As of September 1, 2016, South County Quality Care—a private duty homecare agency that has been part of South County Health for 20 years—will become part of Cathleen Naughton Associates, a well-respected homecare agency.
South County Health will maintain all South County Quality Care patient records. Questions about records, or any other matter related to the transition can be directed to 401-789-8443.
The staff at South County Quality Care are working to make the transition as seamless as possible for clients, all of whom have been notified by mail of the upcoming change.
“It has been a pleasure and an honor to work with our clients,” Pam Jeffrey, RN, president/CEO of South County Quality Care, noted. “We appreciate the trust and loyalty the community has placed in us through the years and are confident Cathleen Naughton Associates will provide the same level of care.”
Cathleen Naughton Associates is accredited by the Joint Commission and has served the South County community for many years. CNA has agreed to offer employment to many of the staff of South County Quality Care to ensure continuity of care for its current clients.
South County Health will continue to provide certified home healthcare—home visits by registered nurses, physical and occupational therapists and other disciplines—through South County Home Health. The services of South County Home Health are recognized and reimbursed by Medicare and private insurers.
