We take pride and pleasure in the high percentage of patients that leave our facility returning to their optimal independence.

Physician Services

We know that continuity is critical in the healthcare industry. That’s why at HVHC we allow any primary care physician to follow their patients care. If your primary care physician chooses not to follow your care, our Medical Director or other designee for your physician will coordinate your care in our facility. Upon discharge your medical records will be sent to your primary physician and they will resume your care.

Social Services

At HVHC we take living personally. We understand that some of the biggest barriers to our patients returning home are not related to their physical health. That’s why we offer our patients customized Social Services, including:

  • Extensive transition to home planning
  • Family and caregiver education and support
  • On-site psychiatrist and psychologist counseling
  • Beautician and barber services
