There is a perception that exists about hospice care. At AseraCare, we are changing that perception by Making Moments Matter in the lives of people with terminal illness as well as their loved ones. There is also a perception about sales. We’re changing that, too. As an Area Director of Business Development, you will engage your leadership skills and expertise with people in the healthcare system and in your community. You will bring about meaningful change by increasing both awareness and access to this important healthcare service. Along the way, you will join a team that is committed to serving people at the most vulnerable and sacred time of their lives. We are passionate about what we do, committed to leading in our industry and community, and competitive about the way we operate. We have an opportunity for a results-driven, goal-oriented leader to connect their success story with ours.

Ensuring that high-quality hospice care is accessible to patients and their loved ones at end-of-life would be your commitment as an Area Director of Business Development at AseraCare Hospice. You would execute this commitment through ongoing leadership of hospice sales professionals who represent AseraCare at the local agency level. This execution will include the successful development and application of data-centric growth strategies; the successful implementation of deliberate and sequential growth tactics; and the crafting of timely and articulate hospice messaging. You would apply this approach within a collaborative and creative leadership environment that includes a variety of interdisciplinary functions. We look forward to speaking with you about this exciting opportunity to join our excellent business development leadership team.
