Applegate HomeCare & Hospice
Applegate HomeCare & Hospice is a local, family owned Utah company that has been providing high quality health care services to our community for over 27 years. We have six branches servicing the Wasatch Front, Summit County, Wasatch County and Southern Utah. Our business foundation always keeps patients at the heart of our focus. Excellence in patient care is not measurable, but is founded in the principle of doing the right thing in our clinical care delivery. This foundation is based on the structure of a 5-pointed star with patient care at the center. We begin with customer service at the first point, which is focused on managing our patients through excellent care coordination delivered with compassion, competence, and genuine concern for our patients. This concentration on strong clinical care for our patients leads to better clinical outcomes, which is the emphasis and core strength of our company.
It is our belief that we will be better leaders, better managers, even happier people if we are free to focus our attentions on the quality of our service, satisfaction of customers, and the acknowledgement and fair treatment of our staff, instead of the company’s profitability. This is the formula for success. This philosophy is our greatest advantage because attention is given to the little things that provide a more compassionate and personal way for people to be helped through illness, injury, and the end-of-life process.
If we focus on our values of honesty, integrity, and respect, we will have a first class operation maintained by our tradition of hospitality and healthcare excellence. Remember, we believe patient care always comes first, bigger is not as important as better, and people are more important than profits.
