About Us

We employ a staff of 40 specialists in a variety of fields to support our 300 caregivers and 1000 patients on service each day.

The MD Companies have been a trusted provider of home health services in the greater Phoenix area since 1985, and represent one of the largest and most experienced agencies in Arizona. Very few agencies offer the full range of services provided by MD. Non-medical, supportive services such as companions and assistance with tasks of daily living are offered through MD Home Assist, and medical-based/skilled home health services, such as nursing and physical therapy are offered through State Licensed & Medicare Certified MD Home Health.

This “full service” element of our companies is a special benefit to our patients, knowing that should their service needs change or expand, the transition is seamless and they will not have to search for another agency when that time comes. We call that “continuity of care”.

Since our inception, we have provided medical and non-medical care to over 50,000 individuals in the Valley including the elderly, developmentally disabled, chronically ill and children with disabilities. Last year alone, we provided care to over 4,000 patients. Our source of patients has come through referrals from physicians, insurance companies, state and county agencies, schools, case managers and private parties. We receive periodic audits of our operations from many of these referral sources as well as by the Arizona Department of Health Services. We continue to earn their trust through our high standards and excellent track record of quality care, business practices and ethics.
