Lynn Flanagan, RN, MSN, CLE joined Ancora Compassionate Care (formerly Hospice of Rockingham County, Inc.) in 2002. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from University of North Carolina at Greensboro in 1990; she earned her MSN (with a concentration in mental health nursing) from East Carolina University in 1995.

Her considerable healthcare background includes psychiatric nursing, home health, and hospice. She taught psychiatric nursing as a clinical instructor at ECU and mental health nursing and community health at Rockingham Community College. She has held certification as a hospice and palliative nurse and was in the first class of Teleios University, obtaining her Certification in Leadership Excellence in 2020.

Lynn was named President & CEO in 2011. Under her leadership, the agency has almost tripled its staff and operational budget. Additionally, the agency has tripled its service lines, now providing hospice, palliative care, and most recently, a behavioral health pilot program. Under Lynn’s leadership, Ancora Compassionate Care has been named to Modern Healthcare’s Best Places to Work in 2022 and 2023. Additionally, the agency holds Hospice Elite status through Healthcare First and has a five-star rating with Medicare. In November 2023, Lynn spearheaded a successful rebranding campaign, enabling Hospice of Rockingham County to change its 36-year-old name and brand to Ancora Compassionate Care.

Lynn currently sits on the TCN’s Clinically Integrated Network (CIN) committee and since October 2021, represents Class B organizations with Teleios Collaborative Network.
