At Northeast Georgia Home Health, we are more than an organization of healthcare professionals – we are proud members of communities across Northeast Georgia. Quality service is our mission. And to us, service means getting to know our patients on a personal level.
LHC Group, a new affiliate of Northeast Georgia Health System and a leading, national home healthcare agency, will now offer its services to patients in our region. Northeast Georgia Home Health provides our patients with additional options to ensure a smooth transition from the hospital to their homes.
How we help
Each patient and family we are privileged to serve is unique. Our ongoing mission is to design a specific plan to help those in our care achieve their best possible health – in the comfort of home.
Under the direct supervision of the referring physician, our highly-skilled home care professionals deliver quality, compassionate care. We also include families and caregivers in the care process, offering valuable information, guidance and – most of all – support.
