St. Elizabeth Home Health is a leading home health care company focused on delivering personalized home health to thousands of patients and their families in the comfort of their own homes each and every day. We focus on the care that’s best for your condition and your goals. Whether that is care concentrated on empowering you to manage a chronic health condition, or home-based recovery and rehabilitation after an operation or injury, we are dedicated on bringing skilled nursing and therapy to you, wherever that may be. The St. Elizabeth Home Health staff understands that every person is unique in the level of independence they want to keep and the kind of assistance that they require at home to stabilize their health.
Our office, clinical and therapy staff are carefully screened and selected during the employment process. Each receives continuous professional training and development that is specifically related to providing the best care to you. We provide in-house training in a room designed to mimic a home setting with a simulation mannequin. This provides us an opportunity to assess our staff’s numerous skills such as IV, tracheostomy, wound care and moving a patient using a walker, cane, wheelchair etc. New nurses and therapists are checked off via a return demonstration by senior staff, which they then have a joint home visit with. These mentoring visits allow new employees to demonstrate their expertise while observing the intricacies of delivering health care in a home environment.
Everyone deserves to live life to their fullest. Returning you or your loved one to their highest functional level is the mission of St. Elizabeth Home Health. Our rapid growth as one of the nation’s leading health care companies is truly the result of making sure you are at your best functional level of health and leaving you with a feeling of improvement.
A Shift to Comprehensive Care in the Home
We believe in you as the patient or caregiver and will support you by providing our innovative services to meet your needs. We will assist you in adjusting from receiving care in a hospital or rehab, to managing the care at home. We do this through communication and coordination with you, your doctor, your hospital or rehab staff before discharge, or in coordination with your physician’s office. We gather the information, education and treatment plan that is unique to your goals and needed level of care. Once home, it’s our task to help you achieve advancement towards independence. Our staff communicates regularly with you, your caregiver and with your doctors to enhance the exchange of information needed to optimally provide services to you. We are passionate about improving your goal outcomes, reducing time of recovery and keeping you or your loved ones where they want to be – at home and enjoying life.
St. Elizabeth Home Health believes in the power of technology to enable our clinicians to provide better care for our patients. To truly establish a continuum of care that connects each member of a patient’s care team, technology is required to foster communication, manage care plans and efficiently document progress. That’s why we’ve invested in programs and technologies that enable our patients to have a true continuum of care experience.
St. Elizabeth Home Health is a recognized innovator and one of the first in the industry to equip its clinicians with point-of-care technology. This enables physicians to refer with an Internet portal that enables seamless, real-time coordination of patient care. Horizon is continually looking for ways we can make enhancements and keep our technology up to date with the newest improvements in delivering healthcare.
Our advanced chronic care management programs enable us to deliver quality care in accordance with the latest evidence-based practices. We have designed programs for management of chronic illnesses, such as COPD, CHF and more. The objective of these specialized programs and our care in general for those without chronic health concerns is to help reduce the possibility of you or your loved one having to return to the hospital.
