Get to Know Our Iowa Home Health Care Leaders
Kathy Gabel, RN, Owner/President
Kathy is a registered nurse, corporate marketing consultant, healthcare entrepreneur and owner and president of Advanced Home Health Care.
According to Kathy, “Healthcare has changed every day since I began as a nurse in 1984. Services are difficult to navigate if you are not someone who knows the system.” Kathy purchased Advanced Home Health Care with the mission of providing customer-focused Iowa home health care and in-home care services that help clients navigate care options and preserve autonomy and independence in Southeast Iowa.
Kathy’s 30 plus years in nursing, health care and business give her a unique ability to respond to the market and assist those who are searching for the right care for themselves or a loved one. Kathy has also helped Advanced Home Health Care obtain a well-respected relationship with other health care providers in Burlington, Iowa, and the counties of Des Moines, Lee, Henry, Louisa and Van Buren.
Kathy’s passion for serving people is evident in her work and community involvement. She is an active member of Trinity United Methodist Church, Keokuk Rotary Club and a Senior Advisor and sponsor of Greater Keokuk Young Professionals. Kathy is active in the Keokuk Economic Development Corporation and was elected President in June of 2015. She accompanied the Economic Development and Chamber of Commerce’s delegation to Washington, DC to lobby on behalf of southeast Iowa.
Kathy, along with her husband and business confidant Steve, continues to work on solutions for the ever-changing health care market. Knowing that people want to get better and stay healthy in the most comforting atmosphere keeps Kathy and her team passionate about providing quality home health care services to their community.
