Amedisys – Why Work For Us?


Our Company

Amedisys is a leading home health and hospice care company focused on bringing home the continuum of care. We deliver personalized home health and hospice care to thousands of patients and their families, in the comfort of their own homes.

Our care teams deliver personalized home health and hospice care to approximately 380,000 patients each year. Amedisys is a post-acute care partner to more than 2,233 hospitals and 61,900 physicians across the country.

We provide the care that is best for our patients, whether that is home-based recovery and rehabilitation after an operation or injury, care focused on empowering them to manage a chronic disease, palliative care for those with a terminal illness, or hospice care at the end of life.
Amedisys is a recognized innovator, being one of the first in the industry to equip its clinicians with point-of-care laptop technology and referring physicians with an internet portal that enables real-time coordination of patient care seamlessly. 

Amedisys also has the industry's first-ever nationwide Care Transitions program, designed to reduce unnecessary hospital readmissions through patient and caregiver health coaching and care coordination, which starts in the hospital and continues throughout completion of the patient's home health plan of care.

Leading Care in the Home

Amedisys is a leading home health and hospice provider, delivering patient-centered care within a personalized setting since 1982. Clinicians are the center of what we do. With a focus on what’s best for our clinicians, and ultimately what's best for our patients, we make business decisions to drive the company forward as a leading provider of care in the home.

Amedisys has long championed innovations to improve the quality of patient care. We know technology alone cannot drive high-quality care, but coupled with clinically excellent caregivers, technology can help simplify the job of the clinicians. We use industry-standard software that truly enables clinicians to work more efficiently and effectively. We’re focused on simplifying processes so you can focus on your patients.

In 2010, we were the first home health organization to implement a nationwide care transitions program to help patients safely transfer from the hospital to their home. Our chronic care programs are based on the current best practices so our patients can experience the benefit of advances in medical research. And we were the first to receive accreditation for integrated healthcare standards for behavioral health.

Our goal is to build a new model of care that is patient-centered and focused on helping them regain independence and live healthy lives. Our focus is also on giving patients facing a life-limiting illness the freedom to live all the days of their lives by offering comfort, dignity, quality of life and time.

We believe in care that treats people individually and holistically. We need the most talented, caring professionals to build that new model.

Build your career helping care for patients like you would your own loved ones.
