Avita Home Health & Hospice started out as HomeCare Matters, which was formed by the merger of two highly respected organizations; Tri Hospital Home Health Care, serving the area since 1985 and Crawford County Hospice, serving patients since 1990. In the beginning of HomeCare Matters’ existence, the agency was owned by Galion Community Hospital, Bucyrus Community Hospital and Crestline Hospital. Over time, as hospital ownership changed, HomeCare Matters was partly owned by Avita Health System and partly owned by Ohio Health. In 2017, Avita Health System took full ownership of HomeCare Matters. This relationship solidified HomeCare Matters’ already positive reputation in the community and offered an opportunity to be viewed as a valuable service line in an already respected health system.

In February 2020, HomeCare Matters took the final official step in their relationship with Avita Health System by changing their name to Avita Home Health & Hospice. This name change gives the agency a new look while providing the same excellent care with the same highly qualified, compassionate team.
