BILLINGS, Mont. – The Rocky Mountain Home Care program serving Billings and the surrounding communities announced today that it will take on the Compassus name effective immediately. The name change is part of a rebranding initiative following Compassus’ purchase of substantially all Genesis HealthCare hospice and home health programs, including 10 community-based hospice programs and seven home care programs, earlier this year.
This acquisition brought together two highly respected providers of compassionate post-acute care, creating one of the nation’s largest private independent providers of home health, palliative and hospice services.
“We are excited to officially be a part of the Compassus family,” said Becky Gilbert, executive director of Compassus—Billings. “We look forward to continuing to provide the highest standard of care to our patients and their families under the Compassus name.”
The home health program provides a range of skilled services tailored to the unique needs of each individual, including pain and symptom management, medication management, and physical, speech and occupational therapies. Care is provided by nurses, therapists and social workers in a patient’s home or assisted living facility.
Compassus’ mission is to provide post-acute care to patients and their families with compassion, integrity and excellence. The company’s goal is provide the greatest possible comfort and care in life’s most intimate and challenging moments.
With the Genesis acquisition, Compassus now operates more than 165 hospice, palliative and home health programs in 30 states and entered markets in two new states, including Idaho and Montana.
