Renee Clevenger, Health Services Director
When humans experience illness in life, it is not uncommon for it to affect many aspects of their lives. It is my passion to provide healing, guidance and coordination of healthcare needs to all whom we serve. The focus on wellness through monitoring, education and guidance to ensure our clients are the “best selves” they can be.
I began my nursing career as a new LPN graduate working the midnight shift as a charge nurse in 2001. I returned to school to pursue my RN degree and accomplished this in 2005. Upon graduating and receiving my RN license, I was promoted to the DON of a large ICF/DD facility. I successfully revised and implemented corporate policies, as well as managing medical staff and departmental purchasing and served as the Program Director for the 105 hour Nurse Aide program. In my currently position I hold the title of Health Services Director. Even with the title, I prefer to be patient centered and focus on the Healthcare coordination aspects of the job. Health Care Coordination is an integrated plan which monitors health services that customers receive. HCC services are comprised of a number of strategies, approaches, and methodology. While LifeDesigns’ refers to its program as “Health Care Coordination” the services are designed to meet the needs of the individual.
