A Team Dedicated to Improving Healthcare

Throughout American history, some of the most successful businesses have been born out of great civic need. HomeFront Health’s mobile medical solution, staffed by former military medics, is no different.  

 

During the first four months of the COVID-19 pandemic, the American Hospital Association estimated that hospitals & healthcare systems lost on average nearly $51 billion per month. Hospitals were overwhelmed with infected patients. People stayed away from hospitals in record numbers, forgoing routine care, jeopardizing their own long-term health and the financial well-being of the hospitals.    

 

The future of care is in the home. The future of care is HomeFront Health.
