One Company's Journey Expanding from Private Pay into Home Health via Home Health Care News

document-3268750_1920-1An article from Home Health Care News, entitled, "Home Health Companions Among Fastest-Growing Private Companies" shares the story of a home care/home health care company featured in Inc. magazine’s annual list of the 5,000 fastest-growing privately held companies in the U.S.
The Home Healthcare News article notes the following details about the company:
Founded in 2011, the company employed 24 people five years ago; it currently employs 80. In 2018, Home Health Companions brought in about $3.1 million in revenue.

Company leadership attributes some of its success to its private-pay model, which it sees as more stable than Medicare or Medicaid.

“The benefit for us is that we work directly with our client,” Lisa Shardon, president of Home Health Companions, told Home Health Care News. “We have to adhere to the standards of licensing in Texas, but our model is that we get paid by our clients, so it’s based on client need.”
