Logan County Home Health Agency Closing Announcement
Logan County Health Commissioner and Medical Director, Boyd Hoddinott, M.D., announced at the monthly Board Meeting on November 4, 2015, the closure of Logan County Home Health Agency. The last day of operation of the agency will be January 31, 2016.The agency will no longer accept new patients as of December 1, 2015. However, we will work with our existing patients to ensure their home health care services will continue until discharge or transfer to another home health agency.
The decision to close the home health agency came after considerable annual financial losses due to the reduction in Centers of Medicare/Medicaid and private insurance reimbursement. The closure of this agency is the reflection of the rapidly changing times of increased healthcare costs. However, it reflects something that will never change and that is our commitment to the needs of each of our current patients. We want to express our deep appreciation to the staff for their caring efforts to manage under this most difficult and stressful situation.
