In her new position, De Sonia is responsible for the quality of care provided to patients. She will oversee patient services and supervise clinical personnel.
“Sarah is a compassionate, highly effective leader who is uniquely qualified to support American Advantage Home Care in its mission of providing quality, patient-focused care,” says Cleamon Moorer Jr., president.
Moorer added that De Sonia was instrumental in quickly enhancing safety procedures in wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“She managed care services down to the last detail based on her in-depth knowledge of patients, their living situations, and the agency’s skilled caregivers,” he says. “The resulting protocols have helped protect the health of employees, patients, and their families.”
De Sonia has about 17 years of experiencing in health care, specializing in home care. She joined American Advantage in 2019 as assistant director of nursing.
