David Ganzsarto’s entrepreneurial endeavors began at a young age with the childhood businesses he started, from his newspaper route to selling items to other kids. That same entrepreneurial spirit carried him through life and helped him found Alternate Solutions HomeCare.
Ganzsarto and his wife, Tessie, decided to start their own home health care business after the company she was working at was bought and changed cultures.
They began in 1999 with supplemental staffing from an agency that supplied labor to home health care facilities and hospitals in the Dayton area. They had their struggles, as it was challenging to acquire the needed certifications and accreditations. There were also regulatory changes relating to Medicare reimbursement, which while being a challenge, also meant that other businesses exited the industry.
Their big break came when Area Agency on Aging offered to help Alternate Solutions get certified and give them a client list from one of the local organizations that had recently closed. Ganzsarto received his Medicare license in 2001, and has been providing quality home health care services ever since.
Ganzsarto’s commitment to treating all his customers like family has paid off, as the company has had impressive revenue growth since 2004 and maintains a customer satisfaction rating of 94 percent. Additionally, 90 percent of new hires are referred by his current employees. With satisfied employees and customers, he’s well on his way to continued success.
