CLARKSVILLE – Tennessee State Veterans’ Homes Board (TSVHB) is pleased to announce the appointment of Suzanne Hogan as Administrator of the Brigadier General Wendell H. Gilbert Tennessee State Veterans’ Home in Clarksville. In this capacity, Suzanne will oversee the daily operations of the Home and maintain compliance in accordance with the established policies and procedures of the TSVHB to ensure maximum high standards of care to residents.
“I am excited to become a part of the great team in Clarksville where I can serve the veterans and their families,” states Hogan.
Suzanne brings more than two decades of long-term care leadership experience to the Tennessee State Veterans’ Homes. Most recently, she worked as the Administrator for The Waters of Robertson, a 120 bed facility located in Springfield, Tennessee.
Suzanne has been a licensed nursing home administrator since 1994. She began her career in long-term care as a social worker after graduating from Austin Peay State University in 1990. She served as an interim administrator in the state of Kentucky and North Carolina where she helped facilities get in compliance with survey readiness. She began working in her home state of Tennessee in 2000 where she continued to serve as a long-term care and skilled administrator within the nursing home industry.
Suzanne has worked in several different facilities ranging in size, up to a continuum care retirement community with 450 beds as well as serving as a regional administrator.
“Suzanne’s experience in the industry positions her to successfully oversee our Clarksville Home and ensure our veterans continue to receive the highest quality of care possible,” said Ed Harries, Executive Director of the Tennessee State Veterans’ Homes. “We are very excited to have her on our team.”
Suzanne will replace Warren Jasper, who has served as the Clarksville Administrator since the Home opened in 2016. Jasper was promoted to Director of Risk Management in July and has the primary responsibility of providing regulatory guidance to the TSVHB.
“I am excited to turn the reins over to Suzanne but will miss working daily with the residents and staff,” said Jasper. “I have no doubt she will do a stellar job serving our veterans and the Clarksville Community.”
Suzanne lives in Clarksville, Tennessee with her husband. She has four children and one grandchild.
