A happily married husband and father, Andrew’s career started as an ER nurse and went on to include a stint as a clinical coordinator and Nursing Administrative Supervisor of Spartanburg Regional Medical Center. It was during his time at the hospital that Andrew observed too many patients that could have avoided a stay in the hospital if they had more care at home. Familiar with Home Health and Hospice, he knew those programs provided a great service and knowledgeable staff but were limited to very short occasional home visits. Elite Home Care was born to fill in the gaps when neither family, Home Health nor Hospice could be there. Andrew likes to think of our staff “Like your surrogate family with medical training” and will be by your side as long as you need and want us there. Andrew has dedicated his education and career to the safety and well-being of others and through Elite Home Care that vision will continue.
