Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) May 3, 2005
CHMG and its network of home health agencies announced today the achievement of a significant company milestone, caring for its 100,000th home health patient. The CHMG network of home health care providers, including Access Home Health Care, Carolina Home Health Care, Peninsula Home Care and Tar Heel Home Health, has been providing home health care services throughout the Southeast since CHMGÂs founding in 1997.
ÂProviding care to our 100,000th patient is an amazing milestone,Â said Todd Wiebusch, President/CEO of CHMG. ÂIt represents literally millions of visits to patient homes and millions of hours of direct, hands-on care to patients. The tremendous positive impact our caregivers and other employees have had on the lives of our patients and their local communities is both extraordinary and very humbling. We are honored to have been able to serve so many.Â
The home health care industry continues to grow as the number of seniors increase. Patients prefer to be cared for in the comfort and safety of their own home. In addition, hospitals and payors find home to be a cost effective setting of care. Further, new technologies allow companies like CHMG to provide more complex health care services in the home.
ÂOne of the reasons for our rapid growth has been our early adoption of cutting edge technology,Â said Wiebusch. ÂIn addition to providing both skilled nursing and home therapy services, all of our agencies utilize a number of innovative technologies for our home care patients. For example, weÂve introduced Anodyne Therapy to treat diabetic neuropathy, the SaeboFlex for stroke rehabilitation and an internet-based Telehealth System to monitor and treat patients with heart disease.Â
CHMG is headquartered in Charlotte, NC. Founded in 1997, CHMG is a leading provider of Medicare-certified home health services through a network of 36 locations in seven Southeastern states. In 2005, CHMG will care for more than 20,000 patients in the comfort and safety of their own homes.
