    Fran Petrella, BSN, RN

    Senior Vice President, Accreditation

    Fran Petrella is the Vice President of Accreditation at Community Health Accreditation Partner (CHAP) in Washington, DC. CHAP was the first accrediting body for community-based health care organizations in the United States and was created in 1965 as a joint venture between the American Public Health Association (APHA) and the National League for Nursing (NLN).

    Fran graduated Cum Laude from Washington State University in 1977 with a Bachelor's of Science in Nursing. Fran began her career as a nurse's aide in a nursing home in 1971, moving to the hospital on graduation, and working on an Internal Medicine/Oncology unit. In 1986, she found home care, providing both home health and hospice services as a field nurse and in management in northwest Washington State. In 2000, she started working as technical support staff and Home Health expert resource for a home care benchmarking company, advancing to Director of Client Services within 6 months. Fran jumped back into the Home Care arena in 2010, working in management/oversight roles for a VNA, and facilitating the transition of a merger with a hospital-based system, providing home health, hospice, and home infusion pharmacy services. In 2012, she moved across the country from Washington State to join the team at CHAP. Community-based care is her heart. She strongly believes that quality community-based care should be at the core of health care and that the increased focus towards “connecting the dots" through the continuum of care is helping us along the path to that change. Her ultimate goal is to be involved in the path in whatever way she can; to facilitate bringing quality home care closer to becoming the center of the path along the continuum.
