(April 10, 2015) Nurse Professionals Home Care LLC celebrated its move to West Ocean City with a ribbon-cutting ceremony last month.
The company opened in February 2000 in Kent Island, then moved to Ocean City four years ago. It was relocated to West Ocean City in February.
According to the company’s website, Nurse Professionals Home Care provides support and services through companionship services or skilled nursing care to “improve lives and enable independent living at home.”
Nurse Professionals Home Care President Anita Logsdon Battista said she started the company after seeing a need for “quality RN and allied health staffing.”
“I have always been in the medical field,” she said. “I was a medical sales manager for a medical equipment company upon graduation from college [and] went back to college for a third college degree in nursing and worked as a OR/PACU RN at a large Baltimore hospital.”
Battista said Nurse Professionals Home Care expanded “out of the continued growth of the company and the need for more office space.”
Nurse Professionals Home Care is the only company on the Eastern Shore licensed for both nursing and allied health staffing and home care.
Battista said the company focuses on care on the Eastern Shore, although licensing allows Nurse Professionals Home Care to serve the entire state.
“We provide hospital staffing for some hospitals in the Baltimore-Washington areas through the Maryland Hospital Association,” Battista said. “The demand for home care is growing as more people are living longer and are more multi-symptom. The concern in home care and in care for our aging population is how to pay for this care. In our initial RN Assessment meeting with a client, we cover what options may be available to help to pay for these services.”
Nurse Professionals Home Care is located at 9921 Stephen Decatur Highway, Suite C3. For more information, call 443-664-6915 or visit www.nurseprofessionalshomecare.com.
