About Us

Why Us?

At Pinnacle Home Health our clients are very important to us and our staff. It's why we choose to work weekends and provide emergency assistance 24 hours a day. It's why we specialize our care and clinical treatments to your needs as prescribed by your physician. It's why we accept most insurance plans including Medicare and Medicaid as well as most commercial insurance plans like Blue Cross Blue Shield and Humana. 

As you can see we've crafted our home health service to provide our patients with the service they need where they need it the most.There's no better testament to the quality of care that we provide than the reputation we've garnered in and around the Baton Rouge community. More importantly we've achieved our high standing organically without the aid of a big advertising budget from national chains. It's all been achieved through hard work and our commitment to serving the members of OUR community with quality care. Don't just ask us "Why Us?" Feel free to ask one of our many satisfied families that same question.

If you happen to be a current or past Pinnacle Home Health family please share your experience with us. Your input is invaluable to help others make this difficult decision. Plus, we love a good story. How Are We Doing?

 
Mission/Vision 

Mission Statement: We are in business to help individuals and companies in the medical community create a more wholesome environment and ultimately providing physical, mental and spiritual healing for all.

To us healing doesn't just come from the medical services we provide. We strongly believe that it's important to not only treat the physical pain but address the spiritual and mental pain also. It's our goal to not only address the way we provide home health but to personalize the quality the healthcare industry operates as well. 

Our approach is to employ people whose passion is only rivaled by their skill. It allows our staff to perform much more than basic health care. We assist with all facets of care including nutritional assessments, patient education, infusion services, coordination of care before discharge from the hospital and coordination of durable medical equipment (DME) and infusions services. 

As our name suggests we want to reach the apex of home health care. The results can't be found in a spreadsheet or bar graph. We simply measure by the "thanks" we get.
