York geriatrics makes house calls
YORK South Carolina’s only geriatric wellness system, Providence House Calls, has expanded to the area and is accepting patients to receive primary and specialty doctor care in the home setting.
“We believe that if patients can be seen in the home, there are better outcomes for both the patient and the healthcare system as a whole,” said Dr. Romin Shah. “Our goal is to improve the patient’s quality of life and reduce emergency room visits and hospitalizations that will result with the patient being able to live at home longer. This can be done by seeing the patient at home, and spending more time with the patient.”
Providence House Calls is the area’s only community, faith-based organization.
“With modern technology, house call visits can produce better clinical outcomes than other outpatient settings,” Shah said. “Lab work, blood draws, and even complicated X-ray procedures can all be done in the home setting.”
Most services are covered under private insurance, Medicare and Medicaid. Providence’s office is located at 1736 Old York Road, York, and covers York, Lancaster, Union and Chester counties.
