Hospice Savannah Joins Growing Ranks of Capstone HME Hospice Partners

Thursday, April 1st, 2021

Hospice Savannah, one of the leading mission-driven hospices in the Southeast, has selected owner-operated Capstone HME to handle all of its durable medical equipment (DME) needs for the more than 190–200 hospice and palliative care patients Hospice Savannah serves each day.

"As the area's oldest and most respected hospice provider, Hospice Savannah is focused on quality and service," said Hospice Savannah President and CEO Kathleen D. Benton, Dr.PH, MA. "After an extensive review considering all of our options, we simply concluded that Capstone HME would best support our vision to provide the right care in the right place at the right time to the patients and families for whom we care."

To support Hospice Savannah, Capstone HME has opened a local warehouse and hired local drivers. "Capstone HME believes that the best way to support hospice providers and the patients and families they serve is to invest in the local community," stated Capstone HME Vice President Daniel Peake. "We do that not just by establishing a local warehouse, but also by employing drivers and DME experts who are hired for their skill and knowledge as well as their commitment to serving as an extension of the hospice's patient care teams."

"Our Hospice Savannah clinical teams are particularly looking forward to the expanded formulary of quality medical equipment that Capstone HME provides and Capstone HME's on-the ground, 24/7 availability and support," Benton added. "Our hospice administrators are looking forward to the simplified and transparent billing and the direct line to senior executives responsible for ensuring all of our patients' needs are met in a timely manner."
