With the recent growth of Hillcrest Health Services (www.hillcresthealth.com), Hillcrest is happy to announce the addition of two new leaders with years of experience in senior health care.
As Dave Creal accepts a promotion to vice president of facility operations, Michelle Yosick joins Hillcrest as a regional administrator. Yosick will be working with Hillcrest service line administrators on daily operations and quality measures.
“With 20 years of working in the skilled nursing profession and regional experience, we believe Michelle will be a great asset to the facility operations team,” said Creal.
Creal has been with Hillcrest since 2016, when he joined the team as a regional administrator responsible for operations and performance of Hillcrest Firethorn, Hillcrest Mable Rose, Hillcrest Millard and Hillcrest Shadow Lake. In his new position, Creal will join the executive team, becoming responsible for strategic planning for the future growth and development of the entire Hillcrest organization.
