BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A Baton Rouge hospice company is joining Champion Management, which will bring more services to patients and their families.
The partnership between Champion Management healthcare services and Hospice In His Care was announced Friday morning, according to a media release from the companies.
Hospice In His Care will be closely associated with Champion Management’s Superior Home Health, also of Baton Rouge, but will retain their own identity within the Champion organization. Superior Home Health, part of the Champion family since 2017, has served in its multi parish service area since 1991.
“Hospice In His Care has provided an excellent level of Hospice care to families in a 50 mile radius of Baton Rouge for a decade and a half and has an outstanding reputation for patient care, having received the Deyta Hospice Honors Award for three years including their latest in 2018," John Stagg, CEO and President of Champion Management said in a statement. "The quality of care and the patient focused values of Hospice In His Care are an excellent fit with the healthcare service approach that is practiced across all Champion Management programs. We are most pleased to now include them as part of our growing healthcare family.”
The hospice will continue its services in the 17 parishes during its transition with Champion Management.
Some of the services that will come from the partnership would help patients better manage their healthcare at home, and to reduce hospital emergency rooms and doctors office visits.
