Clinical Services Director Joins United Church Homes

Heineman to Lead Clinical Services

MARION, Ohio – A longtime registered nurse and respiratory therapist has accepted the position of director of clinical services for United Church Homes communities.

On June 22, 2020, Lorelei Heineman joined the team. She’ll lead clinical efforts for UCH senior living and housing communities.

Most recently, Heineman was an RN in the surgical intensive care unit at Mount Carmel St. Ann’s Hospital, Westerville. Prior to that, she served as vice president of patient care services at Morrow County Hospital, Mount Gilead, and chief clinical officer at Mansfield’s Kindred Hospital. Heineman is also a registered respiratory therapist. She holds a master’s degree in allied medicine management.

In her previous roles, Heineman helped hospitals meet or exceed national quality benchmarks and assisted in planning and implementing infectious disease prevention policies. She has worked in healthcare her entire adult life, beginning her career in registration at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center at age 18.

UCH Communities Aim to Exceed Quality Benchmarks

Nearly six months into the COVID-19 pandemic, United Church Homes and other senior living organizations in the U.S. have increased their focus on clinical care. United Church Homes has maintained its strict infection control policies and procedures to protect residents.

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to increased government scrutiny of nursing homes, especially in their infection control protocols. Heineman will ensure UCH communities are following, and exceeding, recommended guidance. But they’re also maintaining a focus on person-directed care that meets individual needs.

“Our teams have worked incredibly hard throughout this crisis to keep residents – and one another – safe,” Heineman said. “They’re doing everything in their power to care for the residents they love.”

Clinical Field Support for United Church Homes

Heineman will assist the following communities with clinical processes, including basic tasks such as blood pressure checks for independent living residents:

More About Lorelei

Heineman lives on a small horse farm near Cardington with her long-term partner, Dean Castanien. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, endurance horseback riding, gardening and singing with various groups, including First United Church of Christ in Marion. The couple has two dogs, Mya and Holly, and four Arabian horses, Chet, Ember, Kahdir and Dreamer.
