When we first started Quality One Care, our goal was to provide home care to all residents of the state of Maryland – pediatrics and adult. However, our long term goal was to specialize in pediatric care. It took us three years to obtain our residential service agency license. The main challenge we had at the moment was hiring the right staff and funding. To achieve these goals, while waiting to receive our Medicaid License, QOC started subcontracting to other private home health care companies. These allowed us to operate on a smaller scale with lower overhead costs, whilst still managing to serve with premium quality. By the time we acquired our Medicaid license, we had managed to grow our team of staff members, including, RNs and LPNs.
We are proud to say that since we acquired our Medicaid license, we have expanded not only our staff but also our services. When we started in 2007, we were offering 2 main services – private duty and home health aide. As a result of our Medicaid license acquisition in 2010, we were able to expand our services to include skilled nursing visits, home infusion and rehabilitative services. Currently, QOC has served hundreds of referral from Children’s National Medical Center (CNMC), MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, MedStar Washington Hospital Center, The Johns Hopkins Hospital, Inova Fairfax Hospital and many more hospitals in the DMV. Our administrative and management team consist of the Owner and CEO, a director of nursing, nursing supervisors and a business manager. Our board of directors is currently sitting highly qualified and respected community members.
With our experience and current track record, we have high projections for the company and this has led us to the next journey of opening a branch in the District of Columbia. Our goal is to focus on offering niche services to the pediatric home health sector. We believe that with our already established connections and partnerships with highly reputable organizations such as the Children’s National Medical Center and the HSC pediatric center, we will be able to bring a balanced set of services and experience to the table.
