"Veterans never lose their sense of duty. When the world needs us, we answer."

— Dr. “Missy” Givens, HomeFront Health Chief Medical Officer & Co-Founder

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.  

 

As the country scrambled to get control of what would end up being the worst pandemic in over a century, one woman, Dr. Melissa “Missy” Givens, was called upon by NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital to achieve the impossible. And she did. 

Dr. Givens, an Army Colonel who retired after 30 years of dedicated service, jumped back into the fire and helped establish the sprawling Ryan Larkin NewYork-Presbyterian Field Hospital to combat the pandemic. To bring hope where hope went missing. Powered by the efforts of countless former military medics, it was up and running in less than ten days. Lives were saved. Order was restored to the hospital. Key relationships were formed. And an idea sparked the formation of a company: patient behavior has changed for good, this isn’t just a temporary thing, we need to bring the care to the patient. 

 

Dr. Givens, now Chief Medical Officer of HomeFront Health, along with successful healthcare entrepreneur and Army Veteran, Jim Sweeney, founded HomeFront Health. The mission: to serve Americans wherever care is needed by utilizing one of our nation’s most valuable but untapped resources - former military-trained & field-tested medics.  

 

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