Patients benefit from the calm and familiarity of home and the expert care provided by the Mercy Home Health staff – together this can make a big difference in your recovery.
Our Home Health program enables patients to recover from illness or surgery at home rather than in a rehabilitation facility or skilled nursing unit. Our registered nurses also provide care for patients who are terminally ill, injured, frail, or meet other criteria determined by their doctor.
We also offer specialty programs for palliative care, heart failure, wound care, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients. All of our professional staff is licensed, and our program has received outstanding recognition from The Joint Commission.
