From our Reading, PA office, we provide home nursing care throughout Berks County, Schuylkill County and parts of Chester County.
Our office is open Monday through Friday from 8 am to 4:30 pm, except on selected holidays. A registered nurse is available 24 hours a day to accept patient calls, referrals for service and to arrange services for urgent patient needs.
If you have an URGENT CLINICAL NEED after office hours, you can reach the on-call nurse by calling our office. An answering service will take your name and telephone number and the nurse will be paged. The nurse will return your call and answer any questions you may have. To better assist you, we request that you contact us during office hours for questions related to your visit schedule or to order routine supplies.
