Home Health and Hospice
Home health is a state-licensed, medicare certified and joint commission accredited department of HSHS St. Vincent Hospital.
Home Health offers services to individuals in their home who require the skills of a nurse or therapist, are homebound and are under the care of a physician. Home Health services focus on improving the health and independence of those in the community while allowing individuals to receive health care services in the comfort of their own home. Home Health offers a variety of services at a significant cost savings and Home Health is covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most insurance plans.

Telehealth is the delivery of health-related services and information via telecommunications technologies. Telehealth may be part of a client’s Home Health plan of care. Telehealth provides the opportunity for our nurses to review some of our client’s health information, even when a visit to the home is not needed.
Telehealth encompasses preventative and curative aspects and helps promote client independence. With Telehealth, Home Health will be able to monitor weights, blood pressures, oxygen saturations, pulse, and blood sugars.
