People on the Move – Tricia Hanson / Capital City Nurses
Back to Business at Capital City Nurses
Chevy Chase, MD – After a two year sojourn to the Indonesian island of Bali, former Capital City Nurses Director of Business Development, Tricia Hanson has rejoined the Chevy Chase Maryland based agency. Founder and president, Susan Rodgers, RN said she is excited to have Tricia back with new energy and ideas. “We look forward to teaming up with Tricia again. Over the years, our business has grown primarily through positive client experience and word of mouth advertising. With the exponential increase in home care agencies in our area, Tricia will help us stay focused on defining our services to meet the needs of a changing market.”
While in Bali for her husband’s work doing marine conservation, Ms. Hanson became involved in a number of projects. The most challenging involved developing a model program that received an award by Rotary International. She was project leader of Bali Seminyak Rotary Club’s matching grant that brought local community members and non-governmental organizations together to begin building 14 water wells and provide immunizations to children on the island of Sumba, in the southeastern area of the Indonesian archipelago called East Nusa Tenggara.
Previously, Ms. Hanson worked in aging health and long term care for over 17 years in a variety of settings. In the community arena, she helped establish Elder Health in Baltimore as one of the nation’s first Medicare Advantage programs targeting preventive medical services at community and nursing home residents. Tricia worked as a marketing manager for MedStar Health Visiting Nurse Association’s skilled home health services at Washington Hospital Center and in suburban Maryland. She also worked for a number of years at the Hebrew Home of Greater Washington as their marketing specialist. In this capacity she helped develop rehabilitative therapy programs including the launch of a Stroke Survivors Support Group available for the local community. Tricia was an active committee chair with the Alzheimers’ Association Memory Walk and a board member of GROWS (the Grass Roots Organization for the Well-Being of Seniors). In addition, Tricia co-chaired the Senior Services Committee and earned a certificate from the George Mason University SAGE program in geriatric health. She holds a bachelor of science degree from the University of Wisconsin.
