AUSTIN, MN — Home Health services will no longer be provided by Mayo Clinic Health System in Austin starting June 1, 2012. These services will be provided by other local providers. The hospice program will remain open.
“When we started the home health program 28 years ago, we were one of the only providers of the service in the community — today, there are at least 12 companies that provide high-quality home care services to the community and it is their only focus,” says Diane Twedell, vice-president of operations at Mayo Clinic Health System in Austin.
“As we work to integrate care throughout the community and for the entire population, we are continually looking for ways to involve other community partners in the care. These providers are able to provide the necessary care efficiently and have a track record of working well with the medical center,” says Twedell.
Mayo Clinic Health System in Austin will work directly with each of the 60 patients involved to transition their care to another provider of their choice and with affected staff to provide a smooth transition for both groups.
