Temple Health engaged BAYADA Home Health Care to provide management services for its home care division, Jeanes Home Health. The agreement brings together a regionally recognized acute care hospital with a nationally renowned home health care provider, to ensure the seamless continuation of necessary home health care services after hospital discharge. The department will be known as Temple Health at Home | Managed by BAYADA.
This agreement is part of a larger strategic initiative at Jeanes Hospital, launched in 2014 to grow priority clinical programs and focus on providing exceptional patient experiences. Engaging BAYADA gives Temple Health the opportunity to broaden its service capabilities to offer services to the entire health system.
“As a result of this new relationship,” said President and CEO at Jeanes Hospital Dr. Marc P. Hurowitz, “patients will benefit from Jeanes Hospital’s commitment to serving its growing community, and BAYADA’s experience in offering the most sophisticated home health care services.”
The management services agreement, signed by Jeanes Hospital and BAYADA, gives BAYADA responsibility for the operations of the division, including all office and administrative functions, and brings Jeanes home health care providers into the larger BAYADA team.
Mark Baiada, founder and president of BAYADA Home Health Care, added, “Jeanes Hospital and BAYADA share a parallel mission to serve patients with compassion, excellence, and reliability. There is a strong alignment in the culture and values of both organizations.”
Jeanes Hospital is the only acute care Quaker-founded hospital in the United States, and has been a member of the Temple University Health System since 1996. The hospital provides communities in Northeast Philadelphia, Montgomery County and Bucks County with advanced medical, surgical and emergency services, in addition to its home health care division.
