About Alternate Solutions Health Network
We were founded in 1999 by David & Tessie Ganzsarto. Our goal has been (and will always be) that we find the right people to provide care for our patients of the highest quality level! Tessie was inspired to join the field of homecare when she experienced firsthand the positive impact the health care professionals provided to her family member. He was a diabetic who underwent a series of amputations. With their care, he was able to walk again.
We began with a staff of 20 and have grown to over 2,000! We’ve grown in part by our partnerships with other health systems. Alternate Solutions Health Network is headquartered in Kettering, OH and now operates throughout the state of Ohio, in Detroit, MI, Fairfax, VA, Orlando, FL, and Hollywood, FL. Since realizing our vision to have a more meaningful impact across the patient’s overall plan-of-care, we have partnered with some of the country’s most prominent health systems and caregivers.
We believe that what separates us from other post-acute care providers are the people who make up our organization. Our greatest asset is our culture. We believe that culture is made up of three components:
To be the national leader in post-acute care.
To inspire hope and improve the quality of life for those entrusted to our care.
To care for our customers like they are our own family.
We have eight core beliefs:
We CARE for our customers like they are our own FAMILY.
We view QUALITY and TRUST as the cornerstones of our business and the top responsibility of all employees.
We recognize that our EMPLOYEES are essential to our success and we believe in providing an environment that rewards for outstanding performance and provides training, self-development and career opportunities.
We work as a TEAM to attain success.
We hire for ATTITUDE and train for skill.
We act with HONESTY and INTEGRITY.
We support the COMMUNITIES in which we work and live.
We operate our business in a FISCALLY responsible manner.
What we offer
Our environment helps you thrive!
Opportunity for Growth
Patients love our care and that means we are growing rapidly. After more than ten years of rapid growth, and with more on the horizon, we need more leaders. Our aspiration is for field clinicians to grow into our future leaders.
Leaders from the Field
We are proud to have agency leaders come from the field. They have walked in your shoes and understand the challenges of delivering care in patients’ homes. They know how to support you and do an excellent job.
Benefits to Support You
Our benefits package is also competitive in the market. We provide medical, dental, and vision insurance with flexibility for you to select what works best for you. Eligible teammates receive paid time off and may participate in the 401K, if they choose. Historically the company has matched 401K contributions which helps build your nest egg even faster. Finally, our benefit program includes company paid life, disability insurance, and a robust Employee Assistance Program.
A Genuine Culture
We don’t make anything. We are people who care for people in their homes. That is a privilege we take seriously, and it affects how we behave and the decisions we make. It is why we hire for attitude and train for skill. It is why quality and trust are core to who we are. And it is why we care for one another like family.
Our culture comes through in tangible ways as well. We match charitable donations that our teammates make in their local communities. Our “We Care Like Family” program enables us to help one another through unexpected and difficult times. And our employee referral program makes it easy to work with folks you already know, who are great cultural fits.
Continuous Training & Career Development
We invest in our team. This starts with a robust orientation program to introduce ASHN and prepare you to care for patients in their homes. Through orientation and beyond, your Clinical Manager and Preceptor work together to ensure that you remain prepared. You will have frequent check-ins to answer your questions, review regulatory changes, and provide the support you need. And they are available any time by phone to answer your questions.
We also provide ongoing education opportunities. Our Chief Clinical Officer is continuously reviewing publications to find the best options for patient care. The clinical organization then provides training updates and configures our Electronic Medical Record to ensure it is easy to follow best practices.
Control Over Your Income
Our goal is to provide the best earning for clinicians who delivery high quality care efficiently, and we benchmark other providers to ensure our compensation is competitive.
The hallmark of our program is per visit compensation with quarterly bonuses based on achieving specific quality performance targets. There is no cap on how much you can earn, and our top performers usually earn twice as much as the market average.
We also provide additional compensation for times you are on call and we reimburse mileage for your travel from one patient home to the next. Better yet, mileage is automatically tracked by our EMR so there are no manual reports to tabulate and submit.
From Our Employees
Our employees come from a wide variety of backgrounds. Clinicians, social service and personal care professionals, administrative support, management and sales all come together to form a family.
One of the most attractive features of working here is the opportunity to grow your career! We recognize the value of hard work and dedication!

We believe in fostering a culture where achievement is encouraged and recognized. Employees who meet individualized quarterly performance goals are rewarded financially and publicly recognized by their peers. We love to recognize our overachievers!
