Dignity Team Health Launches Home Health Division
Dignity Team Health, a Dallas-headquartered provider of hospice and private care services, announced today the launch of Dignity InHome Healthcare, its new home health care offering , in Dallas Fort Worth.
The provision of home health care makes Dignity Team Health one of a handful of companies offering a full spectrum of in-home care services from home health to private care and hospice.
Home health care is prescribed by a doctor to patients recuperating from illness or injury at home. A broad range of medical support services are provided by professional health personnel such as skilled nurses, physical therapists, social workers and other specialists. Medicare and most insurances pay for home health care for eligible patients.
Home health care’s emphasis is on easing the patient back into self-sufficiency after a major health issue. Not only does being treated at home enhance the patient experience, but medical provider studies have shown substantial cost savings with the reduction of hospitalization, re-hospitalizations and emergency room use.
“There is a limited number of organizations that can provide all tiers of in-home care services – home health, private care and hospice – that Dignity Team Health is prepared to address,” said Dignity Team Health chief operating officer John Lay.
“Our commitment to patients and their families is dignity throughout challenging health periods as well as continuity across life stages where support is most needed,” Lay added.
Dignity Team Health provides private care and hospice services in Dallas Fort Worth and hospice in Houston. The company was founded in 2014 and has plans to grow to 11 locations by the end of 2017. The home health unit will be headed up by chief administrator Curt Boatman.
