Andrea Hays - Regional Director of Business Development

“Promoting Positive Growth in Healthcare and our Centers by Working Closely with Area Hospitals and our Communities.”

If you are a healthcare professional in the skilled and long term care industry in the Kansas City Area, you’ve likely heard of Andrea Hays. She has been a Kansas girl her entire life. She brings twenty years of healthcare experience to the table and knows the Kansas metro area market like the back of her hand.

Andrea graduated from Missouri Western State University with her Bachelors of Science degree and her passion for healthcare and working with older adults became an instant obsession; however, it didn’t start there. Two years before she graduated, she worked as a rehab tech in an Alzheimer’s center while attending two years at the community college.  On her first day, she knew she had a special connection with seniors.

Andrea worked fourteen years for Providence Health Systems directly after graduating from college as the Recreational Therapy Director, Marketing Coordinator and Director of Volunteer Services.  She then went on to work in the home healthcare arena as an Area Manager and Account Executive where she quickly earned a preceptor title and successfully drove business while training new hires.  After four years in home health, she decided to come back to the skilled and long term care industry where she continues to work as a Regional Director of Business Development.

When Andrea decides to slow down just a tiny bit on occasion, you will find her at the lake with her family or taking long jogs with her dog.  She loves sports, watching her children’s sports activities and is highly competitive.  She has been married for twenty years and has three children which she considers her biggest accomplishments.

Andrea’s favorite quote is, “There is no I in the word Team”She loves team building and working side by side with her staff.

She is actively involved in her community and the American Red Cross in which she is Co- Founder of the “Train it Forward Foundation”  a program that helps spread the importance ofCPR and how it saves lives.

Andrea’s zest for life is contagious and her goal is to make a difference big or small in healthcare and in people’s lives.
