Home Health

There is no place like home... especially when recovering from an illness or injury. For long-term illness or temporary help after hospitalization or surgery. HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital's experienced team of home health care providers offer skilled nursing care coupled with the latest technologies to help patients and their families manage their medical situation in the comfort of their own home.

For over 25 years, HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital has provided skilled nursing services in the home setting, allowing patients to have continued medical treatment in a comfortable, familiar environment. Our team of caring and experienced Home Health team includes:

  • Registered Nurses
  • Certified Wound Care Nurses
  • Medical Social Workers
  • Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapists
  • Certified Nursing Assistants

Our Home Health professionals work closely with each patient, their family and their physician to develop the best plan of care to meet individual needs. Services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Telehealth Monitoring Systems give patients a sense of security knowing clinicians are monitoring their health status daily. This reduces emergency visits and hospitalizations, as daily monitoring detects even the smallest changes in health status, preventing a chronic condition from escalating into something more serious. Voice/text prompts guide you through a simple, three-minute process to collect vital signs and answers to patient specific yes/no questions, or prompt you to take a medication. Data is automatically sent to our Home Health nurses for clinical review. If the data indicates a need for intervention or if you fail to submit your vital signs or take your medications when prompted, our clinic staff takes appropriate action.
