Peoples Home Health joined the Covenant Care family of services this past May, and because we share so many of the same values, you might not have noticed. Covenant Care and Peoples Home Health each have a rich history of serving our community and growing to meet the diverse needs of our friends and neighbors. For many years, we have enjoyed a collaborative working relationship, connected by our shared values and unwavering focus on quality patient care. As we strengthen our existing partnership, we will be better positioned to assist a greater number of people. Our patients, community partners, and payors all want and expect post-acute providers like us to fully address a broad range of patient needs across the care continuum. By coming together, Peoples Home Health and Covenant Care are building a comprehensive healthcare delivery system that is deeply rooted in our community and supported by a unique mission.
Peoples Home Health and Covenant Care have enjoyed a collaborative relationship focused on meeting the needs of patients with life-limiting illness, noted Tim Buttell, Vice President of Peoples Home Health. “Peoples is honored to join with Covenant Care as it develops an array of complementary post-acute services,” said Buttell, who will be continuing with the organization in a leadership capacity. “Home health is integral to Covenant Care’s strategic growth plans and we’re gratified at the recognition of the quality, experience, expertise and commitment that the Peoples team will bring to this initiative.”
Healthcare has been evolving at a rapid pace. Across the entire spectrum of care—from acute to post-acute, home health to hospice, skilled nursing to assisted living—providers are consolidating in anticipation of changes in reimbursement and risk. The owners of Peoples Home Health decided the best way to honor the quality reputation of their company was to join with another aligned provider, one that possesses the vision and resources to develop an integrated delivery model. In choosing Covenant Care, the owners of Peoples also selected an organization with a similar culture and many of the same values. As a local not-for-profit, Covenant Care was born of the community, built for the community and sustained by the community. Covenant – like Peoples – is positioned to fulfill the needs of the area in which we live and serve.
Peoples Home Health is now Covenant Care Home Health, and will continue to provide the care you have come to know and trust. To receive more information on Home Care, call 855.CARE.365 or visit us online at choosecovenant.org
