National Home Care and Hospice Month
What you need to know from our Home Health company.
Since becoming a system company in 2000, Cook Children’s Home Health has become an industry leader in helping patients receive top quality care beyond the walls of a hospital and into the comfort of their own homes.
In the last 22 years, Home Health has expanded its care outside of the DFW area into Austin and San Antonio, with plans to see patients in Houston in December 2022. Our Home Health is one of the only pediatric home care companies in the state that include skilled nursing, pharmacy/infusion services, rehabilitation services, durable medical equipment for respiratory and feeding services, orthotics, prosthetics, and custom mobility.
In 2022, Home Health touched thousands of lives providing:
- 527 recovering patients had 3,300 skilled nursing visits
- 394 patients received 37,558 rehabilitation visits
- Over 56,000 patients received durable medical equipment
- 146 ventilator patients received respiratory care and services
- 1,271 pharmacy patients received 256,535 doses
- 3,078 orthotic and prosthetic patients received 10,080 visits
With care from Cook Children’s Home Health, patients are able to be discharged from the hospital timely and in many instances prevent re-hospitalizations. Other services such as orthotics, prosthetics, and custom mobility enable patients to live more functional and healthier lives in their own communities.
Home Health is willing and able to bring care into the communities we serve, providing care directly in the patients’ home. Last year alone our warehouse team traveled more than 823,000 miles to provide needed supplies and equipment to patients and their families.
Cook Children’s Home Health is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday as well as after hour support with on-call drivers and clinical staff to meet the patients’ needs 24/7.
Please feel free to contact Cook Children’s Home Health at 800-747-8242 for any questions or needs that may arise. You can also contact your Home Health Physician liaison to help you with any Home Health needs and visit your clinic to answer any questions.
