About Us

At Rainier Healthcare

our mission is to provide our patients with the highest level of quality and compassionate care in order to create the most effective healing environment tailored to each individual on their journey to wellness.

Through our unique continuum,

we are able to offer a full spectrum of exceptional services ranging from home health and hospice, to respiratory care, durable medical equipment, and targeted disease management programs – all in the comfort of home.

By concurrently managing

all of these services we reduce gaps in care and communication that were once inherent to healthcare, and allow for the development of highly individualized plans of treatment created by our team of skilled health care professionals, and overseen by an individually assigned case manager.
