President & CEO Greg Pang hits 15 year milestone
Join us in congratulating our President & CEO Greg Pang on 15 years with Community Home Health & Hospice!
In 2005 Greg was named executive director upon the retirement of Community’s founder Lorraine Berndt. Under his watch, Community’s care expanded. The number of staff employed by Community has more than doubled in the past 15 years, to keep up with the needs of the growing elderly population requiring care in their homes. Greg expects this need to continue increasing rapidly as the COVID pandemic encourages home-based care rather than institutional-based care.
“I think we all want to feel like the work we do is meaningful,” Greg said of his 15th anniversary. “That’s why I love coming to work here—it’s all meaningful. It’s all completely tied to patient care.”
Going forward, Greg’s sights are set on making sure Community’s skilled and dedicated staff expands at the pace of the communities it serves.
“Cowlitz, Clark and the rest of the counties we serve continue to grow and we’re dedicated to growing right along with them,” Greg said of his vision for Community’s future. “I’ve watched our incredible staff bring exceptional care and peace of mind to patients and their families for 15 years now and it’s my dream for this agency to see that level of care affecting as many people as possible.”
A native of Washington State, Greg now has almost 45 years’ experience providing compassionate, community-based care. His prior experience included home health and hospice services provided by Good Samaritan Home Health & Hospice in Puyallup, WA and Group Health Cooperative in Seattle, WA
Greg earned a bachelor’s degree in speech communication and a master’s degree in health administration at the University of Washington (Seattle, WA). Certified as a home/hospice care executive, Greg is published in professional journals and has presented at national, state and local conferences. He is passionate about providing community-based services to the growing elderly population so they may “age in place” and remain in their homes as long as possible.
