Does non-profit status matter? Yes! For-profit agencies may say this is just a matter of tax ID status. Not so. Pathways makes a profit, but instead of paying it to shareholders or a private owner, we reinvest it in patient care—things like having pharmacists, diabetic educators and respiratory therapists on staff. It would be hard to find another home health or hospice agency with patient bonuses like this.
