Our company was founded in 1994 as a single home health agency in small-town America, with a mission to serve the neediest and most vulnerable members of the community. Those values and priorities still form the core of our company culture.
Our focus is on moving our industry forward. We encourage and nurture a culture of innovation, and we are determined to lead our industry and our peers in finding ways to adapt, overcome obstacles, and improve service in a healthcare system that is always changing. We will improve the quality of life in the United States by transforming the delivery of healthcare services.
We remain committed to providing high-quality service and driving the best industry practices at an individual and community level. Most importantly, our people at the local level are always empowered to make decisions that benefit their community.
