Everyone knows there’s no place like home. That’s especially true when recovering from illness or injury.
Norton Healthcare and LHC Group Inc. announced recently the formation of a joint venture partnership – creating Norton Home Health – to enhance in-home health care services for patients in Louisville and across the region. The two organizations will collaborate to help patients manage their chronic conditions, seamlessly transition from hospital care, and rest and recover in an environment where they are most comfortable.
“We are pleased to partner with LHC Group to enhance the home health services we provide for our patients,” said Russell F. Cox, president and CEO, Norton Healthcare. “Through Norton Home Health, patients will receive care to regain strength and independence following an injury or illness, or when dealing with a chronic condition or disabling disease. They will also benefit from a multidisciplinary approach to treatment that is monitored through their integrated electronic medical record, stay connected to their health record and communicate with their provider through MyNortonChart.”

In-home care supports faster recovery and patient independence.
“It’s a benefit for our patients to receive healthcare in their own environment as they work to regain strength and independence,” said Kathleen Exline, system vice president, Performance Excellence and Care Continuum, Norton Healthcare. “Our providers, including home health nurses, therapists and social workers, will offer valuable guidance and support, and provide the educational tools and resources patients and families need to make informed decisions on care for themselves or a loved one.”
Home health care is an effective and affordable solution for many patients’ post-acute care needs and situations. This partnership will help patients manage health care costs and hospital admission rates. It will provide a full range of home care, and patients can trust that the treatment plans their doctors prescribe will be followed thoroughly.
