Who needs home health?
The Inspiring Story of Health Systems 2000.
The story of Health Systems 2000 began in 1993 when Lisa Walker accepted a position as Administrator/Director of Nursing for a local home health care agency in Lake Charles. A lifelong resident of Lake Charles, Lisa is a proud graduate of Washington High School and McNeese State University, where she earned both bachelors’ and master’s degrees in Nursing. She is an Advanced Practiced Registered Nurse and Clinical Nurse Specialist.
After ten years’ experience in acute care, long-term care, and administrative nursing management, Lisa had her first encounter with home health care and discovered her niche. She found home health to be both challenging and rewarding. Ironically, at this same time, the State of Louisiana had lifted a long-standing moratorium on licensing new home health care agencies. Seizing this small window of opportunity, Lisa took a giant leap of faith and opened a home health care agency of her own. She was supported in this new endeavor by a small group of close family members and friends.
Lisa started the company in 1994 as a home-based business. Health Systems 2000 is currently the parent organization of Home Health Care 2000; Personal Care Services 2000; and Home Medical Equipment 2000.
The company started with one agency and today services over 2000 patients annually throughout the state. As the parent company, Health Systems 2000 coordinates administrative activities throughout the organization. Under Lisa’s direction, Health Systems 2000 has grown to be one of the largest free-standing home health care agencies and employs over 300 individuals. Since 1996, Home Health Care 2000 has achieved and currently maintains the “gold standard” of health care and carries the seal for National Quality Approval, which is Joint Commission Accreditation on Health Care Organization.
