e are pleased to share that the much anticipated October 1st merger of Miles & St. Andrews Home Health & Hospice with MaineHealth Care at Home was a great success. We worked diligently to ensure that the transition was seamless for all of our patients and healthcare partners.
As two MaineHealth organizations who offered home health services in a shared geographical service area, the time was right for MaineHealth Care at Home to take this important step with Miles & St. Andrews. Our combined entity is stronger and better positioned to care for the aging population in the coastal region of our state. We will advance collaboration with all of our MaineHealth partners to focus on important system-wide initiatives such as the expansion of telehealth, and the development of clinical protocols for our patients with cardiac conditions, pulmonary disease, and palliative care needs.
These are exciting times in home health and hospice care in Maine. Please feel free to call members of our team to learn more about our services.
