Parkview Health and CommonSpirit Health at Home have formed a new joint venture to provide home-based healthcare throughout northeast Indiana. The partnership, named Parkview Health at Home, launched on May 19.

Parkview, a leader in providing high-quality home care services, has formed this new partnership with CommonSpirit Health at Home, part of one of the nation’s largest nonprofit health systems, to enhance services, build a stronger and more versatile organization and to expand home care offerings and value-based solutions.

“As demand for home health care continues to grow, Parkview has a vision to expand access to the high-quality care our communities deserve,” said Dr. Greg Johnson, regional market president, Parkview Health. “This partnership allows Parkview to work with another industry expert to enhance the patient experience. Together, we’ll maximize resources and best practices to meet the evolving needs of the region. As we continue to provide compassionate care, our goal is to advance the way it’s delivered.”

Under the new joint venture, Parkview home health co-workers became CommonSpirit employees. All home health co-workers were offered roles with CommonSpirit or similar roles within other areas of Parkview. The majority accepted roles with CommonSpirit, and many were also offered an opportunity for advancement.

“Throughout the transition, both organizations worked hard to care for our people and respect their preferences, such as schedules and work locations,” added Dr. Johnson. “Change can be difficult, and we appreciate the flexibility and teamwork we’ve seen over the last few weeks. Our people truly make all the difference, and we look forward to serving our community with them as Parkview Health at Home.”

The partnership enables the integration of CommonSpirit Health at Home’s state-of-the-art electronic medical record system, Homecare Homebase, and their successful chronic disease management programs.

“Parkview Health and CommonSpirit Health at Home share common core, organizational values and are highly aligned around long-term strategies to expand access to care in the home,” said CommonSpirit Health at Home interim president and CEO, Trisha Crissman. “Both organizations will partner together as we align our strengths to home health care services to care for more people in need within the community.”
