and people are far more than
their medical conditions.
At Deaconess HomeCare, we are more than an organization of healthcare professionals – we are proud members of communities across southern Mississippi. Quality service is our mission. And to us, service means getting to know our patients on a personal level.
We know the people we serve, understand their needs, and tailor healthcare to ensure the best journey possible.
We’re passionately committed to making healthcare better every day by leading the industry in clinical excellence and service quality.
We empower our clinicians and staff to embrace the communities they serve, because the best care happens in the context of strong relationships.
Each patient and family we are privileged to serve is unique. Our ongoing mission is to design a specific plan to help those in our care achieve their best possible health – in the comfort of home.
Under the direct supervision of the referring physician, our highly skilled home care professionals deliver quality, compassionate care. We also include families and caregivers in the care process, offering valuable information, guidance and – most of all – support.
