CenterLight Health System, a New York-based long-term care provider, has launched CenterLight Certified Home Health Agency to provide short-term care to individuals who need skilled health services at home.

Services begin with a patient assessment, including physical and mental status, an evaluation of the health and safety of the patient’s home and caregiver resources. A primary care nurse develops a care plan, and the physician approves the final plan.

“This new offering exemplifies CenterLight’s commitment to provide a comprehensive continuum of care for patients in the New York area,” said Michael Fassler, president and CEO of CenterLight Health System.
