What We Do

Barnes-Kasson Hospital Home Health Department

           The Home Health Department of Barnes-Kasson Hospital has been serving Susquehanna County and Northern Wayne County since 1975. Normal services are provided Monday-Friday, but patients can receive care on weekends and holidays depending upon their individual needs. Home Health Services include Skilled Nursing, Physical Therapy, Medical Social Worker, Home Health Aide, and Occupational Therapy. Home Health care is primarily indicated for those who require skilled services ordered by a physician. Patients are required to be homebound, have specific goals that can be attained within a limited time frame and not require constant medical or nursing supervision.

          Home Health care provides many advantages such as a greater sense of wellness, the opportunity to remain as independent as possible, the possibility of preventing unnecessary hospital admissions, and more. Barnes-Kasson Hospital Home Health Services are available for reimbursement from a number of insurances including Medicare, Medical Assistance, Blue Cross, Blue Shield, and most major HMO & Medicare HMO’s.

          Please do not hesitate to contact the Home Health Department to find out if you, or someone you know, are candidates for Home Health Services. The Home Health Department can be reached at 1-800-982-4330 or (570) 853-4931 Monday-Friday from 8:30am to 4:30pm.
