Asante, a nationally recognized health system in southern Oregon, and AccentCare, a leader in post-acute health care, announced the expansion of their existing home health joint venture through an agreement signed August 1, 2017.
AccentCare has been operating a joint venture home health company with Asante, delivering clinically integrated care, for the past eight years. This newly expanded relationship will fold in Asante’s Ashland Home Health and create a preferred provider partnership with AccentCare that spans all of Asante’s service area.
“We are excited about our expanded relationship with Asante,” said Steve Rodgers, CEO of AccentCare. “Asante has earned widespread recognition for patient care and shares our commitment to quality, compassionate healthcare in the home.”
Overall, this partnership will benefit patients through care innovation and enhanced care coordination between acute and post-acute home care.
“Our growing partnership with AccentCare will offer our patients improved access to a broader range of home health services, including specialty programs and tele-monitoring,” said Scott Kelly, Asante’s executive vice president. “The expanded array of services will provide continuity as our patients transition from the hospital to other modes of treatment.”
Widely recognized for quality, patient care and dedicated leadership, Asante is based in Medford, Oregon, and provides comprehensive medical care to more than 580,000 people throughout southern Oregon and northern California.
