As COVID-19 persists in North Texas, Resilient Healthcare, a leader in acute home care, has partnered with Medical City Healthcare, one of the most comprehensive health care providers in North Texas, to provide high-quality home care intensity.
The partnership is significant because Medical City Healthcare is the first hospital network in Texas to be approved by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to participate in the Acute Hospital at Home program, which allows patients to undergo certain conditions that qualify them to receive high levels of acid cures in their homes. Home care is supported by remote monitoring 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, daily medical visits, and other necessary assistance. Resilient Healthcare will provide home care on behalf of Medical City Healthcare hospitals in North Texas. Patients can only be enrolled in the program from the emergency room or hospital beds, and enrollment requires a personal medical examination prior to the start of home services.
“As we did during the pandemic, Medical City Healthcare’s prompt response has been to balance our willingness to care for COVID-19 patients while ensuring that many other patients who depend on our hospitals have the necessary and timely delivery. Medical Director of Care Reception Joseph Parra, MD. “The partnership with Resilient allows us to continue to provide excellent and empathic care outside the hospital walls to qualified patients.”
