  • LHC Group, a provider of home health services with operations in 18 states, announced Tuesday it has entered into a joint venture with Three Rivers Community Hospital in Grants Pass to operate Three Rivers Home Care.
    Based in Lafayette, La., LHC Group employs more than 6,000 workers. Three Rivers Home Care, with about 30 employees, is its first Oregon location.
    Three Rivers Home Care will remain in its existing offices at 1550 N.E. Sixth St. It offers skilled nurses who visit patients' homes to provide medical assistance after hospital stays. The office can be reached at 956-6200.
    In a statement released Tuesday, LHC Group said Three Rivers Home Care's net revenue during the most recent 12-month period was about $3.4 million. However, LHC Group doesn't expect the local agency to add materially to its 2009 earnings.
    "We are excited about this new partnership with LHC Group," said Win Howard, Three Rivers Community Hospital's chief executive officer.
    "LHC Group is an acknowledged leader in home care services, and our patients will benefit from the expertise LHC brings to our daily operations," he added. "There will be no interruption in service to patients; this will be a seamless transition for our patients, but one that will result in improved focus and expertise for our home health services."
    LHC Group officially began operations in September 1994 as St. Landry Home Health in Palmetto, a small town in northern St. Landry Parish, north of Lafayette, La.
    Today, LHC Group has operations in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, Alabama, West Virginia, Kentucky, Florida, Tennessee, Georgia, Ohio, Missouri, Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland, Oklahoma and Washington state.
