“Leadership is not magnetic personality, that can just as well be a glib tongue. It is not “making friends and influencing people”, that is flattery. Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to higher sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.”
— Peter F. Drucker
True leadership demands creative thinkers, fearless leaders and a corporate culture that embraces change, in order to raise a person’s performance to a higher standard resulting in the best care available for our patients. SA Nurses Home Health continuously strives for excellence in patient care through its leadership expectations.
