WiAHC 2018 Leadership Award Recipient Recognized

Annual award recognizes extraordinary contributions to home care in Wisconsin

Kimberly, WI – Greg Von Arx of Recover Health was honored with the 2018 Wisconsin Association for Home Health Care’s (WiAHC) Leadership Award at the annual Fall Conference in Middleton, WI on November 8. The award recognizes professionals who make extraordinary contributions to Wisconsin home care and is presented annually to a WiAHC member or partner. Recognizing members or partners allows WiAHC to honor home care professionals and their profession. Candidates for the award are individuals who have demonstrated extraordinary service and contributions to Wisconsin home care.

Von Arx currently serves as the President/CEO of Minnetonka-based Recover Health. Recover Health operations locations in Wisconsin including Baraboo, Eau Claire, Janesville, La Crosse, Madison, Milwaukee and Waupaca. Von Arx has been an active member and leader in the association and Wisconsin’s home care industry for many years. He has served on the WiAHC Board since 2017, is a member of the Membership Committee and has chaired the Legislative Committee since 2016. His passion for advocacy and legislative affairs affecting Wisconsin home care has been instrumental in assisting the association in the hiring of a lobbyist earlier in 2018. With lobbyist representation, WiAHC is now better equipped to advocate for home care agencies and their staff across the state with the goal of improving the care and services they provide.

Below are quotes describing Von Arx from WiAHC members:

“I have worked for Greg for about the last 7 years and I love to see he is being recognized by WiAHC as a Leader, because that’s exactly what he is. He has a warm, fun-loving attitude with an amazing vision in regard to what home care is and should be and it comes down to our mission at our agency of creating relationships that make a meaningful difference in peoples’ lives.”

“Greg is a persistent, hardworking entrepreneur who shares a sense of purpose with all he interacts with”

“Greg is always encouraging others to get involved within the community to build more relationships and continue our mission outside of our organization. I respect that greatly, as building relationships and making a difference in others’ lives should not end when you leave your place of work – it is a way of life.”
