  • Zachariah Mudge, CMA(AAMA), CPT(ASPT)

    Office Manager
    Zak has been the Office Manager since April 2022. He joined us from The University of Detroit Mercy where he recieved his Bachelors Degree in Health Service Administration and Biology. Prior to a management role, Zak accrued experience in many specialty offices and roles including program management, non-profit work, dermatology, surgery, pediatrics, CT scan, urology, and physical therapy.

    As the Office Manager, Zak co-directs, trains, and assists with employee on-boarding procedures, schedules employees, answers phone calls, and takes care of all client/employee relations. 

    Zak says "after watching my Father's declining health and eventual passing in 2022, my priorities changed. I witnessed an amazing hospice team from the management to the janitorial staff take care of not only my Father, but my family as well with extreme passion, care, and empathy. This was the spark that now drives me to be a manager in a healthcare setting to inspire other employees to go above and beyond in their work. I strive to have others feel a sense of pride when they work with me, because when you have pride in your work and employer, you project that onto your patients and their families."
