Meet Our Team

Khyla Inman

VP of Community Relations

As the Vice President of Community Relations, Khyla works to ensure that her patients, their families, and community partners receive the compassionate care they need and deserve.

Khyla first entered the healthcare industry in 2013, educating seniors on their Medicare benefits and how to prepare for the next chapter in their healthcare journey. It was there her passion for community outreach began as she quickly understood the lack of resources available to families navigating their heath care demands. Khyla has made it her life’s work to support families and she has become a long-time trusted resource to the senior healthcare community. She is dedicated to families during their most trying times; their end-of-life journey and bringing peace of mind with quality care.
