Nursing Resources teams with Home Care by Black StoneWritten by Duane Ramsey | | email@example.com
Nursing Resources Home Health Care of Maumee has become a subsidiary of Home Care by Black Stone and will operate as Nursing Resources by Black Stone in Northwest Ohio.
“We really needed to make this move for our company at this time. Black Stone’s technological resources and knowledge of home care market shifts will greatly benefit us as we face challenges adapting to the ever-changing health care environment,” said Darren Horrigan, administrator of Nursing Resources.
Nursing Resources is one of Northwest Ohio’s largest providers of Medicare-covered skilled nursing, therapy services and PASSPORT-covered home care services. Black Stone is a large provider of health care services for those on Medicare and Medicaid, as well as PASSPORT patients, based in southwestern Ohio.
“Nursing Resources, as a premier provider in Northwest Ohio, is an ideal partner for Black Stone. We are honored to add them to the Black Stone family,” David Tramontana, CEO of Home Care by Black Stone, stated in the announcement of the partnership.
Home Care by Black Stone is a leading provider of home-based primary care, skilled nursing care, and non-medical assisted care, which is very similar to what Nursing Resources does.
“Overall, the partnership will allow us to provide quality care more efficiently to the Northwest Ohio communities for years to come,” Tramontana stated.
Horrigan said the local operation serves 450 patients in Northwest Ohio and continues to grow.
The firm serves much of the region from its Maumee headquarters, including Toledo, Bowling Green and Wauseon. Its branch in Fremont serves patients in that community, as well as the Sandusky and Tiffin areas.
“They (Black Stone) are very similar to us and we expect to learn from each other. There are no plans to change our patient care but bring many innovative resources and technology here through Black Stone,” Horrigan said.
He maintained that none of their patients would experience any change in their current care or in the home care aides assigned to their cases.
Horrigan said they felt it was important to maintain the Nursing Resources brand and reputation, which is the reason for using the name Nursing Resources by Black Stone.
Nursing Resources has about 250 employees, 50 of whom are classified as full-time, according to Horrigan. They have another 75-100 working full-time hours and that same number working part-time.
“It’s always a struggle to find qualified home care workers,” said Horrigan, a registered nurse.
Nursing Resources was founded in 1992 and Horrigan joined the organization in 1996. Home Care by Black Stone was established in 1996 and now employs more than 1,000 nurses, therapists and home care aides.
