Susan Wingert is the founder of Pediatric Home Service (PHS). Starting with the recognition that there was a need for high-tech pediatric homecare, Susan built an organization dedicated to meeting that need and PHS opened its doors in 1990 to provide home medical equipment for children who otherwise would remain hospitalized. Since then, the company has expanded to offer infusion nursing & pharmacy, enteral nutrition, home care nursing, mental health, and clinical & online education.
Susan was also the founder of the Council for Pediatrics, later known as the Professional Home Care Coalition. This council worked with many suppliers and homecare agencies to improve the consistency of care and safety of every medically-complex child in their community.
A respiratory therapist by training, Susan is a graduate of St. Mary’s, now St. Catherine’s University, in St. Paul, Minn.
