Who We Are

Who We Are

Ohio Valley Home Health was founded in 1991 to provide home health care to patients in Floyd, Clark, Harrison and Scott Counties in Indiana. Our founder, Malinda Kost-Shaffer, RN, was inspired by her passion for providing expert medical care in the home with an emphasis on respect and dignity. She has spent more than two decades instilling that same passion in everyone who cares for patients on behalf of Ohio Valley Home Health.

Today, that same vision continues to inspire all of us at Ohio Valley Home Health. Our Mission remains simple and clear: “To provide the finest level of home health care in the southern Indiana communities we serve.” As you will see in the Why Us? section of this site, we work hard to fulfill that mission every day, primarily by employing a stable medical staff that is both highly-skilled and highly empathetic.

Our management team, who see themselves as the caretakers of our founding vision, include:

Melissa Pierson, RN

Natalie Thacker, RN
