Horizon Home Care & Hospice, Inc. will optimize health and quality of life for patients and families in the home and other settings. Our clinical experience, relationship-centered care, and respect for patient rights set us apart as the region’s employer and provider of choice.
Our philosophy of compassion and responsiveness extends from our employees, to our hospital sponsors and physicians, and to the patients and families we are privileged to serve.
Home Care is a term used to describe any type of health care delivered in the home. This can range from infusions and wound care to meal preparation or a bath.
We celebrate the human spirit throughout the hospice process and bring security and compassion through our services. Your loved one deserves to be cared for by hospice specialists who make a loving difference in the lives of the people they serve, by doing the work they have a passion for.
Hospice care is brought to the person’s home, wherever that may be. Hospice is not a place, but a type of care focused on the individual’s comfort and wishes. Those who use hospice care are given the opportunity to determine where they will receive services and how much or how little support they need with the help of their specialized hospice team. Hospice care can be provided in the individual’s home, a family member’s home, a community facility, a specialized hospice facility or even a hospital.
Horizon Home Care & Hospice has taken great pride in hiring and nurturing the very best healthcare professionals since we were established in 1990. Joining the Horizon team is an opportunity to positively impact the lives of many individuals throughout our community, no matter what your role may be.
We are a growing, thriving not-for-profit leader comprised of individuals who care about their community and believe in Horizon's mission. Become a part of our family and feel valued and respected. Feel like you're home.
At Horizon, every employee is an integral part of a dedicated team, and a crucial component to our agency's success.
We recognize the importance of providing our staff with all of the training and tools needed to best perform their roles. All employees attend an introductory General Agency Orientation to learn about Horizon and meet members of Horizon's leadership team. Horizon highly prioritizes customer service as fundamental to our Mission, so all employees also complete an Interactive Customer Service Orientation.

Horizon is a Private Not-for-Profit formed in 1990 by four hospitals in the Milwaukee area: Columbia, Froedtert Lutheran Memorial, Community Memorial, and St. Mary’s hospitals. Created as a joint venture, the hospitals merged their home care, hospice, private duty, meals-on-wheels, and non- medical care activities into one organization. The newly formed organization was called Horizon Home Care & Staffing, Inc., located on Florist Avenue in Milwaukee. Two years later it applied for and was granted not-for-profit status and became Horizon Home Care & Hospice. Horizon is accredited by The Joint Commission, an honor that is retains to this day and is considered the premier provider of in-home services in the region. – less
