American Advantage Home Care, a full-service home health care agency based in Dearborn, announced the promotion of Andrea MacLeod to the role of director of nursing.
In her new position, MacLeod is responsible for the quality of care provided to clients, which includes overseeing patient services and supervising clinical personnel. She joined American Advantage in 2021 as nurse and assistant director of nursing.
“Caring for people is Andrea’s calling,” says Cleamon Moorer Jr., president and CEO of American Advantage. “Her broad, diverse experience, combined with her empathy and compassion for others, has prepared her to meet the unique challenges of providing superior care for American Advantage Home Care’s clients.”
For nearly 20 years MacLeod has provided health care to patients of hospitals, clinics, private practitioners, and home health care agencies. She has worked as a registered nurse or nurse practitioner at several local health care organizations.
“I love providing our patients with the best possible care,” says MacLeod. “One reason I chose American Advantage is our alignment in providing care holistically. We step into our patients’ homes officially as a nurse, but at that point we become their advocates. It’s a family-oriented view that’s supported by consistency of care and open and robust communication with the patient’s doctors and medical team.”
With headquarters in Dearborn and regional administrative hubs in Grand Blanc, Detroit, and Trenton, American Advantage serves 10 counties — Monroe, Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Shiawassee, Genesee, Lapeer, Saginaw and eastern Washtenaw and Livingston.
