Long Term Care becomes LifeH2H

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Long Term Care, doing business as Long’s HME, has a new owner, a new name and new services. Dewey Roof, a partner in Long Term Care, has taken over the HME business and created a parent company called LifeH2H (Hospital to Home) to oversee LifeHME and the newly formed LifeTouch, a patient discharge management company. The changes will roll out over the next few months and be complete by the end of the year. “There is a tremendous need for patient management once outside the doors of hospitals and doctors’ offices,” Roof stated in a press release. Patients are, in general, left to manage their own care, and LifeH2H, LifeHME, and LifeTOUCH will help patients navigate the complex healthcare landscape, while creating a better post discharge experience, he believes. Kenneth Long, also a partner in Long Term Care, has absorbed the pharmacy services into his drug store business.
