Carol J. Alexander, B.S. ’75, M.A.
As director of clinical services for Stat Home Health Care for the last 24 years, Alexander has spearheaded the agency’s success, culminating in its designation as one of the HomeCare Elite, a listing of Medicare-certified agencies whose performance is among the top 25 percent of providers nationwide. In addition, as a member of the California Association for Health Services at Home and the National Association of Home Care, Alexander has been instrumental in shaping policy for new state and federal regulations on the delivery of home health services. In response to the demand for knowledgeable professionals in the area of home health care, Alexander in 1985 started Spectrum Health Care Consultants, which specializes in the interpretation and application of regulations governing Medicare-certified home health agencies. Alexander has testified in Washington, D.C. and provided insight on Medicare and home health care issues in other state and national forums. As president of the Nurses Ministry and national vice president of the National Missionary Baptist Association Nurses Auxiliary, she has developed policies and procedures for the delivery of care to congregations.
