Department of Home Health

Professional, Reliable and Compassionate Home Health

Knox Communiity Hospital's Department of Home Health offers an alternative to extended hospital stays and nursing homes. This great service to county residents offers professional medical and personal services while aiding families to take a more active role in their loved ones care.

Knox Community Hospital is pleased to provide high-quality home health care for our community.  All patients seeking home health care, even those whose hospital care was provided at another facility, are welcome and encouraged to consider the Department of Home Health.

All medically related services are administered under a provider's plan of care. The client's assigned case manager works with the provider to be certain the client's condition is closely monitored.

Home Health shortens and, in some cases, even eliminates hospital stays.

Medicare, Medicaid, and most major insurance plans cover the cost of Home Health Care, according to the plan's guidelines and criteria for the Home Health Care benefit.
