeville offices as Patient Care Manager. She was then promoted to Cookeville Administrator in 2014. When Angela first became Administrator, the office cared for 18 patients a day. Angela’s leadership skills, combined with the hard work of a dedicated team, grew the office to care for 45 patients a day.
Angela received three Caris World Class Awards in her five years at Caris. In 2014, she was awarded Central Region Employee of the Year and Overall Employee of the Year. In 2016, she was awarded Central Region Administrator of the Year. Angela’s coworkers describe her as a fierce advocate for patients and her team. Known for her professionalism, work ethic and personable personality, Angela is expected to surpass expectations as the Central Regional Director of Clinical Care.
With a passion for excellent patient care, Angela stated, “It has been a pleasure to work at the Caris Cookeville office, but I am excited about the opportunity to work with all of the offices in the Central Region. I feel strongly about upholding Caris’ vision of being a World Class Hospice and I look forward to getting to know more of the Caris team who share this vision.”
