Terri Hobbs was named the executive director of Housecall Providers in July 2011. Her leadership and fiscal management abilities have propelled the organization to its current status: A $10 million nonprofit employing over 90 and serving almost 2,000 homebound patients a year through primary and palliative care and hospice services. Terri has deftly managed the rapid growth of the organization while positioning it to play a much larger role in the medical community, both in Oregon and nationally.
Housecall Providers is one of the 15 sites currently participating in the Independence at Home national demonstration project. First-year data released last summer showed that Housecall Providers achieved the highest cost savings of all the sites at $1,133 per patient per month or 32%. In 2014, Housecall Providers was given the Small Business Innovation Award by the Portland Business Journal and this year the Journal has placed Terri on its Executives to Watch list for 2016.
Pamela Miner, M.D. Medical Director
Dr. Pamela Miner became our second medical director on November 1, 2014, following the retirement of Housecall Providers founder, Dr. Benneth Husted. Pamela received her medical degree from Northwestern University Medical School and completed her residency in internal medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, MA. In 2007, she accepted a Hospice and Palliative Care Fellowship at Harvard University and a year later joined Providence Health and Services in Portland as a palliative and hospice care physician. Since 2012, she has dedicated her time and talent exclusively to palliative care. As an expert in the field, Pamela will guide the expansion of our palliative care services to provide holistic support to patients as they manage the impact of their chronic conditions while further integrating our primary care and hospice programs.
Rebecca Ashling, MSN, RN Hospice Program Director
Rebecca Ashling graduated from Walla Walla College School of Nursing in 1997 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and from the University of Phoenix in 2006 with a Master of Science in Nursing. Prior to nursing school, she worked as a nursing and medical assistant for 13 years. After nursing school, Rebecca entered maternal/child nursing and then discovered her passion for hospice, feeling that a “snapshot” of a patient did not allow her to provide comprehensive care. Rebecca is passionate about all-embracing end-of-life care and making sure that all of the “pieces” fit together for every patient and family.
Nancy Cloak, MD Hospice Medical Director
Dr. Nancy Cloak joined Housecall Providers as a volunteer physician in 2014. A practicing psychiatrist for over a decade, she was drawn to hospice work since serving as a caregiver for a family member. Nancy finds that providing end-of-life care blends her abiding interest in general medicine with the best parts of being a psychiatrist, listening and working with a multidisciplinary team. She assumes the role of Hospice Medical Director after serving since 2014 as a physician with the Housecall Providers hospice team.
Nancy received her medical degree from the University of South Florida and completed her residency at the prestigious Menninger Clinic in Houston, Texas. Following residency, she worked as a psychiatrist with medically complex patients in a variety of settings, including geriatric, palliative care, and eating disorder treatment centers.
Susan Ehrman Director of Development
Susan Ehrman joined Housecall Providers in September 2014 following five years as the Program Director for Women’s Impact fund in Charlotte, NC. Susan brings over 30 years of nonprofit management experience, including fundraising for Tufts University, Emerson College, Harvard Law School, and 15 years as the Director of Development for Hospice & Palliative Care Charlotte Region. She has served on a number of nonprofit boards, including Planned Parenthood Health Systems and Playing for Others in Charlotte. Susan is pleased to be back in her native Portland.
Staci Larson, CPA Director of Finance
Staci Larson joined Housecall Providers in September 2015 as the Director of Finance. A Portland native, she earned an Accounting degree from Linfield College in 1986 and has practiced in the public accounting sector for over 15 years. Staci’s emphasis is in the areas of taxation and accounting for small to mid-sized businesses and served most recently as the controller for a Willamette Valley medical practice. Prior to that position, she spent 10 years as the finance officer for the Energy Loan Program at the Oregon Department of Energy where she managed the complex accounting and finance issues of a multi-million dollar bond and loan portfolio. Staci’s expertise on financial matters will help to guide Housecall Providers through the increasingly complex healthcare environment.
