What sets Hygeia apart?
Hygeia employs a full time in-house staff of registered nurses, physical, occupational and speech therapists to meet all your home health care needs. These clinicians use an encouraging approach to therapies, driving incremental progression towards patient centered goals. Care programs are customized with written exercise plans that are specific to patients’ individual pathologies and problems.
Unlike most home health agencies, Hygeia is 100% Clinician owned. Hygeia clinicians are recognized for their excellence in nursing care, utilizing comprehensive medication and disease process education, mental health nursing and social work.
Our professional staff is dedicated to helping patients achieve the peak quality of life possible. We are not satisfied until we have addressed every possible concern to its fullest, giving you confidence that comes from an independent lifestyle.
