After more than 30 years of providing care as Home Health United we have changed our name to SSM Health at Home.
Our new name and look were unveiled September 18, 2017 at a ceremony attended by company leaders and members of the community at our West Madison location.
While Home Health United’s name has changed, its history of providing exceptional care to the patients and the communities it serves will not. Since 1908, when the Attic Angel Association sent the first visiting nurse into patient homes, to the emergence of the Visiting Nurse Service in Dane County in 1951, to its merger with Home Health United in 1999, patient care has been our focus. As SSM Health at Home, we will continue to provide the high quality, compassionate care patients and their families have come to expect.
“Our legacy has always been the services we provide and the way we provide them,” said Lynne Willer, SSM Health at Home Interim President/CEO and Vice President of Clinical Services. “This is an honor we will carry forward with us through our dedicated employees as we work to help keep people of all ages safe and independent in their homes.”
“This name change will help our patients, customers and partners see how SSM Health at Home services are part of their overall care plan and connect with SSM Health’s fully integrated health care delivery network in south-central Wisconsin,” said Damond Boatwright, SSM Health Regional President of Hospital Operations and SSM Health at Home board director. “Under our new name, we will carry out the important work of being truly present as we work to keep people safe and healthy at home.”
Home Health United has grown and evolved to meet the health care needs of the communities we serve. As SSM Health at Home, we will continue to be there for our patients today and tomorrow.
