Charles W. Gehring is President and Chief Executive Officer of LifeCare Alliance. LifeCare Alliance, which was founded in 1898 as the Instructive District Nursing Association, is one of Central Ohio’s oldest and largest not-for-profit organizations, with annual revenues of $19 million and 230 employees. LifeCare Alliance’s mission is to provide health and nutrition services to those in need in Central Ohio. For each senior or chronically ill individual who remains independent and in their own home through the services of LifeCare Alliance, the taxpayers of Ohio save over $62,000 per year. Gehring has completed four key mergers, along with numerous program assumptions, adding to the services offered to the Central Ohio Community. In all cases, LifeCare Alliance has expanded services to serve more clients with much less cost. LifeCare Alliance has also initiated social entrepreneurial ventures to prevent client waiting lists and offset reductions in traditional funding.
