Home health is currently the largest growing industry in
healthcare, and the Memorial Home Health team reflects that
continued growth. Our team has a continually high census, which
allows for a consistent work schedule.
Our home health nurses are incentivized to see a certain patient
load per day. If they see more than that in a week, they are
compensated financially. The home health nurse will travel within a
60 mile radius of Springfield. Memorial utilizes an intake
department that ensures the case loads are evenly distributed.
Our Home Health Team supports all of our affiliate hospitals in
Decatur, Jacksonville, Lincoln and Taylorville including two Magnet
designated facilities, a Level 1 Trauma Center and teaching
hospital with a strong partnership with Southern Illinois
University School of Medicine.
