White County Medical Center’s Home Health Care Agency provides needed health services for qualifying patients in the comfort of their own homes. Our ultimate goal is to work with patients on skills that will give them independence and allow them to remain in their homes. Home Health supports family members by teaching and demonstrating caregiving skills needed to provide care for loved ones. The team works with the patient's personal physician to ensure the necessary care is provided through registered nurses, home health aides, therapists (physical, occupational, and speech), and medical social workers. We also offer telemonitoring: a device placed in the patient’s home provides objective monitoring of weight, temperature, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, and blood sugar.
WCMC’s Home Health Care agency was listed in the top 25 percent of home health agencies in the United States in the 2007 Elite in Home Care publication.
WCMC is in the 99th percentile of United States Home Health Agencies in patient satisfaction, according to Press Ganey, a company that statistically measures patient satisfaction for 409 agencies.
