People on the Move – Capital City Nurses
Chevy Chase, MD —-New faces and projects are shining at Capital City Nurses, a private duty nursing and companion care company headquartered in Chevy Chase, MD. The 32-year-old company has hired talented professionals with a wealth of healthcare experience to attract new clients in the Chevy Chase, Baltimore and Columbia areas, while ensuring that caregivers are better trained than ever before.
Amy Brewer, a graduate in Applied Behavioral Sciences from Johns Hopkins University was recently appointed Regional Manager of the Howard and Baltimore County offices in charge of operations and development. Amy has 15-years experience in the health field and most recently worked for Maxim Healthcare Services.
Wendy Bass and Molly Healy will work as Community Liaisons introducing CCN’s services to area physicians, nursing facilities, hospitals and the general public. Ms. Healy will continue working as a surrogate daughter for the “Daughters Down the Street” program out of the Chevy Chase office, while Ms. Bass will start doing the same out of the Baltimore/Columbia offices. Ms. Bass’s experience with the Baltimore County Provider Council and with the Coalition of Geriatric Services of Howard County will be a great addition to this CCN program. Although fairly established, the CCN “Daughters Down the Street” program is gaining popularity among healthy seniors who are in desperate need of caring companions.
