We are Passionate, Patient Caregivers
Patients are our priority.
At Ernest Health, we are passionate about patient care. We consider it a privilege to be able to provide services to patients and their family members within their communities. We are committed to providing the highest level of care available, and never take our responsibility to our patients for granted.
We strive to create healing and nurturing environments for our patients that not only meet their medical needs, but address their emotional and social needs as well. We believe that this comprehensive approach can help our patients recover more fully – allowing them to return home with the highest level of independence possible, and helping to minimize any return hospital visits.
