An Innovative Force in Home Health Care
No matter what our patient’s home health care needs are, whether it’s home care, hospice, or home infusion therapy, we are here to help.
About CHI Health at Home
CHI Health at Home is a full service health care organization that believes the best place for someone to get better, and faster, is in their own home. Home is a place of comfort, a place where we can thrive. Every day, we work to find bold new ways to help our patients stay in their home longer, no matter what health concern they are facing. Our commitment is to provide the best quality and comprehensive home health to the communities we serve by offering unique services dedicated to meeting the total needs of our patients.
CHI Health at Home, located just outside of Cincinnati, Ohio, provides services in Arkansas, Arizona, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Nebraska, Ohio, Tennessee, and Washington. With nearly 2,500 associates throughout the organization, CHI Health at Home provides four distinct but coordinated home-based health care services, including:
The partnership and collaboration between these service lines positions CHI Health at Home as a leader in post-hospital home health care. Our continuum allows us to focus on growing into new communities, expanding the services we offer in our current markets, and creating new partnerships with health care providers to improve the health of patients and the community as a whole.
CHI Health at Home specializes in health care management and partners with hospital systems to manage the day-to-day operations of our home health-related companies, allowing the health system to focus on their primary business of running the hospital.
CHI Health at Home is the home health services division of Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI) which is a national, faith-based nonprofit health system headquartered in Englewood, Colorado. As one of the nation’s largest health systems, CHI operates in 19 states and comprises 105 hospitals, including four academic health centers and major teaching hospitals and 30 critical-access facilities; community health services organizations; accredited nursing colleges; home-health agencies; and other facilities that span the inpatient and outpatient continuum of care.
As a part of Catholic Health Initiative’s ministry focus, our patients have access to more services than ever before. All of our patients benefit from our expansive continuum everyday. We have the expertise to help patients navigate the transition from hospital to wherever they call home, ensuring they receive better value-driven care to keep getting healthier. Together, Catholic Health Initiatives and CHI Health at Home make it possible to go home with a tailored plan of care to help patients manage their health, recover faster, and feel more comfortable.
We pride ourselves on providing a safe, nurturing, and dependable environment for our patients. As our footprint grows and our services expand, our mission and values focus us on meeting the needs and health care goals of every one of our patients as a leader in post-hospital home health care.
Our Legacy of Care
Our services reach thousands of people every day. From our humble beginnings in 1976 servicing one mid-western state, we have grown, caring for patients throughout the United States. Although our footprint is large, it is our mission to treat each patient and the community they live in as we would our own family.
CHI Health at Home was founded in Cincinnati, OH in 1976 as our home health care and staffing agency, American Nursing Care (ANC). In 1984, the organization was purchased by a local hospital, Bethesda, and added another service line supporting medical transportation, called Patient Transport Services. As the organization grew, home infusion, pharmacy and home medical equipment services were added in 1986 under the name AmeriMed to meet the expanding needs of our home care patients.
While providing operational support to each of our services lines has always been a top priority for CHI Health at Home, in 1999 Consolidated Health Services was formed as an umbrella organization to unite each unique service line under one entity and manage such functions as Human Resources, Information Technology, Finance, Revenue Cycle, and Payroll. In 2004, AmeriMed entered into a joint venture with CornerStone Medical to provide home medical equipment and oxygen services, so AmeriMed could focus solely on home infusion therapy, products, and services.
These growing partnerships led the way to collaborating with local health care systems in a variety of our markets, expanding each of our service lines beyond their original scope. Our commitment to providing excellent care and our ability to collaborate with local health care systems provided the opportunity for us to expand each of our service lines in existing markets and create new partnerships in communities across the country.
In 2010, Consolidated Health Services, overseeing the operations for each service line, joined Catholic Health Initiatives to serve as CHI’s national home health provider; CHI Health at Home. As Catholic Health Initiatives home-based services provider, CHI Health at Home partnered with local hospital systems across all of CHI’s enterprise to operate its home health services.
