A word from upper management.

Extended Home Care is an organization that is constantly growing. In an industry that, justifiably, has become increasingly demanding, monitored and complex each year, our extraordinary growth is attributable not to chance, but rather to the hard work, dedication and sound judgment manifested by each employee and their commitment to excellence. It is indicative, also, of having quality leadership in all areas of our organization, with our supervisory personnel possessing the necessary experience in home health care that is vital in the management of our delivery of services.

Throughout this growth, however, we do not lose sight of our stated mission: quality of patient care is our primary objective and is our reason for existence. Thus we take special pride in the comprehensive and positive survey report, recently conducted by the New York State Department of Health, indicating substantial compliance in both clinical and non clinical areas. Our rapid growth notwithstanding, we retain our "small company" philosophy relative to the personalized care, concern and dignity offered to each patient admitted to our services. Our employees shall continue to comport themselves in a like manner in the future.

Among our priorities are the responsibilities of serving the Persons with Developmental Disabilities population. Extended Home Care has become a recognized leader throughout New York City and Long Island in providing services to PWDD children and their families. Perhaps our greatest challenge is the successful recruitment of professional nurses, therapists, social workers, and the utilization of properly trained and supervised home health aides who are capable of serving the medically complex needs of these children, thus enabling them to remain in their home environment. Our employees are also generously and unequivocally volunteer their time and effort in the participation of fund raising activities, organized by various organizations that benefit special needs children and their families.
