Medical and Non-Medical Home Health Care Since 1985

About MD Home Health/MD Home Assist

MD Home Health and MD Home Assist are highly trusted and respected full-service providers of home health services in the greater Phoenix area.
We have been in business over 35 years and are one of the largest and most experienced agencies in Arizona. MD Home Health, which is State Licensed & Medicare Certified, offers medical-based/skilled home health services, such as nursing and physical therapy. MD Home Assist offers a full range of services provided by non-medical supportive services such as companions and assistance with tasks of daily living.
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 60,000 individuals in the Valley including the elderly, people with developmental disabilities, 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.
