Partnership expands continuum of post-acute care services

MECHANICSBURG, Pa., Aug. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Post Acute Medical, LLC (PAM) has entered into a joint venture with

Be Healthy at Home, a home health care organization based in Buda, Texas. Together, they will improve the continuum of post-acute care services available in the communities served by PAM's acute medical rehabilitation and long-term acute care hospitals.

"Be Healthy at Home is a five-star home health agency that for many years has proven to be a tremendous resource for our hospital in Kyle, Texas," says Kristen Smith, PAM's president of Clinical Innovation and Business Intelligence. "We look forward to bringing their specialized home care services to the communities served by our other hospitals in the region and beyond."

The joint venture will also benefit providers and patients by integrating services and systems, according to Brandis Wilmore, president, Be Healthy at Home.

"We ensure that patients are getting the care they need in the appropriate setting," says Wilmore, explaining that her staff is trained to act immediately when a patient's health declines. "Post Acute Medical has been a big asset for us because they are able to intercept patients, making it possible to avoid emergency visits to the ER. We also get many patients at skilled nursing facilities that aren't 100 percent appropriate for home yet, so we send them to PAM hospitals to get the necessary rehabilitation and ensure they are able to meet their goals at home."
