Cheryl Lovell and Anna-Gene O'Neal bring a combined six decades of experience to their new roles.

Charter Healthcare has named Cheryl Lovell and Anna-Gene O'Neal as its new chief executive officer and chief operating officer, respectively.

The post-acute provider serves almost 13,000 patients across eight states under the umbrella of Pharos Capital Group. Services they provide include home health, hospice, complex care management, and palliative care.

"I am excited to be working with the Charter and Pharos teams to support and expand the company's mission of ensuring a comfortable patient experience while lowering the costs of care," Lovell said in a statement. "The need for quality palliative care is large and growing, and it is gratifying to offer patients and families the high-quality essential services they deserve."

Lovell has more than two decades of experience in healthcare, including experience in home health, hospice, home care, and mobile physician settings. Before joining Charter, she founded and served as CEO of her own consulting firm where she offered her expertise in healthcare, operations, and finance to assist post-acute providers.

O'Neal brings 35 years of experience as an RN  to her new role, as well as executive management experience from her roles at healthcare companies. Prior to Charter, she worked as an independent consultant supporting operational analysis for post-acute companies. Before that, she served as the division president for Brookdale Healthcare Services—now part of HCA Healthcare—where she guided them through the pandemic.

"Charter plays a unique role in bringing a human touch, personalized care, and a family-centered approach to patients navigating the last years of life," she said in a statement. "And I am proud to join a company whose goals for growth include providing compassionate care to more people in more places."
