Great Lakes Home Health and Hospice Has a New Name - Great Lakes Caring℠

New Name, Logo, Tagline and Website Reflect Great Lakes Caring's Ongoing Commitment to Superior Quality Care and Positioning for Future Growth

Today, Great Lakes Home Health and Hospice announced it has a new name, Great Lakes Caring.  The new name and brand more accurately reflect a core commitment to advancing the continuum of home health and hospice care to customers, patients and community.

“Great Lakes Caring is our new brand name, but we are much more than a name. Our name marks an exciting new era for our company. It reflects who we are today, and where we are going,” said Great Lakes Caring CEO and founder William Deary. 
“Our new name is symbolic of our continued commitment to superior quality patient care. Great Lakes Caring embodies who we are and what we do. In fact, we like to say that OUR NAME IS OUR MISSION. We are passionate about caring and building strong relationships with those we are provided the honor to serve.” 

“The use of the word “caring” in our name evokes many of our core values, including family, collaboration and quality.  Our new name is another step toward our goal of being the number-one provider of health care whether in someone’s home or in a facility,” explained Deary.

In 17 years, Great Lakes Caring has grown organically from a small, two-room office with a staff of four into an operation of what is now one of the Midwest’s largest providers of home health care and hospice services with 14 offices in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio.  Its recent acquisitions include: In-House Hospice and Palliative Care, one of the largest hospice providers in Michigan and Ohio; Community Home Health Network, and Day-to-Day Hospice in Indiana.
