Agency News

Recently, Executive Director Krisandra Panting made the important yet difficult decision to leave DHHA to relocate to Florida.
As many of you know, Krisandra’s leadership over the last few years has resulted in greater community impact, and has ensured that DHHA continues to fill a vital role in providing high quality nursing services to poor, sick elderly of the metro area. The Board of Directors is grateful to all that Krisandra has given to DHHA, and we wish her all the best.

What physicians are saying about our nursing care


To Dominican Home Health Agency:

As a geriatrician at Denver Health, I have turned to DHHA countless times over the years for help with our patients. I just wanted to thank you and your incredible staff for all the excellent nursing care your agency has delivered to my many patients in need.

So many of our patients at Denver Health do not qualify for benefits that would allow them to access care assistance in their homes. And yet, without that help, there is no question that these patients suffer worse health outcomes and have more need for emergency department and inpatient hospitalization care. Your agency has come to the rescue for these patients; I cannot overstate how much this has helped many of our frail seniors.

Not only do your team members provide excellent nursing care, but they offer that critical human contact – a listening ear, a friendly visit, a compassionate care giver.
In addition, I always know, as a physician, that your team will communicate with our team, helping us work together to provide the best care possible for our mutual patients.

Thank you to you and your team for all your amazing care.
You are so appreciated by Denver Health Geriatrics.

Sincerely,

Robin Yasui, MD
Director of Geriatrics
