“Our primary opportunity is to continue to bring together people that want to be a part of a culture and organization that is working together to meet the needs of people who need health care at home,” says David Baiada, CEO of BAYADA Home Health Care. The company has recently adopted a nonprofit structure and has become the first home health care service to do so. He explains, “It’s very uncommon to make this type of shift, but at the end of the day, we decided our mission, long-term sustainability and commitment to our communities and employees is more important than money.”
BAYADA’s primary focus is on patients with critical conditions. Their perseverance in providing best care had led them to pioneer BAYAD Ability Rehab Solutions, the only specialized in-home rehabilitative nursing program in the world that serves patients with serious brain and spinal injury, disability, as well as illnesses such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and multiple sclerosis (MS).

BAYADA’s home care includes personal care and companionship services, where daily activity care is provided to patients with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease by certified nurses and home health aides. The clinicians and nurses provide a physician prescribed and customized therapy as per the patient requirement and effectively reduce any chances of re-hospitalization. BAYADA Pediatrics services help children under the age of 18 having complex medical conditions and critical care requirements. Additionally, in their list of ‘first time in home health care’, BAYADA has introduced a simulation-based lab training program for pediatric professionals. The program uses pediatric manikins to simulate real-life emergencies, which helps BAYADA pediatrics’ staff to gain immense decision-making experience equivalent to that of a hospital in a safe environment.
With over 300 office locations across 22 states in the U.S. and operations in India, South Korea, Ireland, and Germany, BAYADA is planning to expand its solution further across the globe. As BAYADA embarks on a new journey of a non-profit organization, the team has decided to channelize the company’s profit and surpluses toward education and development of their clinicians.
