Northern Arizona Healthcare has partnered with LHC Group Inc. − a national provider of post-acute care − for its homecare and outpatient hospice services. LHC Group took ownership and management of these services effective April 1 and will continue to have offices located in Flagstaff and Cottonwood. NAH will retain 25 percent ownership of the services.
Valley View Care, NAH’s assisted-living facility specializing in end-of-life care in Cottonwood, will remain owned and operated by NAH. NAH will rely upon LHC Group to provide hospice nursing services to serve patients needing this level of care.
“NAH is excited to have a partner such as LHC Group to take homecare and hospice services to the next level. We continually strive to ensure we, along with our partners, provide high-quality care. We believe bringing a partner on board with expertise in this specific care area will allow us become the choice for the communities we serve.” − NAH President and CEO Rob Thames
