  • Our patient surveys show that our patients feel they receive exceptional care and they truly like their nurses and therapists.
  • We consistently outperform other home health agencies, both locally and nationally.
  • In some cases we are able to evaluate patients on the same day the referral is received if required; *time and location will be the ultimate factor.
  • Under normal circumstances, we have the ability to evaluate patients prior to discharge from a hospital or other facility. This ensures the patients and families are aware of the anticipated plan of care for their loved ones. This also enables DMHS to consult with the nurses and physicians to further determine any concerns or specific needs.
