Luke grew up around the business and industry, so to him, it has always felt like second nature to be involved in health care. Sitting around the kitchen table, he heard both of his parents ( Rob Vadas, Founder and CEO as well as Bonny Young-Vadas, COO) talk health care and specifically geriatric rehabilitation. These conversations sparked an interest and appreciation for the industry. Luke feels fortunate to witness first-hand the benefits and incredible experiences that quality therapy can provide to residents, homecare patients and their families. For as long as he can remember, Luke had an inherent desire to help continue the excellent quality of care that Arbor, Aspen, and now Arbor Home Health can provide. This led him to pursue a Bachelor of Arts in Public Relations and Masters in Healthcare Administration. He attended Penn State and St. Joseph’s University.
For 2021, Luke’s goal is to thoroughly fill the need for home health rehabilitative services throughout the entire footprint Arbor and Aspen have in Ohio. For 2022, he plans to expand coverage into W Va. and Pa.! Luke credits the success of the HH department to an incredible team of dedicated Program Managers and therapists as well as carefully grooming relationships with agencies whose values mirror ours. This has enabled him to double the number of visits per month provided this year over last!
In his down time, Luke is an avid fan of college football, specifically the Penn State Nittany Lions. He enjoys outdoor activities such as golf in the summer and hunting throughout the fall and winter.
