Homecare Update: Bringing Nationwide Children's Expertise Home

(From the November 2018 Issue of MedStat)

In recognition of National Home Care and Hospice month, Homecare is celebrating growth and their One Team approach to delivering the expertise of Nationwide Children's Hospital to the homes of patient families.

 As part of the nation’s largest pediatric hospital, Homecare offers several services:

  • Infusion Pharmacy
  • Pediatric Home Medical Equipment
  • Intermittent Nursing
  • Private Duty Nursing
  • Skilled Therapy (OT, PT and Speech)
  • Hospice and Palliative Care Services

Each one of our service lines adheres to the same JC quality standards as Nationwide Children's, and as a result, Homecare is leading our pediatric home care peers in QI outcomes.

Because Nationwide Children's Hospital has experienced tremendous growth over the past decade, Homecare’s services have continued to expand. We now provide services such as Asthma Express, Factor and Phototherapy. We have also opened central Ohio’s first pediatric-specific Medical Equipment and Supplies Store at Lewis Center, offering everything from therapy, and feeding products sized for infants and children, as well as sports medical supplies for young athletes.
