Twelvestone Announces Certificate of Need for Support (CON) for Home Health Services

MURFRESBORO, Tenn – TwelveStone Health Partners, a leading provider of comprehensive chronic disease treatment services based in Murfreesboro, announced Thursday that the application for TwelveStone Infusion Support CON was approved on September 28, 2022 for 90 counties in the State of Tennessee. . The CON application: including all 95 counties, was filed with the Health Facilities Commission on May 31, 2022.

TwelveStone’s comprehensive specialty pharmacy serves patients across Tennessee and has proposed service expansion by establishing a new home care organization and launching home health services. Many TwelveStone patients require home care nursing to help them administer injected or infused medications. The recently approved CON allows TwelveStone to provide nursing care to its patients when other home health options are unavailable.

“Achieving this CON allows TwelveStone to deliver on its promise of a positive and convenient experience for patients who require a higher level of care,” said Shane Reeves, Managing Director of TwelveStone Health Partners. “This is another way TwelveStone Health Partners is differentiating itself from other specialty pharmacies when it comes to providing the highest level of care for people with chronic and complex conditions.”

In recent years, more and more infusions are taking place in patients’ homes, for a variety of reasons. These include improvements in delivery systems for infusable pharmaceuticals, patient/consumer preferences, regulatory changes (including the FDA allowing more pharmaceuticals to be infused at home), requests for insurance and the COVID pandemic.

With CON approval, TwelveStone patients will have greater accessibility to receive their medications at home, providing an expansion of options complementing infusion service sites currently located in Murfreesboro, Spring Hill, Knoxville, Chattanooga with d others planned in Davidson County. This milestone will benefit their specialist referral partners in all markets, allowing them to provide care at a convenient infusion center near them or directly at home for even greater convenience.

“I would like to thank Richard Gregory, Director of Sales, Regional and National Accounts, Ashley Hempfling, Pharm D, CSP and Tara Harrelson, Chief Compliance Officer for their leadership and collaboration on this project,” said Dave Carter, Director of revenue, TwelveStone Health Partners.
