Five Points Healthcare is now part of the Aveanna Healthcare family of companies, one of the largest providers of homecare in the nation and a leading provider of home healthcare and hospice services. Based in Atlanta, Georgia the Company was founded in 2011 by a team of seasoned home health professionals who had a vision to build a new healthcare company that would successfully blend their diverse experiences and create a premier home health and hospice organization. The goal of the founding members was to combine the knowledge and expertise they gained working with large, national home health and hospice companies with the personal touch, focus on patient care and commitment to employees they experienced working with smaller, locally owned companies. The result was the creation of Five Points Healthcare; a company that possesses industry leading experience yet maintains a small-company feel that is committed to its five key stakeholders – Patients – Employees – Physicians – Providers – Communities.
Five Points Healthcare believes that most people prefer to receive care at home whenever possible and patients deserve high-quality options which will allow them to remain independent in the comfort of their own homes. The Five Points senior leadership team has spent their entire careers in the home health setting and is committed to providing the best solution to ensure patients receive the quality care they deserve.
