CLEARWATER, Fla., Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Med Tech Services, one of South Florida's premier home health care organizations, is changing its trade name to Senior Home Care effective January 1, 2013.
Part of the fabric of Southeast Florida's health care community for over 20 years, Med Tech Services has approximately 200 nurses, clinicians and office personnel based in four branches serving patients from Indian River County down to Miami-Dade County. In 2003, Med Tech Services was acquired by Senior Home Care, Inc., headquartered in Clearwater, Fla.
"Changing the trade name from Med Tech Services to Senior Home Care will not alter our staff or services to patients or referring physicians," explained Chief Executive Officer, Robert Fusco. "The company has not been sold and our ownership and management remains the same. There will be no interruption of service to patients. Our company intends to maximize the benefits of a unified brand identity throughout Florida, where we operate 29 branches and our corporate office. It also helps streamline compliance and marketing processes."
Med Tech Services' Regional Administrator, Charlene Welsh, said that she expects it to be a seamless transition for branch staff, since they have been part of the Senior Home Care family of companies for years. "From nurses who work in the field to our office personnel, everyone is coming together to ensure that our patients, referral sources and contacts in our communities are aware that we're exactly the same, just with a new name," she affirmed. "We look forward to continuing a strong presence in South Florida, and supporting patients as we always have."
Senior Home Care also owns Synergy Home Care, a leading provider of home health services in Louisiana. Because Synergy Home Care represents a separate geographic area, its name remains unchanged.
Senior Home Care, Inc. has been treating seniors throughout Florida and Louisiana with quality home health care services since 1994. With nearly 50 branch locations and 1,800 employees, Senior Home Care is one of the largest home health care providers in the Southeast. Working in conjunction with patients' physicians, Senior Home Care's nurses and clinicians treat more than 50,000 seniors each year in their homes and assisted/independent living facilities. The company's mission is to provide quality patient care in a compassionate and ethical manner while encouraging a lifestyle of independence. For more information, visit www.seniorhomecare.net.
