As healthcare continues to evolve, high-quality care is increasingly important in the home setting. With that in mind, Baylor Scott & White Health, the largest not-for-profit healthcare system in Texas, and Texas Home Health, an AccentCare, Inc. company and leader in post-acute healthcare, are excited to announce that they have formed a new home health joint venture company, Texas Home Health Group, effective August 1, 2017.

The newly formed joint venture delivers home health services to 57 counties from eight locations: Brenham, College Station, Huntsville, Marble Falls, McKinney, Taylor, Temple and Waco. Staff and care team members from the legacy Texas Home Health and Baylor Scott & White Health Home Care agencies have joined the new joint venture, with operations being managed by Texas Home Health.
“We are proud to join with a proven leader in the home healthcare industry and are excited about this new relationship and what it means for the communities we serve,” said James H. Hinton, president and CEO of Baylor Scott & White Health. “Texas Home Health shares our commitment to innovative and compassionate patient care and brings significant home care experience.”
