Pemi-Baker Community Health Changing Name to Pemi-Baker Hospice and Home Health

For fifty-five years, Pemi-Baker Community Health has followed their mission to improve the health and wellbeing of the communities they serve by providing excellence in health care services in your home and at their facility at 101 Boulder Point Drive in Plymouth. With more than 70 employees and volunteers, they have grown to meet the needs of 28 surrounding towns, and as their new name and logo show, they are focusing on Hospice, Palliative and Home Health Care moving forward.

Pemi-Baker Hospice & Home Health is pleased to announce that their outpatient physical therapy (PT) and occupational therapy (OT) services will now be overseen by Mid-State Health starting January 1st, 2022. Pemi-Baker will maintain their offices at Boulder Point with a new entrance and will be serving patients as far north as Benton, Lincoln, Franconia, Sugar Hill, Bethlehem and Littleton. Their Doctors, Nurses, LNA’s, Chaplains, Social Workers, Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapists will continue to provide excellent services in the home setting. They are also pleased their current Senior Director of Home Health, Palliative Care, & Hospice, Danielle Paquette-Horne RN, is taking the position of Executive Director.

“With the growing need for hospice and home health in central and northern New Hampshire, this transition will allow us to focus our resources and expand our services to the patients and families who are in need of professional home healthcare,” said Danielle Paquette-Horne.

Mid-State Health Center launches Outpatient Physical and Occupational Therapy as a new service.

Starting January 1, 2022, Mid-State will begin offering physical and occupational therapy services under its umbrella of primary care services. Through a collaboration with Pemi-Baker Hospice and Home Health, Pemi-Baker’s trusted and skilled Outpatient Physical and Occupational Therapy team will be joining Mid-State Health Center to provide PT/OT services. This transition will further enhance Mid-State’s integrated approach to health care while providing individuals in need of physical and occupational therapy with the same high-quality care, provided by the same team, in the same familiar space.

Dr. Robert MacLeod, Mid-State CEO says, “We are committed to providing health care services that meet the needs of the whole person. Bringing PT/OT services under our umbrella is another step for Mid-State to strengthen our integrated care model, while allowing Pemi-Baker to deliver services to patients where they need it most in the home care setting.”

The two organizations will be working closely over the upcoming months to ensure a seamless transition for all. To learn more about this transition, please visit midstatehealth.org/OPT.
