Melissa Zaroff and Dr. David Gustavison, Medical Director, Covenant HealthCare Wound Healing Center.
This month, WCA would like to highlight the Covenant HealthCare Wound Healing Center in Saginaw, Michigan and its new Program Director, Melissa Zaroff. Beginning this month, Melissa will be responsible for all aspects of the Center’s operations including ensuring quality patient care, compliance with federal and state guidelines, budgeting and fiscal policies, and local marketing efforts.
Melissa has more than 12 years of experience in sales and marketing as well as revenue recognition and management. She most recently worked on contract compliance and business administration at Covenant HealthCare. She has a degree in Business Administration from Baker College and a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt certification.
“Melissa is a highly-respected leader and manager, and we’re very fortunate to have her step into this new role and help us maximize operational efficiencies for our Wound Healing Center,” said Jacqueline Tinnin, Administrative Director at Covenant HealthCare. “In addition to her experience, knowledge and business acumen, she is also very passionate about patient-oriented care. It’s a win-win for our hospital.”
The Covenant HealthCare Wound Healing Center has grown to service 20 counties across central and northeast Michigan. According to the American Diabetes Association, more than 1 million people in Michigan, or 12.4 percent of the adult population, have diabetes, and 2.7 million more have pre-diabetes but may not know it.
“I’m very excited to help usher our wound healing center into its next phase of growth,” said Zaroff. “I have the good fortune of being surrounded by a highly dedicated staff of physicians and clinicians who are passionate about what they do. It’s a very exciting time for the hospital and for patients in the region.”
