After graduating from Roosevelt Hospital School of Nursing in 1961, Patricia Huber pursued a career as a Registered Nurse in Rockville General Hospital and South Nassau Communities Hospital in 1966.
Huber established the Agency in 1988 after a health care company continued to provide substandard health care to her elderly parents and informed her that she could go elsewhere if she thought she could do better.
She now serves as President of Better Home Health Care Agency, Inc., a preferred provider of home health care services that specializes in short-term recovery and long-term care. Today, Better Home Health Care has two locations including Rockville Centre and Forest Hills.
Under Huber’s leadership, the company was named among the Top 25 Fastest-Growing Privately Held Firms by KPMG; as well as being listed among the Top 25 Women-Owned Businesses on Long Island by Long Island Business News.
To improve health and wellness awareness in the community, Huber co-founded and is co-chair of the Rockville Centre Chamber of Commerce Health and Wellness Committee, which acts as a liaison between South Nassau Communities Hospital and the community. Additionally, she and her late husband, Alan, financially assisted the hospital when it identified a need to improve emergency room technology.
Huber also created a program that enabled health care workers to be triple certified as home health aides, personal care aides and certified nurse assistances. This educational program empowered health care workers to be career-minded and seek employment in a variety of health care arenas.
A selected member of the Top 100 Healthcare Executives nationwide, Huber is the recipient of numerous awards and honors. She is the recipient of the South Nassau Communities Hospital Mary Pearson Award, a Rockville Centre Community Service Award recipient, and has received commendations from Senator Dean Skelos and Nassau County Supervisor Thomas Suozzi for community service.
