Erlanger Health System And LHC Group To Celebrate 1st Anniversary Of Home Health And CBS Partnership
Friday, December 7, 2018
Erlanger Health System and LHC Group invite patients, family members, staff and the public to celebrate the first anniversary of their joint home health venture at Erlanger ContinuCare Home Health and CBS on Monday beginning at 4 p.m.
Together, LHC Group and Erlanger Health System are operating a home health agency by offering home and community-based services in the Chattanooga region. Over the past year, Erlanger Health System and LHC Group have helped provide patients throughout Chattanooga and southeast Tennessee with post-acute care services, helping them recover in the comfort and familiarity of home.
The two healthcare providers work to enhance home health services, facilitate better coordination of care delivery and seamlessly transition patients from the acute to the post-acute setting.
"Hospital and home health partnerships are a key component in helping patients manage their conditions, move efficiently and effectively through the healthcare continuum, and achieve an optimum outcome," officials said. "Home health professionals treat a wide range of medical conditions ranging from strokes and other neurological conditions; orthopedic surgical procedures; illnesses requiring intravenous antibiotics and other intravenous or injectable medications; and many other diagnoses that require intermittent observation by nurses and other clinicians including physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech pathologists."
Erlanger ContinuCare Home Health and CBS is located at 4289 Bonnie Oaks Drive, Suite 201-B, in Chattanooga. For more information about the event and services, call Erlanger ContinueCare Home Health 423-386-1152.
