A new partnership between Baptist Health System (BHS) and Louisiana-based LHC Group Inc. will enhance home health services for the people of Central Alabama.
The newly formed BHS Home
Care, based in Birmingham, will provide high-quality, compassionate home care to area residents.
Qualified BHS HomeCare patients will receive the Philips Lifeline medical alert service at no additional charge as part of the plan of care.
“At Baptist Health System, it’s our vision to reach superior levels of performance throughout our organization — and to engage those who share in our vision,” said Shane Spees, CEO of BHS.
“LHC Group has a proven track record of successful hospital partnerships that are enhancing post-acute care for patients around the nation. Working together, we’ll expand the quality and scope of services available to our patients and communities across Alabama.”
LHC Group, based in Lafayette, La., is a national provider of post-acute care services and has been repeatedly recognized for excellence and innovation. Keith G. Myers, LHC Group’s chairman and CEO, said the new partnership will result in improved patient care.
“Baptist Health System is nationally recognized for its commitment to improving lives through the delivery of high-quality patient care,” Myers said. “We’re proud to partner with Baptist to deliver superior home health services to the people of Alabama.” (BHS)
