people who worked at the Health

Department) is now located in the

lower level of 307 Vernedale Dr.,

Mount Vernon (below Dr. Reed’s office.)

The Knox County Home Health staff includes, from left, PT Kelly Barnett, Director Courtney Lower,
PTA Nikki Flethcher-Ewers, RN Greta Cornell, RN Judy Miller, RN Brenda Stutz,
RN Glenn Barteau and Administrative Assistant Lisa Worley.


While there has been a change in management and a change in location, you can still expect
the same reliable service and quality home health care that you have received in the past.

Patients who are homebound, either temporarily or permanently, and require medical care may qualify for home health care.
Services are available regardless of age, income, race, or disability.  Private Insurance, Worker’s Comp.,
VA, Medicare & Medicaid accepted.

Our home health program offers an alternative to extended hospital stays and nursing homes by 
providing professional medical and personal services while teaching the family
ways to take a more active role in the patient’s care.
