Sentara Home Care Recognized for Quality

Sentara Home Care Services received a ‘Gold Award’ designation from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for its participation in the Home Health Quality Improvement National Campaign.

Sentara Home Care was already using many of the best practices recommended to reduce hospital readmissions and emergency room visits, such as using telehealth technology to monitor vital signs and early identification of ambulatory needs to reduce falls and injuries.

Sentara Home Care is now in Northern Virginia. Whether you need nursing care, rehabilitative services, medical equipment or respiratory services, our central intake specialists are trained to assist you.

Home healthcare services can be requested by a patient, physician, friend, or family member. A physician may prescribe home care for a patient as follow-up care after surgery or a major illness. Patients can be eligible for home care services regardless of prior hospitalization.

Our financial counselors can help determine insurance reimbursement and file the necessary paperwork. We accept most major insurances including Medicare and Medicaid and are accredited by the Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP).

The Woodbridge Sentara Home Care office is located at 3985 Prince William Parkway, Suite 204, and can be reached at 571-659-0687.
