Amedisys – Why Work For Us?



Our Company

Amedisys is a leading provider of healthcare in the home with a vision of becoming the premiere solution for patients across the country to age in place. From home health to hospice to personal care, Amedisys team members provide quality, clinically-distinctive care to more than 376,000 patients every year.
 

Every life is precious and tells an incredible story, and we celebrate that each day by honoring our patients with genuine, personal attention. Everything we do, from the boardroom to our nationwide network of care centers, is centered on the best care possible for those who have entrusted us with their well-being and comfort. We work closely with doctors and other healthcare providers to coordinate services, and every patient has an individual plan of care that meets their specific needs.

Amedisys recognizes that nothing we do is possible without our incredible team. For all employees, whether they’re on the front lines delivering direct care or supporting our clinical team, this isn’t just a job – it’s a higher calling. We believe in supporting them as much as they support our success by building a culture of engagement and investing in their futures with ongoing training and support.

Hear from our patients.

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.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Amedisys in April 2018.

    Interview

    I was contacted very quickly by a recruiter and had an interview scheduled the next day. The interview was very informal and so I didn’t feel like I was prepared.
