Working With Physicians

Citrus Valley Home Health is one of the leading home health care providers in the San Gabriel Valley. Much of its success is due to the fact that physicians trust CVHHA to work with them to provide patients with timely and appropriate care in a home setting.

A Special Kind of Service
We know that physicians are busy seeing and treating patients at the office or the hospital, as well as trying to keep up with the latest medical advances. Our job is to provide them with an “extra set of hands and eyes.” Under their direction, we help manage the treatment plan and take care of many of the time-consuming aspects of patient care.

We do this in many ways. We provide high-quality care for patients, whether they require nursing care or rehabilitative services. We act as a comprehensive resource for the patient, answering questions and coordinating both care and non-care related services. We offer a 24-hour on-call nursing support so that we can quickly respond to any situation. And, we keep physicians fully informed about patient progress and any other factors that may affect the prescribed plan of care.

Services That Meet Patients’ Needs
As a full-service provider, Citrus Valley Home Health offers the type of care programs required by patients:
  • Skilled nursing
  • Home health aides
  • Physical, occupational, and speech therapy
  • Intravenous therapy
  • Short-term personal care
  • Social services
  • Palliative care

In addition to providing these comprehensive patient services, we offer the added benefit of our affiliation with one of the top healthcare systems in the San Gabriel Valley—Citrus Valley Medical Center.

As an affiliate of Citrus Valley, we use Meditech, an integrated patient information system. With Meditech we can quickly provide relevant, up-to-date information about any patient who has been treated by a CVHP-affiliated physician or in one of our medical or specialty centers. We can also access resources from our medical center campuses or one of our specialty medicine centers.

A Home Health Team Physicians Know and Trust
One of the reasons physicians like working with Citrus Valley Home Health is the caliber of our staff.

All of our nurses, therapists, and aides meet the exacting requirements of their professions. For example, our nurses are trained to the same high standard as Citrus Valley Medical Center nurses and receive the same continuing education and training opportunities. Because we are a part of Citrus Valley Health Partners, our staff is familiar with the physician groups affiliated with the medical center and the individual needs and preferences of many physicians.

Physicians also know that they will receive the personalized attention unique to small agencies along with the sophisticated services found only in a large hospital setting. At Citrus Valley Home Health Agency, physicians and patients are our number one priority. Every day, 365 days a year.
