The Knox County Health Department has been providing home health services since 1966 – we truly are your “Hometown Home Health” agency. Our program offers an alternative to extended hospital stays and nursing homes by providing professional medical and personal services while teaching the family ways to take a more active role in the patient’s care.
It should always be your choice when deciding on a Home Health program; an agency should never be assigned to you. Call us at 740-392-2200 to see how we can help you.
