Brief History

First Choice Home Health and Hospice of Utah is one of the leading home health and hospice agencies in Utah. We have earned this position because we are a family owned business and treat every one of our patients as a part of our own family.  As a trusted Home Health and Hospice provider in Utah, we work with closely with families, physicians, and caregivers to provide Medicare-certified home health care and hospice in the comfort of Utah homes or residences.  First Choice Home Health and Hospice of Utah offers a full spectrum of health care services customized to meet the individual needs of our patients.

Our fully licensed staff includes nurses, therapists, social workers, and nursing aides who work under the direction of a patient's physician to assist with a wide variety of health care needs.  First Choice Home Health and Hospice of Utah is committed to increasing the standard of home health and hospice care in Utah.  Excellent care is demonstrated regularly by the healing, improvement, and satisfaction of patients under our care.  First Choice Home Health and Hospice of Uta has continually maintained high levels of patient and family satisfaction.

First Choice Home Health and Hospice was first established in Utah on January 1996.  Marilyn Mower, a caregiver herself, started First Choice Home Health and Hospice of Utah with the goal to elevate the standard of home health care for patients in Utah.  She also hoped to create a company that treated its staff with dignity and respect.  The hope was that that dignity and respect would then be reciprocated to patients. 

Having worked personally as a home health aide, Marilyn used her direct experience in understanding and serving her patients to establish the values and standards of care upon which First Choice Home Health and Hospice of Utah has built its reputation.  Marilyn saw first-hand what was needed to serve her patients and their families and created an atmosphere where they were treated as part of her family.  "When you're with First Choice, you're with family" is still one of our guiding philosophies today.

In 2004, that same philosophy inspired First Choice Home Health of Utah to begin providing hospice care to the community in addition to home health care.  Few things at the end of life are more important than being surrounded by loving family who help provide care and comfort at a very tender time.  Marilyn wanted to extend the dignified and caring services that terminally ill patients deserve in a way that felt as though only family was at the bedside providing care.  First Choice Home Health and Hospice of Utah has succeeded in doing just that and today our hospice team serves many patients and their families throughout the Utah Wasatch Front.

Since 1996, First Choice Home Health and Hospice of Utah has grown from a startup agency with two employees, serving a handful of home health patients, to a rapidly growing organization with over 170 employees in Utah that serves hundreds of patients each year in both the home health and hospice fields.  First Choice Home Health and Hospice has been consistently recognized as a top Medicare Home Health and Hospice agency in Utah.

First Choice Home Health and Hospice of Utah has several offices across the Wasatch front.  Our staff travels to your home and provides home health and hospice services in Salt Lake County, Utah County, and Davis County.

First Choice Home Health and Hospice of Utah is committed to providing industry-leading care and delivering it with the love and compassion of family.  Excellent staff, innovative technology and a commitment to excellence in all that we do paves the way for First Choice Home Health and Hospice of Utah to make a real difference in the lives of all of those we associate and serve.
