Ocala home health administrator recognized by state organization

OCALA, Fla. – Carol Costa, RN, administrator at Munroe Regional HomeCare in Ocala, has been recognized by the Home Care Association of Florida with the “Terri Santangelo Outstanding Leader Award.” Costa was presented with the honor at the organization’s annual conference in Orlando in August.
