At Claiborne Memorial Medical Center, we place great value on family involvement in the treatment process. We urge family members to participate as much as possible in the family program we provide. Participation in community support groups is also encouraged. Throughout the course of treatment, the patient's case manager will maintain contact with the family and will provide or arrange for family therapy as needed. The patient's recovery is enhanced when the family participates in the treatment process.
Claiborne Home Health is a hospital based home health agency proudly owned and operated by Homer Memorial Hospital since February 1991. Our mission is to provide competent and cost effective health care services to the home health patient in a compassionate and respectful manner. Home health provides professional and paraprofessional health care in the home setting for patients who do not require care or hospitalization on a 24 hour a day basis. The physician must order the services and certify that the patient is homebound, needs skilled care and that the services are medically necessary. Claiborne Home Health has been honored to rank in the top 25% of home health care providers nationwide in 2006, 2008, 2011 and 2012. Being noted as one of the top performers in the nation in a very competitive environment shows that Claiborne Home Health is dedicated to quality and performance. Medicare and Medicaid, Veteran's Administration and private pay, as well as, most major medical Insurance will pay for most home health services. Sevices provided through home health include professional nursing care, home health aide services, medical social worker services, as well as, physical and occupational therapy.

In 2008 Claiborne Healthcare Foundation established Critical Care.Close to Home, a three year fundraising campaign for Claiborne Memorial Medical Center. This three phase project included the renovation of the ICU, Medical-Surgical Nurses Station, and the Foster Family Cafeteria. The original goal set for the project was $1 million. Through the dedication of many volunteers and the generosity of the hospital employees and donors in the community the initial goal was reached in 2011. Construction is now underway on a new six bed Intensive Care Unit, nurse station and family waiting room. The new wing will afford the opportunity for uninterrupted service for the hospital?s critical care patients while constructing a state-of-the-art ICU that is in compliance with state and federal codes. Due to inflation and the adoption of a superior plan the cost of the project has increased. Because of the need the Claiborne Healthcare Foundation is continuing to seek support for the much needed project. Claiborne Healthcare Foundation is an independent non-profit organization governed by a volunteer board established to fund capital improvements for Claiborne Memorial Medical Center. All funds donated to the foundation may be used solely for the project adopted by the board.
