“Every role at Legacy has an impact on our patients’ lives and gives that individual the opportunity to make a difference each day,” said Jeff Ryan, Chief Executive Officer. “Compliance, doing everything right, especially when no one is looking is a non-negotiable in health care.

Most recently, Dwyer was responsible for oversight of the compliance program for CHS Therapy, which included quality assurance, appeals and denials, regulatory compliance, and enforcement of compliance. The duties and tasks she oversaw included therapy auditing and monitoring, education, and training regarding therapy compliance, including laws, regulations, organization policies, and documentation compliance standards.

“I look forward to fostering a dynamic and exemplary compliance program that will refine and empower each therapist at Legacy Healthcare Services with the ultimate goal of exceeding the expectations for the seniors that are placed within our care,” said Dwyer.
