Trinity Health has appointed Elizabeth Spence as director of Home Health/Hospice. She is responsible for managing the department’s care team as it provides a wide range of healthcare services to patients recovering from illness or injury or needing care as they face a life-limiting illness.
“I’m excited to lead our team as we strengthen our role in the future of healthcare,” she said. “My focus will be on fostering teamwork among talented clinicians to strive for excellence in patient care at all levels.”
A New York native, Spence lived in posts throughout the world with her husband, a member of the military. They moved to Minot Air Force Base in 2001. After completing her nursing education, she joined Trinity Health in 2007.
While at Trinity, Spence served patients in the ICU and the hospital’s 6th floor. She worked in clinic nursing and clinic management and later became a member of the Home Health/Hospice team as a staff nurse and manager. She left Minot for two years to care for homeless veterans in Florida before returning to Trinity Health. She is currently pursuing an advanced degree to become a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner.
A member of the Florida Association of Nurse Practitioners, Spence has two children and two grandchildren. She enjoys crafting, dancing, and spending time with friends and family.
