Along with the newly opened 15 office locations, the home care provider plans to open additional offices by the end of the year.

Interim HealthCare Inc., a home care, senior care, home health, hospice, and healthcare staffing franchise brand, recently announced it has opened 15 new office locations across the country to increase home healthcare access demands.

"The reality is for more than 50 years, the home care industry has stood at the ready, but only in the last three years has it become abundantly clear that home-based clinicians are integral to how this country can mee the increase in healthcare demand," Jennifer Sheets, CEO of Interim HealthCare, said in a statement.

The organization, which currently has locations across 42 states, is expected to open two additional locations by the end of the year.

"The pandemic pushed the home healthcare industry forward by 15 years in terms of the population's knowledge of home care and we're seeing more and more individuals opt for the superior care that can be provided in one's own home. We are excited to continue growing our footprint to provide access to these crucial services," Sheets said.

In addition to its expansion, Interim HealthCare Inc., also announced the appointments of Steve Schildwachter as senior vice president of brand and Scott Williams as vice president of talent.

Schildwachter will oversee Interim HealthCare's marketing and brand strategies and support the franchise through innovative programs to drive further expansion and growth. Prior to joining Interim HealthCare, he served as the chief operating officer of Franchise Performance Group.

"I'm excited for this new journey with Interim HealthCare and the opportunity to expand the public's knowledge around the wide range of essential home healthcare services offered and the different degrees of care from hospital-level to personal aide," Schildwachter said in a statement. "Interim has an outstanding network of new and multi-generational home health franchise owners and operators, and I look forward to playing my part in strengthening the business and brand."

As vice president of talent, Williams will manage the development and implementation of recruitment strategies to attract and retain high-performing employees. Prior to working with Interim HealthCare, he led their recruitment, onboarding, and marketing strategies for Sonas Home Health Care.

"Staffing challenges are affecting the entire home healthcare industry and meeting demand for home care is directly dependent on the ability to hire qualified professionals so that we can continue providing services to the increasing number of individuals who need it," Williams said in a statement. "My new role will play an important part in navigating this industry issue and ensuring our patients receive the best care possible."

This news comes during Home Care and Hospice month, where every November, the home care and hospice community honors those who work as nurses, home care aides, therapists, and social workers in the sector.

“The pandemic pushed the home healthcare industry forward by 15 years in terms of the population's knowledge of home care and we're seeing more and more individuals opt for the superior care that can be provided in one's own home. We are excited to continue growing our footprint to provide access to these crucial services.”
