Company Description

We've discovered that there are a lot of ways to run a home health care company... but there is only one right way. Custom Home Health was borne from a passion to get it right, to get it done, and to get patients back to their daily lives as quickly and as comfortably as possible. From the founders of the company to the clinicians we send into people's homes, from the office staff to the systems we have put in place to ensure optimal outcomes, there remains one constant: a passion for compassion.

Our people and our processes are driven by a genuine desire to hold - not only our company, but an entire industry - to a higher standard of care and excellence. We have elevated the industry standard beyond the bar others once set, and we strive everyday to practically reinvent home care. Where some might be driven by bottom lines, we passionately pursue the top of the heap. This means we settle for nothing less than the best people, the most caring and competent clinicians, the most innovative industry practices, and the highest levels of integrity. By fostering a genuine culture of fun, energy and empowerment, we attract professionals who love what they do... as the Custom Home Health way resonates with those who love the way we do it.

Consistently and continuously recognized as one of the region's top workplaces, it only follows that the loved ones we care for receive the best in home health care services. When you love to care as much as we do, outcomes are optimized, people's lives are genuinely touched, and meaningful impact is felt everyday, in everything we do.
