Home Care Services

North Kansas City Hospital’s Home Health program offers a range of services to help you stay in your home when recovering from an illness or injury or when you live with a medical condition. Our professional staff will work with you and your doctor to develop a customized care plan to meet your specific medical needs.

Our nurses and therapists are compassionate caregivers who are specially trained to care for patients with chronic conditions such as heart and lung diseases, cancer, diabetes, wounds and ostomies. We can also help with post-surgical care and short-term recovery needs.
