Sentara Home Care Services is pleased to announce it will acquire ownership of Martha Jefferson HomeCare, effective October 1, 2008.
Under its new name of Sentara Home Care Services, the agency will continue to provide home health services, including skilled nursing, and physical, occupational and speech therapy, while adding new programs.
“We are excited about continuing our affiliation with Martha Jefferson Hospital and providing the same compassionate, high-quality and cost-effective services their home care agency has provided in the Charlottesville community over the years,” says Ray Darcey, vice president, Sentara Enterprises.
Sentara Home Care has had a management agreement with Martha Jefferson HomeCare since June 2008.
