Jane Hanahan, RN, BSN, MHA
Jane Hanahan, MHA, BSN, RN, has more than 30 years of experience in home care and hospice nursing. She earned a bachelor of science degree in nursing from Villanova University and a master’s degree in health administration from St. Joseph University. As a nursing leader, Hanahan’s areas of expertise include regulatory and corporate compliance, utilization, staff development, fiscal management, quality improvement, project management, and department restructuring and consolidation.
Hanahan joined Crozer-Keystone Health System in 1998 as Director of Home Care and Hospice for Delaware County Memorial Hospital. In her current role since 2005, Hanahan has financial and clinical responsibility for Delaware County Memorial Hospital Home Care and Hospice and Taylor Home Care. She oversees a clinical and administrative staff that includes home care and hospice nurses and nurse managers, as well as physical, occupational and speech therapists.
In the community, Hanahan volunteers with Back on My Feet, a nonprofit organization that promotes self-sufficiency among homeless populations by engaging them in running as a means to build confidence, strength and self-esteem. She also serves as a Eucharistic minister in her church parish.
Hanahan is highly respected for her hands-on leadership approach and her ability to lead by example, as well as for achieving excellent patient outcomes. Crozer-Keystone’s Home Care and Hospice consistently scores below the national references in two key measures: rehospitalization and emergent care.
In her current position, she undertook a major system-wide restructuring and consolidation of Crozer-Keystone Home Care and Hospice. Under her leadership, Home Care and Hospice has streamlined its policies and procedures to ensure consistency across the organization, and has significantly increased its operational and financial efficiency.
On the leading edge of the movement toward electronic medical records, Hanahan was instrumental in the optimization of a digital information system for the CKHS Home Care and Hospice team several years ago. All clinical staff document on laptop computers with proprietary software that enhances interdisciplinary communication and provides secure 24/7 access to patient records from any location.
As a member of Crozer-Keystone’s Magnet Nurse Executive Council, Hanahan helps to promote the many accomplishments of Crozer-Keystone nurses by serving on the CKHS Nursing E-newsletter Advisory Board and by championing Magnet ideals at every level within the Home Care and Hospice organization.
